Following the ‘standing down’ by the National Public Health Service, the Local Health Board, the Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust, and the Welsh Assembly Government senior response teams, in relation to the pandemic swine flu threat, Cardiff University, in its ongoing assessments, has also reviewed its position.
As the risk from this infection is now considered small, the risk rating for the University community is now a ‘watching brief’. Consequently in line with its Escalation Plan the University’s Major Incident Strategy Team is also standing down. The swine flu advice posters distributed throughout the University will be removed shortly.
The considerable planning work which has been undertaken by the University in response to this pandemic will provide a basis for the University’s preparedness for other similar hazards.
