[Berkeley, May 6, 2003] UC-Berkeley’s President Robert Berdahl announced in a statement the university's rejection of students from SARS-infected countries; namely, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and some southeast Asian nations. This is the first US university that has publicly prohibited the entry of students from SARS-infected countries. Berdahl expressed that the health officials and Berkeley city officials have strongly advised the university to take this action as a preventative measure. He emphasized that if the Centers for Disease Control cancels its travel warning to these countries, Berkeley will consequently lift its ban on new students from those countries.
