Preventing outbreaks, and responding to infectious disease

Although rare, outbreaks of various kinds do occur in college residential halls, the most important thing you can do as a RA is to work to prevent these infections before they occur. Encourage your residents to practice proper hygiene, get their vaccinations, and report anything unusually to Residential Life.
