Texas Woman's University Staff Handbook
Problem Solving & Rules of Conduct: HIV Infection/AIDS

According to the best available, reliable information from the Centers for Disease Control of the United States Public Health Service, individuals infected with HIV and individuals with AIDS do not present a health risk to other people in circumstances that do not include sharing or direct exposure to infected blood, other body fluids, and/or blood products. Exposure to HIV is defined in terms of broken skin, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with infected blood/blood products, body fluids, tissue, cell cultures, and/or culture media.

A TWU student or employee who has been diagnosed clinically as infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or as having Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) will be dealt with by the University in a manner that is consistent with federal and state laws, the latest policies set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and approved University policies.

For additional information, please see University Policy 6.04 "HIV Infectious/Aids Among TWU Student and Employees".
