UC Berkeley's ban on admission due to SARS fear


The announcement below by UC Berkeley is quite a bit different from the AP story headline carried by KCBS. It appears that the AP headline is wrong, and Berkeley's policy is still in direct contrast to CDC's policy which can be located at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/sars/hostingarrivals.htm. I think Berdahl should be fired because CDC came out on May 14th that no one should cancel or postpone classes, but Berkeley only partially lifted the ban for a second time on May 15th. If you click on the Berkeley news link, it still says more than 500 ESL students are still banned. The May 15th announcement only allowed another 63 or 64 applicants to attend. Guy M.
