Updated May 16, 2019 at 9:25 AM EST

The University of Maryland at College Park said it hired two outside doctors in April to review the school’s response to the adenovirus outbreak. The physicians, David Reitman and Paul Seligman, were paid $1,000 each. Reitman, who serves as the medical director at American University’s student health center, did not respond to requests seeking comment. Seligman recently worked with the dean of the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health on a project about responding to public health emergencies. In an interview, Seligman said he and Reitman separately reviewed the documents provided by the university, which did not include emails or minutes from the Campus Infectious Disease Management Committee, and then wrote the report together. They concluded the university followed policies and procedures.
