Alabama A&M is implementing extensive safety and sanitation procedures using guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Alabama Department of Public Health, and the American College Health Association,

Some of the safety and sanitation implementations will include:

  • Temperature checks upon entry into high-traffic facilities
  • Social distancing guidelines
  • Face masks required for all students, employees and visitors while in public spaces
  • Sneeze guard shields in high-traffic offices
  • Increased sanitizing stations throughout campus
  • Reduced capacity in the dining hall

The Health & Counseling Center will provide the campus community with instructions on how to complete required testing and virtual training modules prior to fully engaging on-campus.

The university says their plans are subject to change as they continue to monitor COVID-19 and follow the guidelines of the CDC, ADPH, and ACHA.
