Apr 07, 2021 | Academic Affairs Dear Charger Community, We continue to make data- and expert-driven decisions in accordance with the UA System Comprehensive Health and Safety Plan to safely move closer to normal operations. Please note the following change to our COVID-19 health and safety requirements: Social Distancing: Effective May 10, the university will require a 3-foot distance between individuals instead of the current 6 feet. We are announcing this now so we can plan ahead for classes and events this summer, but please continue to maintain 6-foot distancing until May 10. This change is consistent with revised Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considerations for operating schools during COVID-19. After the statewide mask mandate is lifted, and until further notice, UAH’s campus mask/face covering requirement will continue inside university buildings and also outdoors when social distancing is not possible. In the coming weeks and months, please read official UAH emails and visit the Return to Campus website for the many updates and announcements to come. Thank you for all you continue to do to keep yourselves and others safe.
