In a message sent to Asnuntuck Community College students CEO Coach shared Asnuntuck’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. This information has been updated to reflect the need to temporarily close the campus.
As you have no doubt heard, the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is spreading globally and has now been designated as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. I want to emphasize that there are no known cases associated with ACC faculty, staff, or students. We are working closely with the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities President Mark Ojakian to keep our community as safe and healthy as possible and continue to take every precaution to mitigate potential impact on campus. Please see the following precautionary measures:
- Following Spring Break, all classes will be moved to an online-only format until at least Sunday, April 5
- Students who engage in off-campus clinics, internships, and similar experiential activities, may continue to attend them if their respective facility remains open. Please check with your supervisor, if necessary.
- All campus events scheduled between March 14 and April 5 are canceled (no matter the size), including those sponsored by external clients.
- Asnuntuck’s building will remain closed until at least March 23rd.
As one might expect, the situation and conditions are changing by the day—sometimes by the hour. Be assured that we continue to work closely with President Ojakian, the Connecticut Department of Public Health, and the Governor’s Office to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for all members of our campus community.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we work through all necessary adjustments. I urge you to continue to follow CDC guidelines for staying healthy.
