All AACC-related out-of-state and international travel is suspended until further notice. Personal travel is at each person’s own comfort level and discretion. Should employees or students choose to travel internationally: the CDC advises to avoid destinations with a level 2 alert and level 3 warning. It is requested that each person make the college aware of travel plans to level 2 and 3 countries. If a student or employee chooses to travel to locations with these travel notices, they will be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to class or work.
“Currently, there are no confirmed cases associated with AACC, however, the college is at a stage where we all can play a role in protecting the health and safety of our community,” said President Dawn Lindsay. “Thank you for your attention and cooperation as we work together and support one another.”
