COVID-19 Campus Guide & Updates

University maintains face mask requirement as COVID-19 cases increase locally

Based on COVID-19 data reported by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Auburn University at Montgomery will continue to require that students and employees properly wear face masks in classrooms and other shared indoor spaces on campus.

According to ADPH, COVID-19 cases in Alabama and Montgomery County have soared due to the highly contagious omicron variant. In Montgomery County, cases increased by 80 percent from the the previous week with a 49.6 percent positivity rate among those tested.

It is important that we work together as a campus community to safeguard one another and minimize disruptions to learning and working environments. The simplest preventative measure involves properly wearing a face mask — securely covering your mouth and nose — when in a classroom, hallway, elevator, common area or other shared indoor space. For more information regarding AUM’s COVID plan, please review the Spring 2022 Pandemic Plan.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently shortened the recommended isolation and quarantine period for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 should isolate for five days if they are symptom-free or if their symptoms are subsiding (fever-free for 24 hours), followed by five days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting those they may encounter.

AUM has modified its current guidance to align with CDC recommendations. Employees and students who test positive for COVID-19 should continue to self-report test results to the Office of Human Resources and the Dean of Students, respectively.

COVID-19 symptoms may include the following:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Warhawk Health Services will continue to offer COVID-19 testing for members of the campus community. The university will soon share information on additional opportunities for students and employees to receive COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots.

Key components of the Spring 2022 semester plan include:
