Masking required at UAA

Effective Aug. 2, face masks will be required indoors at all University of Alaska locations in communities with a transmission level of 'substantial' or 'high,' as defined by CDC guidelines, except when you are in a private residence or alone in a private office with the door shut.

Face covering and quarantine update

In late May, consistent with CDC guidance, we relaxed our masking requirement for those fully vaccinated. Since then, the emergence and rapid spread of the delta variant has resulted in changes to CDC guidance. That has prompted us to re-evaluate our approach.

'Drop! Cover! Hold on!' during an earthquake

The magnitude 8.2 earthquake off the coast of the Alaska Peninsula this week has served as an opportunity to think about what we should do if such an event happened wherever we are. The UAA Office of Emergency Management (OEM) asks that you remember to “Drop! Cover! Hold on!” — which means we should drop to the floor, duck under a sturdy piece of furniture if possible, and hold on to that desk or table as it moves.
