Update on UAA’s COVID-19 response and protocols
by Cathy Sandeen, UAA Chancellor |
Dear UAA Community,
I continue to be proud of UAA’s contributions to support the municipality and state’s COVID-19 response. As the pandemic continues to evolve, I want to update you on two items for general awareness, as well as clarity surrounding our procedures.
- Although the CDC, State of Alaska and Municipality of Anchorage have announced some additional options for quarantine that could affect university policies, UAA will continue to follow the 14-day quarantine protocol through the end of the semester. There is no change to our quarantine protocols at this time.
- As you know, the State of Alaska has a contract with the university to use the Alaska Airlines Center (AAC) as part of the COVID-19 response. Over the weekend, Dec. 4–6, the state will be conducting training to enhance COVID-19 mitigation planning and preparation, resulting in increased activity at the AAC. Please note UAA has no active operations in the AAC at this time.
Thank you for your patience, flexibility and understanding as we continue to navigate this unusual time of COVID-19.
