COVID-19 Update - 3/19

March 19, 2020 6:15 PM

Today, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a state-wide health order aimed at “flattening the curve.” Accordingly, we are taking the following measures on campus:

  • The Recreation and Fitness Center is now closed until further notice. Members have access to an at-home workout platform, free of charge, to assist them in staying active. Members are welcome to clear out personal lockers on Friday, March 20, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • The two dining establishments that remain open - Jack Hopper Dining Hall and The Red Rooster - are takeout only. Patrons will be provided a takeout box and will not be permitted to dine in.
  • Finally, all Alabama beaches are now closed. If you had plans to go to the beach over Spring Break, you should rethink that. In fact, recreational travel of any kind, be it domestic or international, is not a good idea.

Please stay safe by remaining home and avoiding places and activities where people congregate.

Thank you,
Dr. Don C. Killingsworth, Jr.
Acting President
