UACCM To Continue Following CDC Guidelines

Dear UACCM Students, Faculty, Staff, and Community:

I am hopeful this note finds each of you having had a great spring break, and reenergized to complete the final weeks of the semester. I never cease to be amazed at just how quickly the semester finishes out after spring break.

Almost 15% of Arkansans have now been COVID vaccinated. In addition, a significant number of our students are now eligible for vaccination with the opening of Phase 1-C recently.  In fact, we are currently collaborating with a local pharmacy to sponsor a campus student vaccination clinic very soon. What a welcomed sign of progress as we work together to protect ourselves and loved ones from the spread of the pandemic. Please watch your campus email, alerts, and social media channels for more information about the upcoming clinic.

Due to your diligence over the last year, we were fortunate to not have to fully transition to online or remote instruction as many other campuses did, so – thank you. You wore your masks. You socially distanced. You adapted and overcame in the classroom. You sacrificed by not getting to fully experience all of our student activities, events, and functions that enhance your overall college experience. And that’s why it is with a great deal of excitement that we are announcing fully resuming normal face-to-face instruction for the Fall, 2021 semester with a constant check on the recommended safety measures. In short, it means we can gather responsibly.

However, per the UACCM face covering policy, and the Governor's Executive Order 21-07 extending the COVID-19 pandemic public health emergency through May 30, 2021, for now and the remainder of the spring semester UACCM will maintain the current face covering usage and social distancing while on any UACCM property as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. In essence, we will continue to function as we have since the beginning of the academic year.

A continued commitment to diligence with respect to campus policy is much appreciated as we work together to stamp out the spread of COVID. At UACCM, we take your safety seriously and do not want to let our guards down after coming this far.
