SAU announces health policies for spring semester
As the latest coronavirus variant, Omicron, is producing challenges, Southern Arkansas University gears up for the spring semester, with classes scheduled to begin Wednesday, January 12. After careful consideration and evaluation for the overall well-being of SAU’s campus community, the Risk Management Task Force has announced updated public health policies for the return to campus.
SAU will open the spring semester with a mask mandate in effect for classrooms, shared offices, and when in transit within buildings. Although face masks will not be required in athletic venues during events, face masks are highly encouraged throughout campus. Signs will be posted outside individual offices of those employees requesting mask usage in personal spaces, and the Task Force requests visitors comply with these requests. SAU will again this semester provide disposable masks for students, faculty, and staff.
