The MAU Board continues to monitor changes related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As of today, there are no plans to cancel regular scheduled classes or to close our campus. Further, in the absence of any reported COVID-19 cases among the University and South Florida communities, we are taking proactive mitigation strategies to prevent the contact and spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) among our MAU community.
Events on and off campus
As a mitigation strategy, all MAU student services (Alumni Association, SAC) related activities and events will be suspended from Wednesday, March 11 to Wednesday, April 1.
At this time, MAU has not canceled any scheduled classes.
Spring Break- Travel Restrictions:
- Avoid any traveling and stay at home with love ones during spring break:
- Any member of the University community who travels to or from any of the COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is spreading widely) are requested to self-identify prior to returning to MAU campus and will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Students returning from these countries must contact Student Service at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be cleared to return to campus.
- Please keep in that mind travel notices are changing almost daily and therefore, updates on these travel alerts should be heeded. As a first step in planning any trip abroad, check CDC Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html
