The administration of Anna Maria College continues to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the latest updates from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Department of Public Health (DPH) in order to determine the best course of action for the College. At this time, the decision has been made to continue with all operations and events as scheduled. We are aware that this is a fluid situation and will notify the community immediately if there are any changes.
The Center for Disease Control has been posting daily updates here. Information from the CDC on how you can protect your health is posted here. Be sure to practice good hygiene and wash your hands regularly.
If you have been close to someone with the virus or have been to a high risk area you are at higher risk. A real-time interactive map of high risk areas can be found here. It is vital that we each do our part to stop the spread of this illness in our community. Please be aware of the following protocols that students are required to follow:
*If you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, do not return to campus until you are fever free, without using medication, for 24 hours
*Students who develop a fever while on campus are required to return home. Students are unable to return to campus until they are fever free, without medication, for 24 hours.
*Students who live outside of New England or the Tri-State may be provided an isolation space on campus pending availability.
Until further notice, the Student Health Service is requiring students to call ahead to schedule an appointment or to speak directly to the College Nurse. Amy Bouvier, RN will instruct the student to make an appointment with Health Services or to take other actions. The phone number to call is 508-849-3315.
