While ACOM-sponsored domestic and international travel is canceled until further notice, the College understands that students may want to conduct personal travel to see family or to fulfill personal obligations.
Travel can increase the risks of COVID-19 exposure to you and the community. ACOM urges everyone to be mindful of COVID-19 during this time. The College strongly discourages any personal trips to areas currently experiencing active community transmission of the virus. Students taking personal trips to an impacted area (including layovers through an impacted area) must be prepared to comply with self-isolation requirements upon their return to Dothan.
Government restrictions and public health measures are changing fast, and you will be subject to any regulations and advisories from the US Government and other relevant agencies during your travel. If students choose to travel during the time the ACOM campus is closed to students, please consider the following posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Things to consider before travel:
Do you have a plan for taking time off from work or school, in case you get exposed to, or are sick with, COVID-19?
If you have close contact with someone with COVID-19 during travel, you may be asked to stay home to self-monitor and avoid contact with others for up to 14 days after travel. If you become sick with COVID-19, you may be unable to go to work or school until you’re considered noninfectious. You will be asked to avoid contact with others (including being in public places) during this period of infectiousness.
