In just a few days, we will welcome everyone back to UA for the Fall 2020 Semester. As you prepare to head back to campus, make sure you follow these simple steps:

Test – Every student and employee must be tested for COVID-19 and receive a negative result before returning to campus or participating in any campus activity. Learn more about testing.

Train – Students and employees are required to take an online training course that includes important information about health and safety expectations as well as useful steps to take at home and in the community. Learn how to access the learning plan

Check – Everyone should begin checking their symptoms daily through UA’s Healthcheck, a simple 30-second assessment tool that allows you to report any COVID-19 related symptoms, exposure history and testing history. You should use the tool as frequently as each day, but once every three days is required.

Remember, we must all do our part to have a healthy and safe semester.

Weather permitting, the University will test its emergency notification systems, including UA Alerts, the public address system and digital signage Wednesday, Aug. 5, at 11:55 a.m.
