Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Adrian College’s Pandemic Preparedness Task Force has been working for weeks preparing a COVID-19 mitigation plan for opening its campus to students this fall and is releasing the document noting that it will possibly have changes made in the future to adhere to state and federal regulations concerning COVID-19. The guidelines in this plan, titled “AC Preparedness Plan: Our Students, Our Response,” are based on current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local health departments. These guidelines will continue to be revised based on state and local regulations and guidance from the Lenawee County Health Department. The Preparedness Plan will be updated as needed.
MI Symptoms Daily Screening Tool
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. Individuals with the following symptoms may have COVID-19:
• Fever or chills
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Check out the Coronavirus Self-Checker to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care.
If you have any of the symptoms listed above or if you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, STAY HOME, contact your healthcare provider or the Student Health Center.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
○ If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home
• Put distance between yourself and other people outside of your home
○ Stay at least six feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people
• Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around other people
○ REMEMBER the cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in the case you are infected
• Cover coughs and sneezes
• Clean and disinfect often - including tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, facets, and sinks
• Monitor your health and be alert for symptoms of COVID-19
See the CDC’s guidance on Travel in the U.S. We ask that all AC community members consider options for limiting non-essential travel in accordance with state and local regulations and guidance.
