#JSUFamily: Out of concern for health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, the university will not resume in-person classes for the spring semester. However, we are committed to providing our students the outstanding education they expected upon enrolling at JSU and will continue classes via online instruction.

Online classes will resume on Monday, March 30. Exceptions to online delivery will be considered only in those limited cases where direct interaction is required for licensure or certification.

Most university offices will remain closed next week; however, critical administrative offices will be open with minimal staff to ensure continuity of operations, with support from staff working remotely. Departmental staff will be monitoring voicemail and email, with email being the first choice of communication.

We received word this morning from staff at Regional Medical Center Anniston that the COVID-19 test performed on the Person Under Investigation within the JSU family was negative. This is excellent news for the patient and all of us here at Jacksonville State University. We wish to express our gratitude to the medical professionals at RMC Anniston for providing their assistance during this time. We also thank the student for cooperating with self-isolation and wish him a speedy recovery.

We are aware that additional people connected with JSU have also been tested within the past few days as testing has become more widely available in our state. If we learn that a student, staff, or faculty member has been diagnosed with COVID-19, we will share that information with the campus community.

As you are likely aware, the number of COVID-19 cases in the State of Alabama climbed over the weekend. While no cases have been confirmed currently in Calhoun County, it is important that we all remain vigilant, practice good hygiene, and limit contact with others in public spaces. Please continue to wash your hands, cover your cough, sanitize your cellphones, and practice social distancing.

The University believed we would have COVID-19 test results to share with the JSU family early this morning. However, at this time, we still have not received this information. We share your frustrations and would like to explain what we understand about the situation.

Initially, the only diagnostic test that could be run for COVID-19 came from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The State of Alabama received very few of these test kits from the CDC. Those tests were to be performed in the state laboratory. Subsequently, commercial laboratories were allowed to run the same test. Three commercial laboratories in Alabama now have the capability to perform COVID-19 testing. Unfortunately, at this time, all of those laboratories are overwhelmed with tests to run. As of now, we have not been provided with the outcome of the test results that we are all awaiting.

We did get some good news tonight. On March 6, we announced that two students from Northwest Georgia were placed under quarantine following possible exposure. They are both healthy and asymptomatic. Both will be removed from self-isolation by tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued patience. The administration is working over the weekend and will update you as soon as we can. For general information regarding COVID-19 please visit our #coronavirus website at www.jsu.edu/coronavirus

As we all have heard time and time again from the CDC, one of the best things you can do to protect yourself from the Coronavirus is wash your hands often. The CDC recommends rinsing your hands, lathering up, scrubbing with soap for at least 20 seconds, and then rising off before drying.

How do you know if its been 20 seconds? Check out these 3 Jacksonville State University related song suggestions, all about 20 seconds or longer and ready for your hand-washing enjoyment https://bit.ly/39PHcfG

This afternoon we learned that a student has been declared a Person Under Investigation for COVID-19. This status means that the student met the criteria for testing, but the test results are pending. The student felt ill Sunday evening after returning from out-of-state. The student has only been to three locations on campus since Sunday evening: the weight training area at Kennamer Hall, Stone Center classroom 125, and the Student Health Center. All locations are being cleaned and sanitized this evening. We will learn more about the student’s medical status within the next 24-48 hours. In the interim, the Person Under Investigation has been placed in self-isolation, and his roommates have been moved to an alternate location and put in self-quarantine.
As part of JSU’s social distancing plan, effective Friday, March 13, all JSU classes will begin to transition to online/distance education. Classes will not meet in-person beginning Friday. Information will be forthcoming regarding special situations such as practica, internships, clinicals, dual enrollment courses, etc. The academic deans are working closely with faculty to determine continuity in course delivery, and more information will be sent soon.
All campus events have been cancelled, including student organization activities (both on campus and off) and external events hosted on campus until further notice. Additional details regarding operations will be sent later this evening.
For more information please continue to monitor the www.jsu.edu/coronavirus website!

The following list of questions and answers has been provided in response to the announcement on March 6 that two students were minimally exposed to COVID-19 while working out of state. The FAQ list will be updated as needed.

JSU Nursing students have collaborated with Gadsden Middle School to provide a program called “Innovative Recruitment: Promoting Careers in Nursing” for 8th-grade students. The shortage of registered nurses is expected to intensify as the Baby Boomers age and the need for health care expands. As part of a grant, this project allowed these students an opportunity to explore and discover different aspects and job opportunities in nursing. #JSUNursing
