From newborns to the elderly, and every age in between, we help people breathe easier.

They need graduates trained to enter the clinical workforce. Our faculty are dedicated to providing a high quality, cost efficient program to train students to become competent, professional, advanced-level respiratory therapists.

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.
