Health & Safety Protocols

Your safety matters. All who come to Austin Community College campuses and centers are welcome to wear face masks. Social distancing is encouraged to help reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and better ensure the health, safety, and well-being of all students, faculty, and staff, especially those who are most at-risk.

  • On-Campus Protocols
      • Wash and sanitize your hands prior to entering a classroom, office, or facility. Hand sanitizing stations, disinfecting wipes, soap, and water are readily available.
      • Continue to practice good hygiene by washing your hands frequently for 20 seconds.
      • Practice social distancing with all individuals.
      • Follow floor stickers that are placed throughout the campus to help guide social distancing in high traffic areas.
      • Schedules are staggered and courses have been divided into smaller sections to minimize contact with individuals.
      • The college cannot mandate indoor masking, but we are encouraging it during the Delta variant spike.
