To slow the spread of COVID-19, UofSC Aiken asks everyone to take personal responsibility to protect the health and safety of UofSC Aiken University faculty, staff, students, and visitors.

All suppliers and visitors must wear cloth face coverings in all hallways, elevators, public spaces, and common areas, and when entering any campus buildings.

Cloth face coverings must also be worn in office and outdoor spaces where physical distancing is challenging to maintain. Wearing a face covering is not required in private offices or when alone in a space.

In addition to wearing cloth face coverings, you must also take the following personal precautions while on campus:

  • Practice physical distancing at all times (at least six feet of physical separation between yourself and others).
  • Practice good personal hygiene, including washing hands frequently with soap and water or using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap is unavailable.
  • Routinely clean and sanitize shared equipment.
  • Adhere to the guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and federal and state governmental authorities, to protect your health and the health of the UofSC Aiken community.
