1. When will the school reopen?

AUPP will reopen for in-person classes on Monday, November 15, 2021.

2. What are the safety measures in place on campus?

  • Two separate entrances for University students (front and side entrance of building)
  • Temperature check and hand sanitizer at main gate and at building entrance
  • Scan StopCovid QR before entering campus
  • Classrooms are set up with social distancing for maximum number of allowed students in one room as per MoEYS and MOH guidelines
  • Reminders on 3 do’s and 3 dont’s visible all around campus

3. Is a vaccination card required before coming back on-campus?

All AUPP faculty, staff, and students are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid 19 before entering the AUPP campus. Please make sure to show your vaccine card before entering campus on November 15.

4. What do faculty and students need to do before coming back on-campus?

All AUPP students, faculty and staff will be required to submit the AUPP Covid Health Declaration Form (HDF) online daily if they plan to come to campus. The HDF may be accessed via SIS login and is recommended to be completed before coming to campus. Printed copies can also be filled out manually at the entrance to campus, in case of online challenges.

Entry to the Campus will be dependent upon the Color Code resulting from answers to the HDF questionnaire.

  • Red: No Entry
  • Orange: Further assessment by AUPP Nurse to determine if student will be allowed entry or not
  • Green: Allowed Entry

5. Is there a specific entrance / exit for University use?

AUPP faculty, staff, students and campus guests / visitors should use the front and side entrance of the building. Please see map as reference. 

6. Will the canteen be open?

The canteen is currently still not allowed to operate. We encourage all students to bring their own lunch / snacks as well as drinking water bottles to school. Students may bring their own meals and eat it in the canteen, or in other designated areas around campus.

Should students prefer to have breaks outside of campus, there is no need to fill-up the HDF form again if they come back on campus the same day.

7. Where can students go / stay in between classes?

The library will be open for any students who wish to stay on-campus between classes. Safety protocols should continue to be observed while in the library.

8. What class schedule will we follow and there still be an option to do online classes?

All class schedules (weekdays and time) remain the same. Please check SIS for information on your class schedules.

  • Classes with 4-14 students can study on campus.
  • Classes with 15-28 students will be hybrid – they will be divided into Team A and B that will shift weekly. The instructor, however, will be teaching on campus every week.
  • Classes with 29 and more students will stay online.
  • FHSU online course schedule remain the same

Hybrid classes will be accommodated should the class size be more than what can be accommodated in one classroom. Please note: even if the class is listed on campus, the online option will still be provided for those who can’t come to campus due to health or personal issues.

9. Will the sports center and other student activity areas be open for students?

The sports center will be open for students and staff, subject to scheduling. The student activity areas will remain closed for this semester (Fall Semester 2021).

10. Can I go to the CSI to study or connect with other students?

The Center for Student Involvement will be open to Student Affairs and Admissions staff only. Per MOEYS regulations, student club activities are to remain virtual.

11. What happens if a student feels unwell or presents with Covid19 symptoms while on campus?

The student will be attended to and cared for by the AUPP nurse and brought to the designated isolation area in AUPP. Parents will be immediately contacted to pick-up their child and MOH hotline 115 will also be informed of the positive case.

12. Can I still participate in campus activities?

Yes, you will be required to wear a mask during the activity and follow safety protocols.

13. Will my instructor or other students have access to my vaccination status?

No. The information is confidential.

14. I am not taking any in-person classes. Do I need to complete the Health Declaration form?

Even if you are taking classes online, you will need to complete the health declaration form prior to participating in any in-person university activities, such as meeting with a staff member, visiting the library, or attending a campus event, so we encourage you to complete the form now. If you are not attending any AUPP classes or activities in person, you do not need to submit a health declaration form. 

15. What is the consequence of providing false vaccination status information?

The safety of our students and employees is our top priority. Intentionally providing incorrect information may result in progressive disciplinary action, up to and including student conduct violations or termination of employment. 

16. If I am vaccinated, are there other precautions I still need to take?

Vaccines do not provide 100% protection against COVID-19, and the efficacy length is still unknown. All individuals should follow health and safety protocols consistent with their level of risk. 

17. If a person tests positive for Covid-19 are they still required to notify the university?

Yes, the university Nurse will continue to follow up with those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and assist the Covid Response Team to ensure appropriate contact tracing within the college community.
