Today we received information from Jacksonville State University in regards to two students being exposed to COVID-19:
"While there are no confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the State of Alabama nor on JSU’s campus, the administration is committed to keeping our university community informed.
We received notice today that two JSU students have come into contact with someone in Georgia diagnosed with COVID-19. This possible contact occurred six days ago, out-of-state, and the JSU students have no symptoms of COVID-19. Although the students did attend classes after the exposure, they are not currently on campus.
We are working proactively with the Alabama Department of Public Health to protect our campus and community and taking necessary precautions. If the situation changes, we will notify campus. - Acting President, Dr. Don Killingsworth, Jr."
We, Calhoun County EMA, are working alongside Jacksonville State University and the local community to take necessary precautions.
