Updated Health Screenings
Beginning Monday, January 10, ACC will reinstitute health screenings at the door using the Appian Health Screening App. Each building will have at least one entrance staffed with screening personnel. Health screenings are required for all who come to campus. Face masks are still mandatory on campus.
