Coronavirus Update, posted on 3/4/2020

There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at STAC. The College is operating normally: all classes, activities, and events are on their standard schedules under usual rules and policies. We have reviewed, and adjusted any planned College trips that involve international travel, on a case-by-case basis.  Members of our community should refer to U.S. State Department recommendations regarding their own foreign travel, including over the upcoming Spring break.

Please be assured that St. Thomas Aquinas College has plans in place should the situation with COVID-19 change and warrant extra precautions to safeguard health. We will update you on those if they come into play. Please take a moment to ensure your contact information is current and accurate in Banner and E2Campus.  You can check on Banner information by contacting the Registrar's Office at (845) 398-4300; E2Campus information can be updated here.

In the meantime, please remember that symptoms of COVID-19 can mimic those of flu or cold. Anyone who does not feel well should stay home and seek appropriate medical attention.

Please continue to practice good habits to prevent the spread of all respiratory illnesses. These include:

  • Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing — do not use your hands
  • Washing your hands often with soap and water. Using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you can't wash
  • Staying home if you are not feeling well
  • Avoiding contact with sick people
  • Getting the flu shot. It is not too late and flu vaccines help keep us healthy
