As is the case with all AUCC member institutions, Morehouse College’s protocols are informed by guidance from the Georgia Department of Public Health, Fulton County Board of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While these protocols are detailed, the effectiveness of these plans are dependent upon adherence by all members of the AUCC community who accept responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of others. Because the public health environment may change, these guidelines may be amended should conditions and public health responses dictate.
