employees will be required to drive through the health checkpoint before entering
any campus buildings each day to have their temperature checked (until further
notice).The checkpoint will be located at the corner of South Jackson Street
and North University Drive (in front of Councill Hall). The only exception will be

STAY HORNET STRONG
FOLLOW SAFETY PROTOCOLS
ASU has adopted several protocols to ensure the health and safety of its
students, employees and visitors. ASU is a mask mandatory campus. To “stay
safe together,” all ASU employees, students and visitors will be required to
follow additional protocols, such as social distancing, following campus/building
directional instructions, washing hands, cleaning items used, etc.
All students will be required to complete the COVID-19 questionnaire prior
to returning to campus. An employee and student self-check tool is being
developed. COVID-19 testing protocols are being established for the campus
community. It is also important for us all to stay mentally strong during these
challenging times. ASU will continue to provide counseling for all employees and
students, as needed. Please reach out to the Counseling Center for assistance at
