Tigers News · ACS Covid Update- 7/27/20


Auburn City Schools is following the guidelines and recommendations provided by the Alabama High School Athletic Association for summer athletic events.

 A student who reports positive symptoms is not allowed to take part in the on-campus activity and is asked to contact a healthcare provider.

While the mission of ACS continues, the means, methods, and processes of delivery must be balanced against the risks of COVID-19. Risks can be mitigated, but not eliminated. The Alabama Department of Public Health and best evidence indicate that community-based transmission has occurred and will continue.

The first line of defense for preventing the spread of infection in our schools is the home defense. Parents and families should be familiar with the symptoms associated with infection and keep students at home if any of these symptoms are evident. These symptoms include:

  • Fever of 100.4, especially first thing in the morning
  • Cough, runny nose, or sinus congestion
  • Trouble breathing or persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • Abdominal pain or stomach ache; Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Body aches
  • New loss of taste or smell
