COVID- 19 INFORMATION
American University of Nigeria is constantly monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff is our major concern. We are also committed to safeguarding our host community. The university remains open, this website is updated regularly, and all members of the AUN community are advised to check-in for new information.
WHAT AUN IS DOING TO KEEP YOU SAFE?
- A mandatory temperature check station has been installed at the main gate and at other main buildings on campus
- Hand sanitizer stations have been placed at multiple contact points on campus
- All international travels on behalf of AUN are banned from this day forward; any member of the community planning a personal international trip must first inform Human Resources and the Health Center to obtain approval before travel
- All returnees from international locations, even personal trips, must fill health forms and be cleared by Human Resources and the Health Center before re-entry into AUN
WORRIED ABOUT SYMPTOMS?
- If you experience a fever, a cough, difficulty breathing or a general feeling of being unwell, we encourage self-isolation. Please reach out to the AUN Health Center hotlines: (Intercom: 5555 Mobile: 08148173622, 08084274666.)
- Community members must be conscious of their recent travel history or contact with any COVID-19 known cases
- Avoid large gatherings unless absolutely necessary. This does not include classes and laboratories, all AUN classes and laboratories are still in session and attendance is mandatory
- University-sponsored domestic travel to affected areas this semester is strongly discouraged
- Book further travel at your own discretion; there is no guarantee you will be able to come back to AUN if you travel outside of Yola/Jimeta
General recommendations from AUN Health Center
- Wash your hands frequently, particularly after contact with respiratory secretions.
- Hand hygiene includes cleaning hands either with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand rub/hand sanitizer.
- Avoid shaking hands, hugs, etc.
- Try to greet by a wave, a nod, or a bow
- Avoid touching surfaces, handrails door handles when possible.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a flexed elbow or tissue paper when coughing or sneezing.
- Dispose of tissues immediately after use
- Refrain from touching the mouth and nose.
- A medical mask is not required if exhibiting no symptoms, as there is no evidence that wearing a mask – of any type – protects non- sick persons.
