  2. Safety Protocols For Entering DAU Facilities

DoD and DAU's first priority is the protection of our people. To help our students and employees navigate the geographic variations required by our response to the COVID-19 virus, we've pulled together the following information based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As part of this guidance, DAU is using the new CDC defined COVID-19 Community Levels. This new classification system helps communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. If a location's community level reaches "High," all DAU employees, students, and visitors are required to wear a mask while inside a DAU facility.
