COVID-19 Cases

In an effort to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, Southern Adventist University has implemented a Quarantine and Isolation Policy. While Southern cannot comment on individual cases, the university is following strict quarantine and isolation protocols and is working closely with the Hamilton County Health Department to carry out contact tracing. Our University Health Center, Residence Life, Counseling Services, and Chaplain’s Office staff are also providing support and care for those in quarantine or isolation.
