In response to the current status of COVID-19 in the United States, Aims Community College has activated an emergency operations team focused on coordinating the College’s response in accordance with the guidance provided by:
Aims Community College is continuously updating its information and guidance for the College community to address changing local and global conditions. These pages provide information about COVID-19 and its impacts to Aims, precautions that are being taken, prevention measures you can take and a compilation of frequently asked questions. This is an evolving situation, and more information will be added as it becomes available.
Aims Community College is committed to ensuring that all students are able to study and learn in an environment that is healthy, safe, and free from bias or discrimination. Public health emergencies, such as the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), are stressful times for people and communities.
Stigma can result from a lack of knowledge about how COVID-19 spreads. People may feel a need to blame or struggle to cope with fears about disease and death. A person’s ethnicity, language or association with a country or region is not a risk factor for this virus, nor a reason for blame. Fear and anxiety can lead to social stigma — including discrimination against a group of people, a place, or a nation. Everyone can help stop stigma related to COVID-19 by knowing the facts and sharing them with others in your community.
Aims Community College encourages the prompt reporting of any incident of discrimination and/or harassment. Reports related to incidents of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation can be made by:
