AUC's Response to COVID-19


AUC has implemented campus-wide efforts to respond and protect the AUC community from the worldwide coronavirus outbreak:


Based on CDC, WHO, and government of Egypt guidelines on limiting mass gatherings, AUC is asking event organizers to postpone or cancel all events with public guests and more than 500 attendees until further notice. We will be revising these guidelines regularly. Please consider possible efforts to encourage social distancing, promote handwashing or use of sanitizers and other health safety measures. The CDC guidelines for event organizers maybe a helpful resource to consult.   

Hand Sanitizers on Buses 

Next week, all AUC buses will have hand sanitizers installed on the bus.
