FACILITY-SPECIFIC GUIDANCE

Many chapters have begun to reopen facilities, and it is vital chapters continue to follow the safety guidelines Alpha Chi Omega provided in June. Even after move-in, chapters are expected to follow these guidelines in the chapter facilities as we all work together to keep ourselves and others safe:
  1. Maintain a safe social distance when around others
  2. Wear a face covering when outside of your individual living space
  3. Wash/sanitize your hands often

Please review the Chapter Facility COVID-19 Guidelines and the Opening AXΩ: Guidelines for Returning to the Chapter Facility resource, as there is a lot of important information to understand.

We recognize our members may be impacted by the many colleges and universities that are altering the delivery of their classes to online education and have varying degrees of disrupted campus activities.
