March 13th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) will further extend Spring Break through Sunday, March 22. This includes current online courses. All credit courses will be offered online from Monday, March 23 until at least Sunday, April 5.

 

Non-credit classes and training through the ACM Center for Continuing Education and Workforce Development will suspend instruction beginning Monday, March 16 and continuing through Sunday, April 5. This includes ACM workforce trainings offered through the Bedford County Technical Center.

 

ACM will be open for students who wish to complete their online coursework at the College or utilize Student Services during normal business hours. Students are not required to be on campus while credit courses are offered online. Students enrolled in clinical experiences or field classes are asked to contact their Program Director for additional information.

 

ACM’s Culinaire Café in Downtown Cumberland will be closed until at least Monday, April 6 and will tentatively reopen on Tuesday, April 7. The cafeteria on the Cumberland campus will offer limited service hours. The Pantry, which provides food and personal care products to current ACM students in need, will be open by appointment.

 

ACM’s Early College classes taught in public high schools will follow the status of their local school districts.

 

Student group tours and the Spring Transfer Fair scheduled for March 26 are canceled. All non-essential College events, gatherings, and activities involving 25 or more people are strongly discouraged.

 

Student athletes are asked to contact Athletic Director Tommie Reams for updates regarding practices and scheduled games.

 

Students are asked to monitor ACM’s website and their student email account for continued updates. ACM’s COVID-19 webpage at www.allegany.edu/coronavirus will have the most current information.

 

Students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors who exhibit coronavirus 2019 disease symptoms (fever, cough, and shortness of breath) are asked to refrain from visiting ACM’s six locations. 

 

“We appreciate the patience of our students and their families as we strive to ensure the safety and well-being of our entire college community during this ever-evolving public health crisis. Like other colleges across the nation, we can’t anticipate the impact that the novel coronavirus disease 2019 may have on our institution this semester,” said ACM President Dr. Cynthia Bambara.

 

There are currently no confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at ACM or in Western Maryland. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced aggressive, ongoing measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on March 12 following Maryland’s first case of community transmission.
