COVID-19 Resources and Guidance


Auburn University is carefully monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and taking bold and swift actions to flatten the curve of the rate of infection while maintaining central services to support education and critical research.

Risk Management and Safety’s response is based on the guidance of Auburn experts and of local, state, and federal officials, and follows key principles:

  • RMS’s actions will be guided by considerations for health and safety of faculty, staff, students, and neighbors.
  • Guidance about health and safety made by RMS in the context of COVID-19 will be evidence-based and data-driven to the extent possible.


Please see our information below as well as the University’s COVID-19 Information Page for more information.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact 334-844-4870 or so we may get a message to the appropriate RMS staff member to address your needs.


Current Status of Risk Management and Safety (RMS)

RMS will continue to provide our critical services as needed for the university community. This includes 24/7 emergency response services and other services as needed to serve our research, student life and others in the community.  Our building is currently locked per University Alternate Operation guidance, so we ask individuals to contact us prior to coming to our office.
