COVID-19 Mar. 11 Update

SAU Community,
500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

 There are no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus at Spring Arbor University or in Jackson County at this time.

The Coronavirus Planning Team is actively monitoring this situation and is in communication with the Governor’s Office, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Michigan Health Department and Michigan Independent Colleges and Universities (MICU). SAU is maintaining normal operations with some modifications. We will outline specific amendments to campus operations in subsequent messages. In addition to this, we will be implementing the recommendations from the Governor’s office [PDF] that were communicated this evening at 5:00.

The most significant recommendation for our residential campus is to cancel or postpone large public gatherings within the next 30 days. All classroom instruction in all modalities will not experience any changes at this time.

If you have health concerns or questions please e-mail and contact your Primary Care Physician. The CDC recommends not going to any health center, but e-mailing, calling and/or scheduling a virtual appointment with your health care provider. 

For all updates regarding this situation, please review as this is the most up-to-date space for communication. If you have any general questions about SAU’s plans and responses to the coronavirus outbreak, please email
