April 9, 2021 - Governor Kay Ivey issued her twenty-sixth supplemental emergency proclamation transitioning the state from an amended Safer at Home Order to a new Safer Apart Order, the third phase of COVID-19 pandemic health orders. Masks will no longer be mandated statewide, but individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or other facial covering when in public and in close contact with other people.
Although masks are no longer mandated by the state, masks are required on Drake State campus until further notice. Students should check the College’s website, Canvas, and their Drake State student email for additional updates.
Student success is our priority. In fact, Drake State is designated a Caring Campus by the Institute of Evidence-Based Change. This means that each faculty and staff member is dedicated to creating the best experience for every student. We want you to have the tools, resources, and important information to help you excel and to feel safe, supported and heard. Please review the content below to find helpful links to resources available to current Drake State Students. If you cannot find the information you are searching for, please email your question or request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and someone will respond to your email within 24 hours.
We are working daily to consider everyone’s health and safety. Our COVID precautions include required masks, student temperature screenings, hand sanitization stations throughout campus, reduced room capacity to allow for appropriate social distances, and a daily sanitization schedule.
The Drake State Campus Security maintains a 24/7 presence on campus. To review the annual Campus Security Report click here.
