Local businesses can help us all stay open by taking a pledge to help fight the spread of COVID-19. As UAB students and employees come to campus and to the Southside this week, we hope that you will join us in this fight. We want to remain open and keep our students and employees healthy, and you play a key role in keeping our students and employees here and safe.

If COVID-19 causes UAB to suspend in-person instruction and send students home, we all lose. Our world-renowned faculty experts have worked around the clock over the last several months with our System colleagues to put in place one of the nation’s most comprehensive safety plans to minimize risk on our campus. We are depending on you to help minimize risk off-campus.
