Snead State Community College, along with the The Alabama Community College System (ACCS) through the Department of Postsecondary Education, is closely monitoring the current outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Ebola‐affected countries through the Centers for Disease Concert and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization, and the U.S. Department of State, as well as through communications with State public health officials and college peers.
In order to provide students, faculty, and employees with a safe environment for education and work, Snead State is communicating to students the CDC’s warning travel notices for individuals traveling to and from Ebola‐affected countries.
Snead State also asks students who have been in Ebola‐affected countries within the past 21 days to identify themselves in one of the following ways:
The College will assess any reports of students who have been in Ebola‐affected countries within the past 21 days and determine any necessary steps, such as an additional health screening or monitoring.
According to the CDC, Ebola poses little risk to the U.S. general population and is not contagious until symptoms appear. It is spread through direct contact with blood or body fluids (such as urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, and semen) of an infected person, or with objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with the virus. This includes through intimate contact, such as sex, since Ebola can still be found in semen for seven weeks after a person has recovered.

Effective January 2, 2013, Snead State Community College is a tobacco free campus. Smoking and use of tobacco products will not be permitted anywhere on campus, including instructional sites, centers, campus buildings, sidewalks, parking lots, building entrances and common areas, and in college-owned vehicles.
Why a “smoke-free/tobacco-free” Campus? Snead State Community College is committed to providing a safe, healthy environment for its employees, students, community members, and visitors. The College has an obligation to provide a safe and healthy learning and work environment. Second-hand smoke can be the cause of asthma attacks, lung cancer, cardiovascular and other lung diseases. Every student, employee and visitor to our campus has the right to breathe clean air and not be exposed to the harmful effects of smoke and tobacco.
What do we consider “tobacco”? A “tobacco product” is defined to include any lighted or unlighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, bidi, clove cigarette, and any other smoking product, as well as smokeless or spit tobacco products, often known as dip, chew, or snuff, in any form.
Where can I smoke or use other tobacco products? As stated before, smoking or the use of any tobacco products is prohibited in any enclosed, indoor area of any building or other facility owned or operated by Snead State Community College.
Can I smoke in my car? The use of tobacco is prohibited on ALL property owned by Snead State Community College.
Caught Smoking on campus? Achieving a tobacco-free environment requires time and patience. Snead State Community College believes self-enforcement is an effective way to change this behavior and perception of students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus. It is the intent of Snead State Community College to emphasize the value of and to encourage all individuals, both smokers and non-smokers, to cooperatively work together in implementing and complying with this policy.
Snead State will host the Marshall County Career Expo and Hiring Fair on Tuesday, April 7, from 1-4 p.m. in the gym. It is open to the community for students, job-seekers and anyone who is interested. There is no charge to attend. The expo is not only designed to give attendees an idea about what employment options are available but to provide a meeting ground for job-seekers and employers in the community as well.
