CAC continues with e-learning/home learning for all students until further notice. CAC's campus is closed to all visitors, and all community campus access hours have been suspended. Thank you for your support and understanding in keeping our communities safe.
The CAC libraries want to contribute to the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and will therefore be closed to the community. However, we also want to encourage reading during this time and so we are implementing a "curbside delivery" system starting Sunday, March 29.
Please see this document for instructions..

It can take up to 14 days for symptoms of coronavirus to appear.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a cough
shortness of breath
fever (high temperature)
For most people who have these symptoms now, it is much more likely to be an infection that is not coronavirus.
Phone a doctor only if you have symptoms and any of the following apply to you:
- they are the type of symptoms you would usually contact a GP about
you have travelled from an affected area
you are a close contact of a confirmed case
Close contact can mean:
- spending more than 15 minutes face-to-face contact within 2 metres of an infected person
living in the same house or shared accommodation as an infected person
This is a guide only.
Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus who has been in close contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days should:
- isolate themselves from other people - this means going into a different, well-ventilated room alone, with a phone.
phone their medical practitioner, or emergency department in a medical emergency (if you have severe symptoms)
phone 123 here in Egypt for an ambulance.
You will need to be tested for coronavirus if you have symptoms and have in the last 14 days been:
- in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus
to a place where there is spread of coronavirus
If your doctor thinks that you need a test for coronavirus, they will tell you where the test will be done. They will also tell you when to expect your results.
Follow this advice to protect yourself and others from coronavirus.
Wash your hands properly and often.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough and sneeze.
Put used tissues into a bin and wash your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Avoid close contact with people who are not well.
Follow the travel advice issued by WHO and CDC.
Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
