UPDATE (3 p.m. Aug. 9, 2021): Effective Aug. 9, 2021, the Florida Board of Governors and Florida State University expect masks to be worn by all individuals in all FSU facilities. This includes all students, faculty, staff, vendors and visitors. Recent studies and guidance from the CDC state that both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals can transmit the COVID-19 variant to unvaccinated persons. We expect you to help mitigate the spread by wearing a mask. Thank you! #StayHealthyFSU

Florida State University resumes normal operations

Florida State University resumed normal, pre-pandemic operations Aug. 1, 2021. At this time, we are proceeding with our plans for the fall semester with face-to-face classes and in-person staffing to support the university’s academic mission.

Classes are returning to predominately face-to-face instruction in the Fall 2021 semester and indoor space limitations have been discontinued. A small percentage of designated courses are continuing online as offered prior to the pandemic.

Employees have returned to pre-pandemic work locations and schedules.

While our authority is limited by the State of Florida and the university cannot mandate vaccines, testing or mask wearing, we are promoting these mitigation efforts.

Masks are expected on campus and required in designated healthcare locations.

Full vaccination against COVID-19 is the best, most effective way to protect yourselves and others from getting COVID-19 and preventing disruption of your studies, social activities, teaching, research or work. All FSU students, faculty and staff are eligible for the vaccine. Those who choose not to be vaccinated are assuming significant risk of contracting COVID-19 and should be aware of the potential consequences, such as isolation and quarantine. Schedule a vaccination appointment at vaccine.fsu.edu.

Unvaccinated individuals who test positive or come in close contact with known COVID-19 cases will be required to quarantine at home 10 days for the safety of others.

Students who are directed to quarantine should consult the university’s class policies and course syllabi for guidance during their period of isolation.

FSU encourages all students, faculty and staff testing off-campus to self-report all positive COVID test results to FSU for timeliness of response and follow-up testing at FSU’s test center if necessary. Students, faculty and staff can use the Daily Wellness Check at my.fsu.edu or MyFSU app to submit their information confidentially. They can also report via email by submitting their information to COVID19@fsu.edu .

The university’s COVID-19 testingcontact tracing and vaccination programs will continue to offer services to the campus community through the fall semester.

Thank you for your cooperation, and #StayHeathyFSU!
