Florida State University will resume normal, pre-pandemic operations effective Aug. 1, 2021

A few public health and safety protocols remain for student organizations and some specific events including residence hall move-in. Masks are recommended but not required on campus except in designated healthcare locations.

Classes will return to predominately face-to-face instruction and indoor space limitations will be discontinued. A small percentage of designated courses will continue online as offered prior to the pandemic.

Employees will return to pre-pandemic work locations and schedules.

Full vaccination against COVID-19 is strongly recommended for all students, faculty, staff and visitors.  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.

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

Thank you for your cooperation, and #StayHeathyFSU!
