Re-entry Committee Update (April 26, 2022)
We would like to thank everyone for supporting the FSU Re-entry Committee and the protocols established to keep the University safe and open during the COVID-19 pandemic. For several months now we have remained in the post-surge recovery phase, and for that we are thankful. Yesterday, this committee held its final meeting of the semester and is being placed on reserve. We are hopeful to remain this way but will re-assemble if COVID-19 conditions change.
With this news, the Committee will no longer share COVID-19 updates via email or maintain the University’s COVID-19 Dashboard. This will be replaced with a link to the CDC’s COVID-19 County Check tool. Faculty, staff and students are no longer required to report a positive COVID-19 test result in the University’s “Report a Positive Test” portal. The Coronavirus Updates Hub website will remain a resource for the University Community.
At the end of the spring semester, masks will no longer be required in instructional spaces such as classrooms and laboratories. It is anticipated that masks will still be required in patient care areas such as the Pharmacy Care Clinic, the University Eye Center and Birkam Health Center. The University will continue to support all campus community members and visitors who choose to wear a mask while indoors on campus.
