Re-entry Committee Update (Aug. 23, 2022)
As we begin the Fall 2022 semester, the FSU Re-entry Committee would like to share several updates with you relative to COVID-19.
If you are new to our University community, this committee was established in early 2020 to help students, faculty and staff safely navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic. As of late April 2022, we have remained in the post-surge recovery phase, and for that we are thankful. The committee held its final meeting of the spring semester on April 26 and was placed on reserve.
However, with COVID-19 still a reality, last week the Committee came back together to discuss what the fall semester would look like relative to COVID-19 health and safety. Please read the following information and updates below.
At the conclusion of the Spring 2022 semester, masks were no longer required in classrooms or other instructional spaces. This protocol remains. However, masks were and continue to be required in patient care areas such as the Pharmacy Care Clinic, the University Eye Center (masks are strongly encouraged for patients but not required unless exhibiting respiratory symptoms) and Birkam Health Center.
Masks can be requested through the Facilities – Plant Stores operation by key building custodians using the AiM system. Or, you can obtain masks from Human Resources, the Pharmacy Clinic or the David L. Eisler Center Information Desk. Masks for the KCAD campus are available at both building security desks. The University will continue to support all campus community members and visitors who choose to wear a mask while indoors on campus.
If You Feel Ill, Check Your Symptoms
If you are feeling ill, you are encouraged to use the new COVID-19 symptom checker on the CDC website. This site also provides clear details and information on what to do if you have or have been exposed to COVID-19.
