The following guidelines and expectations are a part of the overall Florida State University Fall 2020 Plan. As stated in the plan, our goal is to provide a healthy and safe environment for all members of the university community. To help ensure this goal is met, students will be required to adhere to the guidelines and expectations outlined in the plan and the Guidelines for Events and Gatherings. We each play a role in our community's effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Recognizing this reality is crucial to preserve the level of instruction and campus life we want to offer. Although it is our aim to take an educational and proactive approach, noncompliance with guidelines or expectations may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
Because circumstances are fluid, there may be updates to these guidelines and expectations. These changes will be included in updated versions of this document and will be communicated to the university community as applicable. Below is a summary of guidelines and expectations. Refer to Stay Healthy FSU to see the requirements in their entirety.
Participating in a daily wellness check supports the overall health and wellness of the Florida State community. All students should complete the Daily Wellness Check Tool in the MyFSU MobileApp or portal each day before coming to campus or leaving their residence hall. The Daily Wellness Check Tool asks if you have experienced symptoms or if you have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual. Students who pass the wellness check can move about campus, observing social distancing guidelines and wearing a face covering. Some campus venues including the Leach Center, Fitness and Movement Clinic, and FSU Libraries, among others, may require students to show they passed their daily wellness check. Students who do not pass the wellness check are highly encouraged to follow the instructions provided on the MobileApp.
Because the University prioritizes the health and safety of our community during this public health emergency, any information reported to the University for purposes of contact assessment and exposure mitigation will not result in an individual student or student organization being charged with a violation of University policy if the student or organization cooperates fully and truthfully with the University or public health official.
