All of us at the University of Florida have an obligation to each do our part to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.  It is the right thing to do — and medical experts say vaccination and masking are the best ways to do it. Therefore, we are advising you of the following steps we are taking in our efforts to ensure a safe and successful live course. Effective immediately, in light of new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is expected that everyone will wear a mask at all times when inside any UF facility, even if you are vaccinated. This includes students, faculty, staff, vendors and visitors. Recent studies and guidance from the CDC state that both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals can transmit the current COVID-19 variant to unvaccinated persons.
