Disposable masks will be provided to building liaisons for distribution upon request, and more information will be shared with those individuals in the coming weeks.
Are face coverings required?
Our expectation is that students, faculty and staff wear masks while indoors, in line with CDC guidance and with Florida’s State University System and to help protect our campus community. However, neither the university nor individual faculty and staff members may require individuals to wear masks if they choose not to do so. The exception to this involves health-care facilities such as the Student Health Center, UCF Health, and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), which still require face coverings inside their buildings. Additionally, as a simulated clinical environment, the Clinical Skills and Simulation Center at the College of Medicine also requires face coverings.
Can a member of the UCF community on their own require others to wear face coverings in their classroom or office?
No member of the UCF community is permitted to require any other member of the UCF community to wear a face covering on campus, whether in an office, classroom or other location. You may encourage others to wear face coverings, but you may not require them to do so.
Do I need to immediately return to UCF to obtain my face covering?
No. UCF has ordered enough face coverings for all students and faculty and staff members, and they will be available throughout the summer and fall semesters.
How do I obtain a UCF ID card to receive my face covering?
UCF Card Services is open for students and employees in need of a new or replacement UCF Card.
New students who have not yet received their UCF ID will receive their face covering in conjunction with distribution of their UCF Cards later this summer.
How do I wash the face covering?
It is recommended that the face coverings are washed by hand with mild liquid detergent after each day’s use and then hung dry.
