Taking personal responsibility, caring for one another are critical to prevent further spread
As more faculty, staff and students have begun to return to campus and university facilities, life may begin to feel a bit more “normal” than it has in a while. But especially in light of news of an increase in cases in Alachua County and around the state in recent days, it’s critically important to remain vigilant and to continue to follow the same best practices that helped us flatten the curve during the spring.
Remember that by following these practices, you are not only taking responsibility for your own wellbeing, but you are also helping to care for your colleagues and loved ones. Please continue to:
- Wear a face covering or mask indoors and outdoors when a six-foot distance from others is not possible; this is now university policy
- Continue to physically distance yourself from others at work and in public gatherings
- Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
- Avoid touching your face
- Stay home and away from others if you are feeling unwell
If you find yourself experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please be sure to reach out to your primary care physician. For more information and updates, please visit the UF Health Screen, Test & Protect website.
