When on campus or at a UWF location, all employees and students must continue following the below UWF COVID-19 Protocols:
- Complete the Daily COVID-19 Pre-screening – Employees must complete the daily pre-screening every working day regardless of remote or on-site, prior to visiting campus. Students must complete the pre-screening on a daily basis prior to visiting campus or leaving their residence hall room.
- Wear a face covering – When on campus or at a UWF location, a disposable or cloth face covering is required in all shared indoor spaces, as well as outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.
- Social distancing – When on campus or at a UWF location, practice social distancing by maintaining a distance of six feet from others when possible.
