To view face covering pick-up locations, dates and times, visit the Face Covering Distribution webpage. Students must have a valid UWF ID to pick-up their face coverings. For students who have not yet received a valid UWF ID, please contact the Nautilus Card office to make an appointment to obtain your ID.

UWF Housing and Residence Life will provide face coverings to residential students during the move-in process in August.

Faculty and Staff: Face coverings for faculty and staff are available through each division’s COVID-19 Logistics Liaison. For a list of liaisons, visit the Return to Campus Resources webpage.

Face Covering Requirements
A disposable or cloth face covering is required at UWF inside all shared indoor spaces and in outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.

  • Examples of shared indoor spaces include classrooms, laboratories, hallways, shared offices, open offices, restrooms, conference rooms, lobbies and lounge areas, retail spaces, museums, libraries and dining facilities. Anyone using a dining facility should cover their face until they sit down to eat and then put the face covering back on immediately after.
  • Face coverings may be removed when inside of private building space, such as a single-use office or residence hall room.
