COVID-19: What You Need to Know


In keeping with guidance from the CDC, masks are not required in indoor public spaces unless you have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or are recovering. Individuals exposed to COVID-19 or recovering should plan to wear a mask for five days when around others to minimize the risk of spreading the virus.

As part of FSC's Cornerstone, we ask that you show the utmost respect if someone wishes to continue to wear a mask. You should also be prepared to mask up if a community member asks you to do so for their safety.

At times of increased cases, masks may also be strongly encouraged indoors by the College to limit the spread of the virus.


All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to stay up-to-date with the COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccines are readily available at no cost. To find a COVID-19 vaccination site near you, visit or call 800.232.0233.

Find a Vaccine


COVID-19 testing remains available at the Student Health Center on an "as need" basis. Individuals exposed to COVID-19 should test on the fifth day after their last known exposure or immediately if they develop symptoms.

Symptomatic Individuals

Regardless of vaccination status, students who are sick with COVID-19 (have illness symptoms) should stay home until after 24 hours without symptoms including fever or as recommended by their physician.

We recommend that all students have a plan should they need to self-isolate. Residential students are welcome to email with any questions regarding self-isolation.

College faculty and staff: See the FSC Portal for current guidance.


As with any absence from class, all students are responsible for communicating with faculty, making arrangements to complete assignments, and keeping pace in their courses.

Campus Events

There are no specific restrictions on student gatherings or other events at this time.


There are no restrictions on visitors in campus buildings at this time, but they must adhere to all relevant COVID-19 guidelines and Community Living policies.

Maintaining a Cleaner Campus

FSC's custodial staff sanitizes public spaces frequently and thoroughly. High-touch surfaces, including light switches, door push plates, door handles, handrails, elevator buttons, tables, desks, countertops, hard-surface chairs, water fountains, sinks, and toilets, are sanitized daily. Wall moldings, windowsills, and trash receptacles are cleaned as needed. Staff maintains common areas of residence halls on a regular schedule.
