Thank you for your continued diligence in keeping our community as safe as possible during the most recent COVID-19 wave that has fortunately declined in our area and on campus. After consultation with medical experts, the campus will be mask optional in all places except for classrooms, labs, and performance spaces. After Spring Break on March 14, all of campus will be mask optional if conditions remain as they are now or further decrease.
As part of FSC’s Cornerstone of respecting all people on the campus, we ask that if someone wishes to continue to mask that you show that person the utmost respect. In addition, if a member of our community asks you to mask for their safety, please comply. For example, a person may be at high risk, or have a family member at high risk, and every person deserves the respect of us masking without further explanation.
COVID-19 has come in waves, and at some point, we may need to reinstitute masking and other measures to protect our community.
We will all be exuberant when we can treat COVID-19 as an endemic virus. Some believe we are at that point, and some do not. We will continue to be vigilant if other waves necessitate a different protocol.
Please be respectful of ANYONE who asks you to wear a mask in their presence. We are Mocs, and we respect one another.
