FSC Monitoring Coronavirus; Spring Break Trips Cancelled

Feb 27, 2020

by FSC Staff

To our Florida Southern community,

Nothing is more important to our College than the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.

That’s why we have been closely monitoring official updates from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Like many institutions around the country — especially those in higher education — Florida Southern is evaluating the appropriateness of regularly scheduled activities in light of Coronavirus developments.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled all College-related Spring Break trips. We do not take this step lightly and trust that all who are affected by this decision understand that health and safety are our primary focus.

What to Expect Next

College leadership will monitor the latest developments and recommendations from the CDC about the Coronavirus. Should further action be required, we will share decisions with you through official College email, website, and social media channels.

The CDC offers information about the Coronavirus, including how it spreads, symptoms, prevention tips, testing, frequently asked questions and more. This information is updated regularly and can be found at its website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Please be assured that Florida Southern’s commitment to the health and safety of our community will always be at the forefront of what we do.
