UCF COVID Policies

Many of you have been reporting to us that university COVID policies were confusing and contradictory especially when an instructional faculty or one (or more) of their students disclose they have tested positive for COVID. Exactly what we are to do to mitigate any negative health outcomes for ourselves or our students remained unclear. UCF has heard your complaints and our complaints about this. Notice that Interim Provost Michael Johnson has circulated a Faculty Guidance Page.


We have distributed N-95 masks with the cooperation of Academic Affairs. Those who were missed in this distribution we were able to cover since. If you did not receive one of your N-95 masks please let me know, or if a group of you have not, let me know the number of masks you need and we will get them to you ASAP. Remember we want to also cover adjuncts and Graduate Teaching Assistants so please include them in your count.
