The College is aware of the University of Central Florida’s relaxed mask guidance and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new mask guidance for fully vaccinated people. Valencia College’s Conditions to Reopen team is meeting and will consult our planning partner, Orlando Health, about the revised CDC guidance and discuss how to maintain a safe and healthy environment on our campuses. Updates to mask protocols will be shared in The Juice when available.
At this time, all employees, students and vendors on campus are required to wear face masks that cover the mouth and nose while indoors. Masks are also required outdoors if physical distancing is not possible. Employees working on campus are only permitted to remove their masks if working in an office alone, or while working outdoors and physically distanced. If an individual comes on site for work or classes and does not have a face mask, the College will provide one. Everyone should feel empowered to require masks be worn while in their presence.
Masks are required in University of Central Florida facilities located on Valencia College campuses, as well as in all Valencia College courses on the Downtown Campus. Valencia’s Downtown Campus classrooms have masks available for Valencia or UCF students who may not have one.
