When May You Return to Campus After COVID Illness or Close Contact?

Tuesday,  August 25, 2020

Based on new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the exposure and infectious period, Valencia College has implemented a new symptom- and time-based approach as opposed to our former test-based approach to determine when employees or students who are affected by COVID-19 may return to campus. This updates the requirement for negative testing and medical clearance in lieu of a time-based approach while monitoring symptoms to be consistent with current medical guidance.
