- Do I need to wear a mask while on campus?
At FIU, we continue to recommend the use of face coverings.
The CDC relaxed its indoor face covering recommendations, indicating that in areas of low to medium COVID-19 risk, people may choose not to use a face covering indoors. However, if you test positive or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or are immunocompromised, face coverings should be worn.
In addition, Gov. DeSantis has issued a new policy advising against the use of face coverings in businesses and community settings and suggesting a five-day isolation period for adults and children who test positive for COVID-19. In Miami-Dade County, Mayor Levine Cava announced that face coverings are no longer required indoors at county facilities, citing a significant decrease in COVID-19 positivity and hospitalization rates.
- Do I need to socially distance?
No. All classrooms, offices and other spaces have returned to pre-pandemic configurations.
- How can I find out how many COVID-19 positive cases there are at FIU?
FIU has created a COVID-19 dashboard that is updated weekly and reflects the university’s self-reported COVID-19 data.
A university epidemiologist monitors this data with respect to both trends and clusters (hotspots) of cases on FIU’s campuses.
- Does everyone still have to fill out the P3 app?
- Is FIU providing the COVID-19 vaccine?
Check our Vaccination page to learn more. Members of the FIU community should check their FIU email frequently for updates to FIU’s supply of available vaccines.
- Is FIU requiring that students, faculty and staff get vaccinated?
While we encourage everyone to get vaccinated, it is not a requirement at this time. If there is any change in policy, we will notify faculty and staff.
- Someone in my office (or classroom) tested positive for COVID-19. Why wasn’t I notified?
The answer to this question and many more regarding COVID-19 protocol and procedures can be found in the COVID-19 section of our website.
