Policy on Covid: It is the policy of FSU for the Fall 2020 semester that all students are required to engage in safe behaviors to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Such behaviors specifically include the requirement that all students wear a mask while in classrooms or labs and in other instances where social distancing is not possible, unless (a) a student is granted an accommodation from Disability Services, or (b) I otherwise explicitly grant permission to a student to remove their mask (such as while asking a question, participating in class discussion, or giving a presentation, all while at an appropriate physical distance from others). Students who do not have masks can obtain them from the building coordinator. Failure to comply with this policy in the classroom may result in dismissal from the current class session and charges under the Code of Student Responsibility.
