Wear a Mask!
- Students, whether vaccinated or not, are required to wear face coverings inside all campus buildings and facilities, including, but not limited to classrooms, common workspaces, elevators, hallways, restrooms, break rooms and when others are present in the employee's workspace.
- Facial coverings should also be worn in Residence Hall entrances, corridors, hallways, elevators, and shared public spaces such as lounges, lobbies, and laundry rooms unless otherwise posted. While in the residential setting, facial coverings should also be worn when interacting with anyone outside of your regular room, suite, or apartment unit.
- Failure to wear a facial covering while inside campus buildings and facilities is a violation of the FSU Covid-19 Guidelines and may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
- At this time, face coverings are not required in outdoor spaces for fully vaccinated individuals, but they are encouraged, especially when participating in any type of group event or gathering.
Don’t Wait to Vaccinate.
7 Facts You Should Know About the Vaccine
(adapted from this source)
- No serious side effects were reported in clinical trials. Temporary reactions after receiving the vaccine may include a sore arm, headache, feeling tired and achy for a day or two or, in some cases, fever. In most cases, these reactions are good signs that your body is building protection. More information.
- Scientists had a head start. They are built on decades of research on vaccines for similar viruses. A big investment of resources and focus made sure they were created without skipping any steps in development, testing, or clinical trials. More information.
- You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. The vaccine gives your body instructions to make a protein that safely teaches you to make germ-fighting antibodies to fight the real COVID-19. More information.
- The vaccine protects against the Delta variant. The Delta variant, which is now predominant in North Carolina, is much more contagious than the original virus. Vaccines continue to be remarkably effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, even against the Delta variant. More information.
- A hundred million people in the U.S. have already received their COVID-19 vaccine. More information.
- It works. And once you're fully vaccinated you're protected. The vaccines are proven to help prevent COVID-19 and are effective in preventing hospitalization and death. More information.
- The vaccine does not affect fertility. Vaccination for those who are pregnant or wanting to become pregnant is recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists(ACOG), the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology.
