It depends. Per guidance from UF Health, consider whether employees in shared spaces have barriers between them that are at least 5.5 feet high from the floor, whether desks in adjacent spaces do not face each other, and whether the number of people in the room is limited enough to allow 6 feet between desks. If those criteria are all met then the people in the shared office/cubicle space may remove their mask while seated. They need to put on a mask if standing up or walking around in the area or common spaces.
Some water fountains and sinks will be available for filling water bottles. Signage will be displayed stating which fountains/sinks will be available for this purpose. Fountains will not be available for standard drinking practices.
The bathrooms in HPNP will allow for 2 occupants at a time as more people start returning to campus. It is important to always wear a mask when using the restroom.
PHHP is following the schedule for colleges in the Health Science Center to return to campus.
The protocols may change to reflect the flux of increasing (or decreasing) cases. We will continue to provide and update as policies change.
Per Executive Order number 20-82 from the Office of the Governor, all persons entering the state of Florida from an area with substantial community spread, including NY, NJ, and Connecticut, must isolate or quarantine for 14 days from the time of entry into the state. In addition, the CDC recommends that anyone returning from International Travel stay home for 14 days after return and monitor their health during that period.
