Following safety protocols and public health recommendations will help limit COVID-19 on our campuses, as well as in our local communities. Stay home if you are sick or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. Students and employees need to continue reporting to Student Health Services (561-297-3512, after hours select option 3) if experiencing COVID-19 or flu symptoms, are exposed to COVID-19 (even if out of the area) or test positive for COVID-19.
