The Florida A&M University curfew has been lifted effective immediately, Thursday, April 1, since the positivity rate has declined to a manageably low level.
To continue our battle against the pandemic, students are urged to take advantage of the free on campus vaccination site at the Lawson Center. Beginning Monday, April 5, residents 18 and over are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The site, which offers doses of the Moderna vaccine, is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days each week. Those visiting the site are asked to bring an ID to verify their date of birth.
Meanwhile, students should continue to adhere to our Emergency Procedure Guidelines that consist of the following:
- Wear a facial mask
- Practice social distancing
- Practice good hygiene
- Submit to a digital thermometer when entering offices
- Must notify Student Health and stay in the residence if having symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
The restrictions on campus gatherings have been expanded to 30 participants with appropriate mask wearing and social distancing.
Violation of any of FAMU’s Emergency Procedures is considered an offense in the Student Code of Conduct with penalties that can lead to suspension from the University.
As part of an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19, the University requests students, faculty and staff to take the self-assessment on the FAMU app before arriving on campus or attending class daily and adhere to the relevant testing schedule.
We would like to thank students, parents, staff and faculty for adhering to our Emergency Procedures and for continuing to “Protect the FAMUly.” We will remain diligent in our efforts to combat the spread of the virus on our campus and will keep all stakeholders informed of our success.
