Florida A&M University April 8, 2020, Coronavirus Advisory
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued recommendations regarding the use of cloth face coverings in public settings. Although essential employees are not required to wear face coverings unless their responsibilities may bring them in contact with potential COVID-19 cases, face coverings are recommended in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Employees, such as police officers, select Plant Operations staff and clinic personnel, whose jobs carry a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19, have received additional training and testing and have been provided with appropriate personal protective equipment.
Students, faculty and staff should review the CDC guidance for wearing cloth face coverings in public settings. Visit the CDC website for more information and to see a video on how to create adequate face coverings. The health and safety of our entire community remains FAMU’s highest priority.
