The Florida Board of Governors, the State University System’s governing board, has approved a broad blueprint for reopening the state’s public universities this fall. The blueprint stresses as a foundational priority the health and welfare of students, faculty, staff and others while giving individual universities flexibility in their reopening rules, procedures and guidelines. Under the blueprint, universities are developing their own reopening plans.
The University of Florida’s draft plan, which can be viewed here, outlines how UF will strive to create a safer, healthier campus environment and continue its research and education missions using screening and testing, enhanced protective measures, comprehensive communications and other tools.
We welcome input on the UF plan. Please send your comments to email@example.com.
The UF Board of Trustees will discuss the draft plan during its meeting on Thursday, June 4. The plan will be submitted to the Board of Governors by the June 12 deadline. It is expected the plan will continue to evolve as circumstances with COVID-19 evolve globally and locally.
