Healthy Saints Community
The Healthy Saints Community is a suite of initiatives to provide education on keeping our Saints and St. Johns County Community safe and healthy at this time.
The Flagler College community is committed to upholding our Core Values, including stewardship, which means an abiding and active care for one another. We all share a responsibility to preserving the health and well-being of everyone on campus and in the local community. The College’s reopening plans call for individual responsibility regarding hygiene and protective practices in order to create safe conditions for students and employees. Every individual of the campus community is responsible for following the recommended guidelines in order to keep our campus safe.
This pledge calls on all students, faculty, and staff to protect each other, the campus, and the St. Augustine community by: wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, following good hygiene and sanitization practices, monitoring personal health, following required health reporting protocols, avoiding large off-campus gatherings, not stigmatizing others, and other important steps.
All students, faculty, and staff are required to sign the pledge and follow the steps laid out in it.

Our Saints Community pledges to protect each other, our campus, and the local community, by wearing face masks.
Anyone who is on the Flagler College campus must wear a cloth facial covering unless they are in a private space. Students are instructed to bring at least three cloth face coverings when they return to campus in the fall.
Flagler College will follow the City of St. Augustine’s ordinance, RESOLUTION NO. 2020-22, Section 2, regarding face masks. This ordinance reads:
- Every person working, living, visiting, or doing business in the City of St. Augustine shall wear a face-covering in any indoor location, other than their home or residence, when not maintaining social distancing from other person(s), excluding family members or companions.
- Nothing herein shall require or allow a person to wear a face-covering so as to conceal the identity of the wearer in violation of Chapter 876, Florida Statutes.
- All businesses are encouraged to prohibit entry of any person who is not wearing a face-covering with the exception of those below-listed persons.
Proper Mask Care
Cloth face coverings should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use. Face masks should be stored in a paper bag; plastic bags retain moisture and create an environment to spread infectious material.
Cloth face coverings should:
- Fit snugly but comfortable against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Include multiple layers of fabric
- Allow for breathing without restriction
- Be able to be laundered and machine-dried without damage or change to shape
