Flagler College announces plan to return to on-campus instruction in August
May 28, 2020
Flagler College is developing plans to bring students back for face-to-face classes on campus this fall with a COVID-19 mitigation plan in place to ensure a healthy campus environment.
The College has created two task forces that are preparing for how the college can resume operations and return to on-campus classes with the addition of safety measures and social distancing. These plans will follow all guidance from the State of Florida and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.
Flagler College President Joseph G. Joyner has made it a priority to develop contingency plans in all areas of the College including cleaning and disinfecting, proper social distancing, academic offerings, residential life, staff and faculty safety, technology and numerous other areas impacted by the coronavirus.
"It is our intention to open in the fall as planned,” he said. “We are well into the planning with these task forces, as transitioning back needs to be done correctly and safely, both for the summer and next fall. We have begun preparations for the next phases, and are looking at all contingencies that we may face.”
He said because developments change daily and there are no guarantees when dealing with coronavirus, the college must plan carefully for all eventualities as it looks forward, including a possible resurgence of the virus in the fall.Tagged As
