Weekly COVID-19 Updates

May 7, 2021

April 30, 2021

  • With three COVID-19 vaccines currently available and highly effective, UCF strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated. Vaccines are conveniently offered at no cost at numerous community providers across the state.
  • Thank you to the nearly 6,000 students who returned to the Student Union this week to receive their second dose of the vaccine from UCF. We appreciate you Armoring Up!
  • Updated guidance from the CDC states that those who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask while walking, running, hiking or biking alone or while outdoors in small gatherings. Masks are still necessary for those who have not yet been fully vaccinated and in crowded outdoor venues, such as sports stadiums and concert venues.
  • Even those who are fully vaccinated must fill out and submit the COVID Self-Checker available in the UCF Mobile app or online before you arrive on campus. We must also continue other COVID-19 precautions even after we are fully vaccinated to protect those who have not yet received their vaccine.

April 23, 2021

  • Students who received their COVID-19 vaccine at UCF earlier this month should have scheduled an appointment to receive their second dose at the Student Union next week.
  • No-cost vaccines are readily available by appointment or walk-up at numerous pharmacies, grocery stores and community providers. UCF strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated.
  • Anyone coming to campus — even those fully vaccinated — should fill out the COVID Self-Checker available in the UCF Mobile app or online before you arrive. We must also continue other COVID-19 precautions even after we are fully vaccinated to protect those who have not yet received their vaccine.
  • As we Charge On through the final weeks of the spring semester, there are many resources available to support students and help them de-stress during this time.
