The real test to keep everyone safe at Florida Gulf Coast University starts Monday as students move back onto campus, and there are a number of changes because of COVID-19.
For example, student move-in days have been expanded from two days to four days, and students are limited to two helpers.
In an effort to “Protect the Nest,” the changes go beyond move-in day.
First, masks and social distancing will be required across campus. Courses will also be offered face to face, hybrid style, and online to meet different needs and concerns.
One of the biggest changes will be a daily health screening tool for students, faculty, and staff. It’s a mobile app and desktop-based and people must complete the questionnaire before coming to campus.
Users will have to answer a few short questions and the app will tell them if they pose a risk to others.
FGCU is also offering COVID testing for its students and faculty. The testing will not be open to the public.
