Campus Visitor "Florida Tech Safe" Commitment

Starting August 14, 2020.

Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech) has taken extraordinary steps to protect the health and well-being of all members of the university community during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the exact methods of spread and contraction of the coronavirus are poorly understood, and there is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19.  Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness.

Despite the social distancing, sanitization, and other steps taken by Florida Tech to foster the health of all students, faculty, staff, and university visitors, COVID-19 is a widespread virus, and due to its general spread within the community, there is a potential risk of exposure to the student body, employees, and general population. 

Florida Tech cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while on its premises or participating in its educational or other activities.  It is impossible to guarantee that the disease is not present.  Therefore, if you choose to utilize Florida Tech’s services or enter onto the university’s premises, please know that you may be exposing yourself to COVID-19 and are agreeing to assume this risk.

Understanding these difficult circumstances, as a Visitor on the Florida Tech campus, I commit to the following:

  • I will monitor my temperature, overall health and participate in any screenings to determine whether it is appropriate for me to be moving about campus.
  • If I have a change in my health status, I will follow the reporting protocol requirements and provide accurate and complete information.
  • I will not enter or remain on the Florida Tech campus if I am sick with COVID-19 symptoms or know that I have been exposed to someone who was tested positive for COVID-19.
  • I will adhere to the guidelines for wearing a face covering (or mask) when required.
  • I will practice proper handwashing and respiratory etiquette (e.g., covering my cough).
  • Recognizing that some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus, I will take daily precautions to keep space between myself and others (6 feet of physical distancing).
