June 9, 2021 - PHSC Students, Faculty and Staff

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, PHSC has adhered to and implemented guidelines and recommendations set for by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The College’s adherence to the recommended practices has minimized the spread of the virus on our campuses. During the past few weeks, according to the CDC, the number of vaccinated citizens has increased in communities throughout the nation, and they have indicated a decrease in the positivity rates (3% or less) of individuals tested. Consequently, the CDC has recommended the wearing of face coverings to be optional (indoors or outdoors) for individuals who have been fully vaccinated.

Effective immediately, PHSC will follow the CDC recommendation of optional face mask wearing (inside or outside) for fully vaccinated employees, students, or individuals who visit our campuses. Relative protocols (social distancing, especially for non-vaccinated individuals) and the continuous practices that will help ensure the safety of students and employees on all of our campuses are encouraged. PHSC will continue to monitor and review guidelines presented by the CDC, our local health agencies, and the Florida Department of Education.
