August 2, 2021 - PHSC Students, Faculty and Staff

Florida is experiencing a dramatic spike in COVID-19 cases linked to the Delta variant of the virus. New evidence indicates that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can spread the virus. Reportedly, while vaccinated individuals can acquire COVID-19, symptoms are mild and rarely lead to severe illness, hospitalization or death.

"In compliance with CDC recommendation, all PHSC employees, students and visitors must wear masks indoors at all PHSC facilities beginning ASAP or no later than start of day tomorrow morning, Tuesday, August 3," said Dr. Beard. The mask mandate applies in classrooms and during all indoor College-hosted activities, whether held on or off PHSC campuses and facilities. At this time, masks are not required outdoors. However, social distancing rules according to CDC guidelines will remain in effect inside and outdoors at all PHSC locations.

"While proof of vaccination will not be required, I urge all employees and students to receive vaccinations as soon as possible to help curb the alarming rate of COVID-19 cases within our district. Vaccinations are free, readily available and can protect our colleagues, neighbors and family from this devastating disease. An updated, more detailed College COVID-19 plan will be circulated and posted on PHSC’s website and intranet later this week. Please take every precaution, including washing your hands frequently and thoroughly, to protect the health of our college community," said Dr. Beard.

As a reminder, the College Store at all campuses offers a selection of discounted masks for your convenience.
