Campus Health COVID-19

We continue to work on keeping school families up-to-date on the changing circumstances in our community. We commit to sharing information as it becomes available and as we determine the most appropriate campus response. Our campus response follows guidance from the University of Florida, the State of Florida, the Florida Department of Education and considers recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC.

COVID-19 Vaccinations are Strongly Encouraged
We continue to strongly encourage eligible members of the UF/P.K. Yonge community to be vaccinated. For local COVID-19 vaccine clinics, check Vaccine Availability.

Masks Welcome
Masks are welcome on the University of Florida/P.K. Yonge campus and we expresses support for members of the Blue Wave community who wish to continue to wear masks for their safety or the safety of others. We encourage all members of the community to be sensitive to and patient with the preferences of those around you. Please know that the university will continue to closely monitor the pandemic. Should the situation change, the university’s current approaches may be modified if deemed to be medically sensible.

Campus Response to Positive COVID-19 Diagnoses
P.K. Yonge has an established response to COVID-19 exposures and positive diagnoses on campus. Our original plan can be found here: COVID-19 Campus Response and updates and changes are posted at the links below. When changes to our COVID-19 campus response become necessary, families will be informed as soon as information becomes available. Questions?
