Effective immediately, based on new CDC guidelines, face coverings are no longer required on FVCC campuses or in FVCC buildings for anyone who has been vaccinated.
The following are the current CDC Guidelines on Mask Wearing and Safe Activities:
If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.
Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
Per CDC guidelines, we recommend that unvaccinated individuals continue to wear face coverings when in close contact from others. Though face coverings are no longer required in most areas of campus, there may be situations where individuals feel more comfortable wearing a mask.
Consider wearing masks as a precaution when returning to campus from out-of-area travel, if you’ve recently attended a large event, or if there’s a possibility you've been exposed to COVID-19. For these reasons, keep a mask available in case you need one or someone requests that you wear one. Likewise, please respect the decisions of others to continue wearing masks if they choose to do so. They may be doing it to protect you!
