Florida Tech has announced details of its plan to return to in-person instruction in the fall.

According to a press release from the school, public access to the campus will be limited, employees will undergo health screenings and students will be given face coverings as part of the plan.

Students that leave for Thanksgiving break will have the option of finishing the semester remotely, including final exams, though they will be encouraged to stay, the school said in the release.

The school's fall break on Oct. 12-13 has been canceled with classes now scheduled to be hosted on those days. Two additional days for studying prior to exams have been added to the end of the semester.

Attendance in classroom settings will also be capped to ensure social distancing. Additional sections will be added and classrooms will be formatted to allow for remote attendance should that prove to be necessary.

Additionally, the school also adds that it will be implementing a one student/one-bedroom policy for campus housing.

Plexiglass barriers will be installed in areas that are highly trafficked and facilities campus-wide will continue to have increased safety cleanings.

“We take the health and safety of all of our students, faculty and staff very seriously, and our plans will remain flexible depending on the situation this fall,”  said Florida Tech president Dwayne McCay in the release. “Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you in August.”
