Frequently Asked Questions

Am I required to return to campus fully vaccinated?
We strongly encourage all new and returning students to arrive on campus fully vaccinated with an FDA-or WHO-approved vaccine.

Am I required to provide proof of a vaccine?
If you have received a vaccine, we ask that you voluntarily upload your information, including a photo of your CDC vaccination card in FoxLink. Only health professionals will have access to this information. If you have been vaccinated on campus, your data will upload automatically, so there is no need for you to self-report.

What is the benefit of providing my vaccination status?
Providing documentation of your vaccination status will provide you with the following benefits:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals will NOT be required to quarantine for 10 days if they are directly exposed.
  • Fully vaccinated individuals will be exempt from regular COVID testing on campus (see below).
  • We will follow CDC guidance and fully comply with Florida law, including Senate Bill (SB) 2006, signed into law by Governor DeSantis, which states that an educational institution may not require students to provide any documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination; we are asking you to do so voluntarily so we can track and assess vaccination coverage as a public health matter for the Rollins community.

What do I need to know about testing and contact tracing this fall?

  • Regular rapid COVID testing will be required for students who do not provide documentation of vaccination.
  • We will continue with contact tracing to identify anyone who has been directly exposed to COVID.
  • Anyone who contracts COVID will be isolated for 10 days.
  • Anyone who is not vaccinated and is directly exposed to COVID will be quarantined for 10 days.
  • For student-athletes, we will follow NCAA guidance, which currently exempts vaccinated athletes from testing.
  • To follow the ever-changing viral variants, we continue to work with Biobot to test residential hall wastewater effluent. This will allow us to align our COVID mitigation strategies with what is known about the different variants of the virus.

What should I expect in the classroom?

  • Based on current CDC guidance, we will be teaching in classrooms with 3-foot distancing between students.
  • Most likely, we will continue to wear masks indoors until 80 percent of our community is vaccinated, but masks will not be required outdoors.
  • We will have one outdoor classroom available for teaching, behind the Rollins Museum of Art.
  • Our courses will be offered fully in-person.
  • Based on current conditions and CDC guidance, we will not offer a virtual learning option.
  • We will make limited accommodations for students who miss class due to illness or quarantine.
