As always, to stop the spread of COVID-19, the university strongly encourages students to practice social distancing, follow UNF’s “Four Key Pillars of Shared Responsibility,” and monitor their health daily using the self-screening tool found on the SafeOspreys app or online. 

The University of North Florida’s “Four Key Pillars of Shared Responsibility” are:

  • Practicing social distancing at all times 
  • Wearing a mask in all indoor and outdoor areas when around others
  • Practicing proper personal hygiene 
  • Monitoring your health daily
