With the health and safety of the Seminole State community as our top priority, the College is implementing its plan for a phased reopening for Fall Term 2020.
The health of our college community is our highest priority. College leaders are monitoring the situation and are taking proactive steps for protection and prevention. The College also has emergency operations plans and a procedure for communicable diseases already in place.

Seminole County Mask/Face Covering Order
Seminole County has enacted an executive order requiring every person working, living, visiting or doing business in Seminole County to wear a mask or face covering consistent with the current CDC guidelines while at all businesses, places of assembly and other places open to the public in Seminole County. The executive order is effective as of Wednesday, July 1.
The order defines a face covering as "a uniform piece of material that securely covers a person's nose and mouth and remains affixed in place without the use of one's hands, whether store bought or homemade, concurrent with CDC guidelines."
According to the order, a mask or face covering is not required at outdoor businesses, places of assembly and other places open to the public if social distancing, can be accomplished. The order also outlines exceptions for certain individuals, including those younger than age 2 and those for whom a face covering would cause impairment due to an existing health condition or disability. Other details and exceptions are outlined in the order.

COVID Tracker Disclaimer
Seminole State asks students, faculty and staff to self-report any positive COVID-19 tests to the College, whether or not you have been, or plan to be, on our campuses. The numbers reflect the total number of positive employee and student COVID-19 tests reported during the posted time frame. If an employee or student does not report that they tested positive, the College would not know about the case, and it would not be included in the total. Numbers will be updated on a weekly basis.
