The health of our college community is our highest priority. College leaders continue to monitor the situation and take proactive steps for protection and prevention following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Florida Department of Health (FDOH) guidance. 

As we look forward to our "next normal" and completing our return to campus in Fall 2021, Seminole State is committed to providing accurate information and will share updates as needed. We encourage all members of our community to review and familiarize themselves with the Completing our Return plan.

Gov. DeSantis' Executive Orders 

Following the May 3 announcement of Executive Orders (EO-21-101 and EO-21-102) related to local COVID-19 ordinances, Seminole State received information from the Florida College System (FCS) Chancellor’s Office that EO-21-102 applies to city and county governments only and does not impact the FCS or K-12 institutions. EO-21-101 is applicable to the College and became effective July 1. Seminole State continues to follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health (FDOH). Employees, students and visitors can find updated guidance related to wearing masks/cloth face coverings, social distancing and other safety measures in the Completing our Return plan.  

Seminole County Mask/Face Coverings Order Update

Seminole County Executive Order 2021-020, requiring the use of social distancing and facial coverings was suspended as of Monday, May 3, 2021, in compliance with Gov. DeSantis' suspension of all local government mandates. As such, Seminole County no longer requires members of the public to wear facial coverings in public facilities, businesses, places of assembly, and locations providing personal services, such as salons and spas. 

The governor’s order does not prevent individual businesses from instituting measures such as physical distancing, mask use and temperature screenings; therefore, the requirements for face masks or other protocols may remain in place at local or national businesses. County residents are strongly encouraged to follow CDC guidance with respect to vaccinations, social distancing and mask use.
