  • FIT no longer requires face masks be worn in FIT buildings.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you should not come to class (students) or to work (employees). You may return five (5) days after a positive test or symptom onset. (The day you tested positive or noticed symptoms is considered Day 0, thus you may return to campus on Day 6.) If you continue to have symptoms after this time period, contact FIT Health Services or your physician for further guidance.
  • Students and employees, please refer to the Sept. 15 email communications for details on what to do if you think you may have the virus.
