In accordance with guidance issued by the State University System, the University of Florida, and in response to the COVID-19 situation, the University of Florida Office of Professional and Workforce Development is rescheduling all of our face-to-face training courses. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 as well as guidance received by university officials and will provide updates on when we will again offer face-to-face training.
Taking Care of Yourself and Our Community
As with any virus, prevention is the key to protect both yourself and others by:
- Staying at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover
- Appropriately covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your flexed elbow
- Cleaning frequently touched surfaces daily or more often
- Washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer
The CDC website provides a wealth of additional information about preventing the spread of COVID-19, including guidelines for home, school and work. The university is also making precautionary plans in the event of a more serious outbreak, and a UF COVID-19 Updates Website has been established to provide regular news and updates
