FRCC COVID-19 Updates

What to Expect for Spring Semester

FRCC is working hard to create maintain a safe environment for on-campus classes and services. To do this, we need your help!  Please follow the rules below to help us all have a great semester.

  1. COVID Testing/Vaccine Protocol
    • All on-campus students and staff must choose to either submit COVID vaccination information or complete weeking testing for COVID.
      • If you have recently received your vaccination, you may submit a copy of your card here >
      • If you don't submit your vaccination record, you will begin to receive emails explaining how to submit test results (usually delivered Monday mornings). If you have any questions, please contact
    • Students who choose testing will start uploading test results the week of January 17. Watch for an email from with further instructions. Get detailed Testing Procedure information >
    • For students and staff who opt into weekly testing, FRCC will have rapid nasal testing on campus. The tests will be self-administered and monitored by a third party. Get details and testing schedules >

  2.  Masks/Face Coverings. As in the past few semesters, all students and employees must wear a face covering that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times unless they are alone in a private office. Mask requirement details >

  3. If You Get COVID:
    • Please report your positive test right away using this form.
    • Please stay home and wait for a contact from FRCC staff.
    • You can expect to be away from school for at least five days. We will be following the new CDC guidance for employees and students who test positive or are exposed to COVID.
    • If you've recently tested positive and would like to be considered for a ninety-day exemption from weekly testing please complete this form.

  4. If You Are Sick:
    • Please do not come to campus if you have any illness, and especially any cold symptoms (headache, fever, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or cough). The Omicron variant often produces symptoms that are quite like a common cold.
    • If you do have symptoms, please get tested.  You can return if the test is negative or your fever is gone and your symptoms have subsided.

  5. Consider getting a vaccine booster. Boosters significantly decrease the risk of you contracting or spreading the Omicron variant of COVID.  Boosters are widely available. See options here >
