COVID-19 Policies

Stetson University has established specific policy guidance, including its Face Covering Policy, based on many factors, including local and national COVID-19 trends, CDC recommendations, and vaccine availability, to safeguard our community members. The Safer Campus Task Force and university leadership continue to review and revise our health and safety protocols to ensure a balanced approach that maximizes individual liberty, while effectively protecting our campus family. Learn more at Safer Stetson's COVID-19 Policies webpage.

COVID-19 Tracking Dashboard (formerly Test Results)

The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and faculty is of paramount importance. Stetson will keep the community informed of positive cases of COVID-19 and current vaccination rates on its campuses throughout the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters to ensure transparency, raise awareness of health risks and improve decision-making. See the latest information.

What does Stetson do if someone is sick?

Stetson University has a detailed Health Response Protocol to respond to anyone in our community who shows signs of COVID-19. Stetson put an Infectious Disease Protocol in place in fall of 2019. We follow guidance from the Florida Department of Health (DOH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and American College Health Association (ACHA). Learn more.


Early identification of the virus allows Stetson to take swift action to support and isolate individuals and notify any contacts of potential exposure. Learn more on the COVID-19 Isolation page.

COVID-19 Student Isolation Guides

Stetson is supporting students in isolation in a variety of ways. As we have determined, once a student has learned their need to isolate, the process for what that will look like comes with many questions. Below you will find two guides tailored to support resident and commuter experiences. These guides are intended to be resources, providing information that supports you from the start of your isolation period through your clearance to your regular activities. Please know that our staff is here to provide continual support along the way.

Visit the COVID-19 Isolation page or DeLand FAQ pageIsolation category for additional information. Questions about testing or isolation should be directed to [email protected].  

COVID-19 Testing Options


On-Campus and Off-Campus Testing
Stetson University highly encourages community members to undergo regular COVID-19 testing to control the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the health of students, faculty and staff.

COVID-19 Gateway Testing

All community members, including undergraduate and graduate students, residential and commuters, students taking classes face-to-face or hybrid, and staff and faculty members participated in Stetson University's required Fall 2021 Gateway Campus Arrival process. Spring 2022 specific information will be available soon.

In Spring 2020, Stetson University adopted a tiered approach to promote a healthy environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional modifications based on the 70% university vaccination rate went into effect on Sept. 23, 2021.

In determining whether to shift Tiers and what mitigants can be loosened due to vaccination numbers, the university considers many factors including: the percentage of the Stetson community that has been vaccinated, community transmission rates, campus transmission rates, community positivity rates, and development of variants.
