Keiser University continues to monitor the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, all Keiser University campuses are in operation. We currently ask that our Keiser University students, faculty and staff practice social distancing when possible and adhere to guidelines provided by the CDC. As a continued safety measure, we are continuing our current protocols regarding masks. Masks are optional in campus building(s) for fully vaccinated individuals. Those not fully vaccinated are required to continue wearing masks. All campuses locations have re-implemented temperature checks as a precautionary measure to help mitigate risk. The school is following recommended guidelines provided by the Florida Department of Health and the CDC and taking necessary precautions to protect our Keiser University community.
We believe it is in the best interest of our students that all campuses operate as currently scheduled unless specific circumstances require immediate action.
Please contact your campus President if you become aware of a specific Coronavirus threat and follow up with your healthcare provider.
For information about student internships at medical facilities, please contact your campus Dean.
The well-being of our current and new students, faculty, staff and campus visitors remains our top priority. We remain committed to your educational success and look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future.
If a threat is identified and a campus is forced to cancel on-ground classes, all classroom instruction will transition to Blackboard, Keiser University’s online platform and learning management system. Blackboard can be accessed through a computer at the link below, or via tablet or smart phone by downloading the app for iOS, Android, and Windows.

As we continue to monitor closely the emergence of the COVID-19 and given the uncertainty of the virus, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address a number of business concerns. First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage and/or adopt practices protecting the health of employees, students, visitors or others.
The University will continue to provide alcohol-based hand sanitizers throughout the workplace and in common areas. Cleaning sprays and wipes will also be available to clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as telephones and keyboards.
Employees are encouraged to use telephone and video conferencing instead of face-to-face meetings as much as possible during this outbreak. Support services are available to employees who need assistance with this technology.
It is critical that employees do not report to work while they are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue. Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that employees remain at home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100 degrees F or 37.8 degrees C) or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications. Many times, with the best of intentions, employees report to work even though they feel ill. We provide Paid time off (PTO) and Personal time off (Faculty) to compensate employees who are unable to work due to illness. Employees who report to work ill will be sent home in accordance with these health guidelines.
Should an employee find themselves in a self-quarantine predicament the University is prepared to handle as follows:
Please note all other illnesses should follow our standard practices as addressed in the employee handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Campus President and/or Manager.
