Daytona State College continues to evaluate current conditions and ensure a safe environment in which to learn. We are committed to following guidance from state and national health agencies. Accordingly we will be strategic in scheduling classes with small numbers of students and instructors, and will hold them in larger classrooms to provide for appropriate social distancing. For your safety, hand sanitizing stations have been installed in high-traffic areas and we will continue to sanitize classrooms, labs, offices, and other high-traffic, high-touch areas. We expect, request that you adhere to the College’s face mask and social distancing requirements as safety is our primary concern for you and those around you. Additional health and safety protocol will be provided as you register and upon your arrival to class or training event.
