FGCU Cases


Starting with the fall 2020 semester, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) is posting campus-related COVID-19 positive cases that have been reported. Earlier cases were reported by campus messages still available under “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates.”  In cases where an employee or student does not disclose a positive test, FGCU would not know about the case, and it would not be included in the posted information.

Positive cases are instructed to isolate in accordance with guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Student, employee and patient confidentiality laws prohibit disclosure of the identities of individuals with COVID-19. The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is the statutorily designated entity to conduct contact tracing for positive cases of COVID-19, including informing individuals with exposure per FDOH guidelines. In addition, FGCU’s new COVID-19 campus management system with case investigators is in place and working with cases.

If you test positive for COVID-19; are awaiting the result of a COVID-19 test; or are exposed to someone who is COVID-19 positive, please immediately update your FGCU Daily Health Screening app and follow the guidance provided.
