Coronavirus Update

We are monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely and following UCF guidelines with the safety and security of our constituents and staff always our top priority. UCF CARD and PALS has protocols in place, including preventative measures, to prioritize the safety of our constituents throughout our counties. Our Autism Disorder Specialists and Facilitators are consistently taking additional precautionary measures and remaining vigilant.

As of Tuesday March 11, 2020, UCF will move to remote instruction effective Monday, March 16, to minimize health and safety risks to the UCF community, especially as students and faculty prepare to return from Spring Break.

Remote instruction will continue for at least two weeks. Because courses are being moved online, students should not come back to campus for the next two weeks. Fourteen days is the period in which secondary transmission to others is thought to be highest, and UCF advises against any additional travel during this time.

Students should stay at or return to their permanent residences. This means majority of our facilitators will not be available for programs/events.

It has become increasingly clear that social distancing is critical in preventing the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Social distancing means avoiding mass gatherings and settings with large amounts of people and maintaining distance from others when possible. For the safety of all constituents and facilitators PALS will be canceling all groups/meetups/programs, and events for at least 2 weeks and resume on April 1, 2020, unless otherwise noted.

Updates will be provided as needed. Emails will be forwarded to all persons signed up for events between March 12-March 31, 2020.  We will make attempts to offer anything we can remotely. Please look for continuous updates via the web site, Facebook and or emails.
