Statement of Solidarity

We at CAPS stand in solidarity with all members of our Asian community against any form of xenophobia, oppression, and racism. We write to affirm our support for the dignity of all our Asian community members.  CAPS is with you and stands alongside you.  We share a collective responsibility to speak out against racism and social injustice that aims at dividing our communities. We are committed to speaking up, listening, and providing confidential support for all our Asian community members and allies to foster empowerment and resilience.  We want to invite anyone who is being impacted by this or other challenging current events to come to CAPS for support,  or to use our after hours hotline/ crisis line for support at 407-823-2811 (press 5 afterhours).

*****If you are sick with Covid-19*******

CAPS values your well-being. If you are feeling sick, please seek medical attention at UCF SHS or urgent care. Your health is our priority. We know this is a stressful time. Any student or employee who tests positive for COVID-19, regardless of whether they have been on any of UCF’s campuses, must call the COVID Line, 407-823-2509 to initiate the contact-tracing process, which helps to identify potential exposures and prevent additional spread. You must continue to take these steps, including completing the regular symptom screening using the COVID Self-Checker prior to arriving at any of UCF’s campuses. If you feel sick, even with only mild symptoms such as a headache, cough or low-grade fever, do not come to work or class. Stay away from others and monitor your symptoms, and contact your healthcare provider if they get worse.
