UFF-UF Letter to President Fuchs Regarding Masks

The reason I am writing this additional communication is that I have already received this evening dozens of messages from faculty, students, and members of the community–many of which I’m sure you are receiving as well–calling on UF to implement an indoor masking policy immediately. I am urging you President Fuchs to follow the recommendation of the Alachua County Commission and require the wearing of masks indoors. The membership of the United Faculty of Florida, UF is 100% in support of this policy (a remarkable consensus for faculty on any issue!) and I would be remiss in my duties as a union president if I did not share this information with you.” – Paul Ortiz, UFF-UF Chapter President
