Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Updated: September 8, 2023
New variants of COVID-19 are now appearing in the US, as such we are experiencing an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases. Fortunately, due to vaccination protocols and previous COVID 19 infections, immunity levels have increased. As a result, deaths and severe illness are rare.
Palm Beach State College would like to remind you that If you’re sick or exhibiting symptoms of ANY illness, including COVID 19, you should stay home, look after your well-being, and get better. Staying well hydrated, well rested, and getting plenty of fresh air are still some of the best ways to avoid illness. Frequent hand washing, supplemental disinfection of workspaces, and respecting social distancing continue to be part of a healthy lifestyle to prevent illness.
Your Mask Your Choice:
Palm Beach State College does not mandate the wearing of Masks on its college campuses. The choice to wear a mask is left up to the individual.
The College further recommend that you continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines as it relates to COVID 19.

Lake Worth Campus Updates
Portions of 6th Avenue to close beginning in March
Updated: April 4, 2023
Palm Beach State College has been advised by local officials that sections of 6th Avenue in Lake Worth will be closed beginning in March that could impact your daily commute or visits to the campus.
March 13 through August: Sixth Avenue will be closed from Grove Street (just east of the Lake Osborne Church) to Congress Avenue for bridge replacement work. The closure is a necessary safety precaution for crane operators and other construction crews working on enhancements to the road, as well as the public. It also will allow construction crews to accelerate the project. Please plan to use other routes to the campus. East and west bound traffic will be detoured via S. Congress Avenue, Lake Worth Road (S.R. 802)/Lake Ave/Lucerne Ave and S. Dixie Highway (U.S. 1). Access to Interstate 95 north of 6th Avenue South will be detoured via S. Congress Avenue and 10th Avenue North. Access to Interstate 95 south of 6th Avenue South will be detoured via S. Congress Avenue and Lantana Road. The 6th Avenue South Interstate 95 ramps will remain open, and traffic east of Interstate 95 will remain unaffected.
The exact date in August for the reopening of 6th Avenue has not yet been determined. The construction project includes raising the bridge by five feet, upgraded traffic signals, sidewalk improvements and installation of bike lanes.
