Doing Our Part
Our Shenandoah community is known for its care and compassion. As we all commit ourselves to learning, living and supporting one another within this community this year, we recognize that we are all responsible for our collective health and safety.
I pledge to the best of my ability, through my actions, to keep Shenandoah safe for myself and others by doing my part to:
Keep Myself Safe
- By monitoring myself for the symptoms of COVID-19 and reporting them in the Shenandoah Go app. If I experience a fever of 100.4 F (38 C) or higher, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or loss of taste or smell, I will report my symptoms to a medical professional
- By washing my hands multiple times during the day with soap and water for more than 20 seconds or by using hand sanitizer
- By cleaning up after myself and following disinfection protocols for frequently touched surfaces
- By getting vaccinated for COVID-19 unless I’m exempt from the requirement, or I’m not a member of a group required to get the vaccine and I have a compelling reason not to do so
- By getting vaccinated for the flu, unless I have a compelling reason not to do so
Keep Others Safe
- If I am not vaccinated for COVID-19, I will wear an appropriate face covering or mask in all indoor spaces, unless I am in my private space (or otherwise excused from wearing under university policy)
- If I am vaccinated for COVID-19, I will follow all related university policies
- By staying home when I feel ill or if I have been exposed to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19 and following all related university policies
- By supporting others during this difficult time as much as possible
Keep Our Shenandoah Community Safe
- By making sure my personal space, all my belongings, my clothing, and shared spaces are kept clean
- By taking part in COVID-19 testing when necessary and contact tracing so that positive cases and their contacts can be isolated to protect the entire university community
- By quarantining and isolating, as needed, to prevent the spread of the virus
- By following directions on instructional signs placed around campus
By working together and protecting one another, we will keep Shenandoah — all of our stars — as safe as we can. Together, we will rise.
Every student, faculty, and staff member is expected to sign electronically before the start of the academic year via the Shenandoah Go app.
