Preventing the spread
In order to do everything we can to keep all of our community as safe as possible, the Edgewood College community will adhere to a number of safety protocols during the 2020-2021 Academic Year as a way of minimizing risk of the spread of COVID-19. These protocols are based on guidelines provided by Public Health Madison Dane County.
As a member of this Community, I will…
- Wash my hands properly and regularly.
- Cover any coughs or sneezes.
- Comply with posted Public Health Madison Dane County requirements.
- Wear a mask covering my nose and mouth while in indoor spaces.
- Maintain social distancing.
- Assist in the use of disinfectant wipes to clean shared public workspaces prior to use.
- Take reasonable precautions to avoid contracting COVID-19 both on- and off-campus.
- Avoid public places and minimize interpersonal contacts if I have been exposed or have any symptoms of any illness.
- Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the College and follow any instructions to seek medical care or to quarantine.
- Agree to be tested for COVID-19, as prescribed by health care professionals. Agree to be cooperative and flexible as we work together to support one another and give our community the best balance of learning and safety.

Fall 2020 Update - The Home Stretch
Nov 6, 2020, 9:00 AM
Dear Students and Colleagues –
This feels like another long week, don’t you think? Midterms are behind us, Election Day is behind us (though not all the results yet), but there is plenty ahead and we are less than three weeks from Thanksgiving. This can be a difficult part of the semester. Students – please reach out to your professors when you feel the need. Colleagues – let’s continue to stay focused on supporting our students and each other. I’m reminded by the weather and the forecast that an excellent way to take care of ourselves is to get fresh air by going for a run or a walk. Amy and I are reminded of the importance of getting out for a walk just about every day by our two four-legged family members, Guinness and Stella. They insist we get plenty of fresh air. Be kind to yourself and be sure to enjoy this late fall burst of sun and warmth.
We’ll begin registering for classes for the Spring in just a few more days. Be sure to be in touch with your advisor and your professors as you continue your academic journey. They are here to support you and assist with any questions. Use them! As a reminder, the Spring 2021 semester proceeds as scheduled—with spring break and Easter recess—and we will continue our practice of in-person undergraduate classes with remote options for both students and faculty. Online programs also will proceed as scheduled.
Thank you to all who have borne the brunt of the impact of this pandemic – many of you have made significant sacrifices for the benefit of our community’s health as we work together to limit the spread. And as we approach the holidays, keep in mind that the last thing anyone wants to do is place older relatives in harm’s way. Let’s continue to support each other. Wear your mask, wash your hands, maintain physical distance, and tighten your social circles. Let’s keep it up, and let’s do it for each other.
Cor ad cor loquitur.
