How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus? Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often.
What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19? Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine.
What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community. Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office.
How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:
- All seating areas for Phil’s and Wingra have been spaced out for social distancing. Also, Stations that used to be self-serve are now either served by Dining Staff or are single packaged items.
- Health Services will see students for non-COVID concerns by appointment only. Personal counseling will be provided via telehealth.
- Current information on library services during COVID-19 is available on on the library website.
Eagles Coming Together
The start of the second week of fully-online learning has begun, and while there are still challenges with moving into this new environment, the rhythm of the semester has begun to reassert itself.
Campus events continue to move online, and the College Calendar is updated daily with additional opportunities for student to engage as their schedule allows. The Oscar Rennebohm Library staff remain online to provide support for students and faculty. The Technology Assistance Center remains active assisting students, faculty, and staff with connectivity and all things digital.
While we (like many of us) are today in an online learning environment, we are first and foremost a community. Faculty and staff have produced a video that reminds students, and reminds all who are touched by this community, that “we are here for you.”
Bias and Harassment
Edgewood College is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all members of our community. Please remember that any bias or harassment toward community members of perceived Asian descent will not be tolerated. All campus members play an integral part in creating a community that is free from discrimination, harassment, and hate.
