New Public Health Order and You

Dear Students -

We are nearing the end of the semester, which I know has been very different for all of us. I must say that I really appreciate the diligence and care that most of you have shown in following our COVID-19 protocols during this semester. It’s clear that the vast majority of our students have taken this pandemic seriously and have made sacrifices to keep our community safe.

The pandemic is still here, and throughout Wisconsin the numbers are getting worse. Late Tuesday we heard from Dr. Manion about Emergency Order #10, enacted in a continuing effort to slow the spread of the virus.

The Order prohibits any indoor gathering that includes others from outside of a household or living unit, and prohibits any outdoor gathering of more than 10 people from outside of your living unit. This means that it is a violation of Madison Municipal Ordinances to host anyone inside of your house, apartment, or other living unit unless they are officially a part of your household.

Emergency Order #10 applies to all of us in Dane County: students living in the res halls and those living off-campus, and faculty, and staff. Off-campus students who are found to be in violation of the new Order will face consequences specified by Public Health Madison/Dane County.

In addition, reports of violations will be forwarded to the Student Conduct process at Edgewood College for investigation and potential action. Please continue to good members of our College community and the Madison community by diligently following this order.

As always, please reach out to deanofstudents@edgewood.edu or 608-663-2212 if you have further questions.

Vice President for Student Development 

Task Force Fall 2020

A work group charged with shaping the return to campus this fall. We remain committed to on-campus, in-person living and learning at Edgewood College, beginning with welcoming our newest students on Sunday, August 16, 2020.

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.
