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.

Spring Semester Update - HEERF II Financial Aid for Students
Feb 4, 2021, 6:00 PM
Dear Students and Colleagues –
A quick and very important update: a group of our colleagues is preparing to receive a second round of Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds from the federal government. Those funds will provide emergency relief to students directly impacted by the pandemic. Some students may recall last spring when many of you received “CARES Act” funds. We anticipate that we’ll ask students to complete a simple application (as you did then) to get the ball rolling. Students – please watch your email for that in the coming days, as the details are being finalized. We will share information as we are able – again, watch your email.
Even as we are hitting our stride this semester, it looks like winter in Wisconsin is as well. We’re seeing that today. The latest forecasts call for serious cold snaps to descend at the end of the weekend, and remain into next week. Students – please be in touch with your professors if severe cold/ice affects your commitments. Colleagues – please stay in touch with students and with the Office for Academic Affairs for any changes to schedules.
We’ve updated our COVID-19 dashboard, and as you can see we continue to do an excellent job of managing our work and our lives this semester. Let’s keep it up: be smart, limit your exposure, stay healthy, and keep your social circles tight. If you plan to gather to watch the Super Bowl (or what I like to call the “Packers-Aren’t-In-It-So-I’m-Here-for-the-Commercials Bowl”), remember that wearing your mask works in our shared commitment to slow the spread.
Cor ad cor loquitur.
