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 – Steady as We Go

Dear Students and Colleagues –

This week, on Wednesday, the Christian members of our community began the season of Lent. The word “Lent” comes from the same origin as the word “lengthen.” Lent is a liturgical season preparing us for Easter, and it is a recognition that days are growing longer as spring approaches (I know, spring seems a long way off, given the temperatures we’ve experienced this past week). It is encouraging to realize that, just as spring will eventually come, we are beginning to realistically anticipate the end of this pandemic. This week’s message includes two important messages relating to the pandemic.

First, by now, I trust many (most?) of you students have read the email from Edgewood Central, inviting you to apply for Emergency Relief Funds. Let me say again that it is important that all students—undergraduate and graduate, part-time and full-time—apply for these funds. They are available to offset costs and hardship brought on by the pandemic. We want you, our students, to achieve your academic goals. Please take a few short minutes and complete the simple application. If you have questions, please contact Edgewood Central.

Second, Wisconsin’s numbers related to the pandemic continue to trend in the right direction. Our numbers also tell a good story. We are currently at a very low level of positive cases, and we have remained at a low level so far this semester. In fact, on Wednesday of this week, for the first time since we began tracking cases in August,  we had zero active cases. That says a lot about you and about this community. Let’s remember, while “zero” is a great place to be, the bigger and more important objective is managing through the pandemic such that our students, faculty, and staff remain healthy and engaged in this community of learners.

Now is not the time to let our guard down. We’re about a month into the Spring semester, with a month or so to go before break. Let’s continue to keep our circles tight, wear our masks, and support each other.

And students – complete the application to apply for Emergency Relief Funds!

Be well.

Cor ad cor loquitur.
