COVID 19 Information
Safety in the Edgewood College Residence Halls is of vital importance to our community. A holistic approach is imperative for a successful residential experience this year. Mitigation efforts in the residence halls at Edgewood College fall in to the four CDC recommended areas: maintaining healthy operations, maintaining healthy environments, promoting behaviors that reduce spread and responding when someone gets sick. All members of our community will need to remain aware of how their own decisions and actions affect the greater good.
We are operate all of the residence halls with students living in singles and doubles in each hall. We do not have triple occupancy spaces and may move students to singles upon request and as space is available.
Maintaining a healthy environment is key and includes additional cleaning of community spaces (bathrooms and lounges) and high touch surfaces. We also provide residents with instructions on proper cleaning of personal spaces. Extra cleaning supplies for common areas will also be available.
Promoting Behaviors that Reduce Spread
An important piece to protecting our residence halls lies with the residents themselves. Education in multiple formats will be provided.
Responding when Someone gets Sick
While we do all we can to prevent illness in the halls, we have developed protocols in the event that a resident develops symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19. Before moving in, all residents identify a safety plan for potential illness and we will ensure protocol is in place for isolation and contact notification.
