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.


Fall 2020 Update - A Crossroads

Title : Fall 2020 Update - A Crossroads
Posting Date / Time : Sep 10, 2020, 15:30 PM
Dear Students and Colleagues -

By now we are all aware of what has transpired at UW-Madison during the last 24 hours or so – all classes online for the next two weeks, and some students quarantined in their residence halls. The story at Edgewood College, so far, is quite different from that.

It has been 4 weeks since our first-year students started moving in, and 3 weeks since we started classes. The Dean of Students Office is doing extraordinary work—with the help and cooperation of the faculty—staying proactive in the way they handle reports of contacts or symptoms associated with COVID-19. Students are taking an active role in this process to reduce the potential for spreading the virus, which is exactly what we should all do – students, faculty, and staff alike. As a result of these cooperative efforts, we have had more than 90 students enter into our “possible case” protocols, and only a small number have actually been positive cases (as of this writing, we have three active positive cases; see our Covid-19 webpage for the most current information). Further, it is early, but it seems that our protocols and our community’s determination have inhibited the spread of the virus at Edgewood College. We are leaning on our values, and they are supporting us. 

I am proud of all of us, and I repeat (again) we have to remain vigilant. To apply a sports metaphor: we are near the end of the first quarter and we have a lead in a game we have played well so far. Let’s continue to follow our protocols and be smart and be safe by wearing our masks, washing our hands, and avoiding large gatherings. What we do off-campus is just as important as what we do on campus. Let’s keep working together so we can stay together through to the completion of the semester.

Our important work goes on because it must. I’m not going to sugar-coat this – it’s often hard to be a college student, and being a student in a global pandemic is harder. We are in what appears to be a better place than our colleagues down the street, but the virus doesn’t care if we’re a Badger or an Eagle. We can do this. We can continue to reach for and achieve our students’ educational goals. And we can do it as a community, as long as we stick together. Look out for each other, support each other, and reach out when your head and heart tell you.

Be well.

Cor ad cor loquitur.
