Oredigger Promise:

Our Climb Continues

We made it through the 2020-21 school year together, on campus and in person, and we can do it again this year.

But just as global data trends show us the pandemic isn’t over, we also know it will take a shared commitment from us all to safely navigate the year ahead.

As our understanding of the virus increases and variants take center stage, our commitment to protecting our community needs to evolve. This year’s Oredigger Promise reflects this evolution as well as our continued need to climb together and protect our classmates and colleagues, our families and neighbors.

I WILL:

MONITOR MY HEALTH DAILY AND CHECK FOR COVID-19 SYMPTOMS
I will stay home if I am experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 – even if I feel well enough to come to campus and even if I’m vaccinated. I will get tested for COVID-19 before returning to campus life. I will report symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19 to Mines.

ISOLATE AND QUARANTINE AS DIRECTED
Isolation is for those who test positive for COVID-19 and quarantine is for those who have had close-contact exposure to someone with COVID-19.

WEAR AN APPROPRIATE FACE COVERING
over my mouth and nose when inside classrooms, teaching labs, computer labs and other campus locations designated at entrances. I will also be supportive if others choose to wear face masks in other spaces around campus.

WASH MY HANDS FREQUENTLY
using soap and water or hand sanitizer.

PARTICIPATE IN CONTACT TRACING AND TESTING
to preserve the wellness of the community.

BE GRACIOUS AND ATTENTIVE
when others provide safety reminders and when I notice a fellow Oredigger who may be struggling.
