Message four in our series intended to help clarify COVID-related processes and procedures focuses on keeping our community healthy and safe.

What can I do to keep myself and the HLS community healthy?

There are a few simple measures we should each take to greatly reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19, including:

  • Test regularly—we are monitoring weekly testing compliance, and as a reminder, failure to keep to your testing cadence may result in an involuntary leave of absence, meaning you cannot complete your coursework for the semester
  • Wear a mask, and wear it correctly—fully over your mouth and nose. If you find that your masks slips, try a different size or style. Masks are required in all indoor spaces, including classrooms, hallways, dorms, common areas, and study rooms. Small study rooms in the WCC and in the library are areas where compliance has been a challenge—please do not put us in a position of having to decide if these spaces can remain open for use
  • Wash your hands often
  • Socialize thoughtfully (outdoors when possible) and minimize contact when you can possible
  • Eat and drink safely—even in eating and drinking areas, eat quickly, and re-mask. Remember “quick sips” in the classroom are just that—quick. Take your drink, and put your mask back on. Eating is NOT permitted in the classroom
  • Plan smart events
  • Pay attention to how you feel and stay home if you feel sick
  • Use Crimson Clear to notify HUHS if you have symptoms, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have tested positive outside of the University’s testing program or HUHS

We all have a role to playing in keeping the HLS community and our neighboring communities safe. Please stay vigilant and do your part!
