Because COVID-19 infects individuals by spreading across and within close community networks, it is essential that every one of us in the residential community enters into a shared obligation and commitment to act prudently, safely, and in accordance with public health directives. Those who live on campus take on the shared risk of the community and the obligation to protect others. Residential students must be particularly sensitive to the fact that their neighbors or fellow residents are impacted by their decisions. Though we have reduced the density of the residence halls for the fall semester, strong communication skills and empathy for others will be important characteristics to cultivate to ensure a safe and enjoyable living environment.
