I Commit To:

(check the box in each section below)

Protect Myself *
  • Practicing proper hand washing and respiratory etiquette (e.g., cover my cough).
  • Self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 by regularly using the 1- Check COVID-19 Screening app and report to a medical professional if I experience fever of 100.4 F (38 C) or higher, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or loss of taste or smell. If I have a change in my health status, I will follow the reporting protocol requirements and provide accurate and complete information to the best of my ability.
  • Supporting my overall wellness by getting regular exercise, eating healthy, getting a good amount of sleep and staying socially connected with my loved ones.
Protect Others *
  • Wearing an appropriate face covering and follow other protective measures as directed by the university.
  • Maintaining appropriate physical distancing in daily interactions especially in classroom settings, common areas such as dining venues, residence halls, exercise and study spaces.
  • Staying home or in my residence hall room if I am sick with COVID-19 symptoms or know that I have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and follow the University’s protocols for isolation or quarantine.
  • Participating in testing and contact tracing as necessary and directed under prescribed protocols.
  • Being supportive and sensitive to anyone around me who may be troubled or struggling.
Protect Our Husker Community *
  • Helping to keep the Husker community safe by mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and other infections as identified and instructed by the university. This includes being aware of the current status of COVID-19 locally, following guidance on UNL’s COVID-19 website, and checking my email regularly for updates.
  • Being responsible for cleaning and disinfecting in those areas under my control, including my clothing, face coverings, belongings and personal spaces.
  • Following directional traffic flow and signage in and outside of buildings to reduce congestion and allow for physical distancing.
  • Being part of the solution. Demonstrate patience and understanding, knowing that we are all in this together as a Husker Community!

I understand that I am making a commitment to protect myself, others, and the Husker community. I will abide by the principles and practices to promote the health, safety, and well-being of this community with my on and off campus actions. I acknowledge that breaking my promise with this statement and failing to safeguard the wellness of my community could potentially lead to sanctions through the Student Code of Conduct.
