Bucknell Community Responsibility Agreement
Bucknell University is a community of learners committed to supporting the health and safety of all members. We believe we do our best work when we feel safe. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is therefore vital that all community members engage in behavioral public safety measures intended to mitigate the spread of the virus. In so doing, we show compassion and concern for those who are most susceptible. By participating as a member of the campus community, you commit to the following:
Physical distancing of at least 6 feet is expected in all spaces, when feasible. This includes classrooms, labs, hallways, offices, restrooms, common areas and outdoor spaces.
Face coverings must be worn by all members of the community when in shared indoor spaces including classrooms, labs, hallways, offices, restrooms and common areas. Face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing and should be worn even when staying 6 feet apart, especially in indoor spaces. Face coverings should also be worn outside.
Respiratory etiquette (e.g., proper covering of face when coughing or sneezing) is expected at all times.
Proper hand hygiene, including frequent washing with soap and water and/or the use of hand sanitizer, is expected.
COVID-19 signage, regarding hallway and stairway directions, room capacity limitations and other notices, is to be followed at all times.
Reporting of symptoms and isolation when necessary. All community members are expected to consistently report symptoms and follow isolation and/or quarantine guidance from University medical officials.
As the state of the pandemic is fluid, modifications to these guidelines may occur over time. The University will provide consistent, ongoing communication regarding any changes in behavioral guidance.
Thank you in advance for doing your part to keep the Bucknell campus and local community as safe and healthy as possible.
