Protect Purdue Pledge

Being a part of the Boilermaker community means that each of us, accountable together, must take extraordinary steps to stay well and persistently protect each other, on campus and in the local area. I pledge to take responsibility for my own health and the protection of others, and I will help keep the Purdue community safe from spread of COVID-19 and other infections by adhering to university instructions.

I Pledge To:


 1. Protect Myself

Monitor for the symptoms of COVID-19 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

Wash my hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer

Get vaccinated for the flu in the fall


 2. Protect Others

Maintain appropriate social distancing, especially in classroom settings or the presence of older members of the community

Stay home if I feel ill or after exposure to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19

Wear an appropriate face mask and other protective gear as directed by the university

Look out for others and encourage their faithful commitment to the Pledge


 3. Protect Our Purdue Community

Keep my clothing, belongings, personal spaces and shared common spaces clean

Participate in testing and contact tracing to preserve the wellness of the community

Carefully observe instructional signs and follow directions

On or off campus, students must abide by Protect Purdue Pledge

Students should apply the same health and safety practices off campus that are required on campus to protect themselves and others from the spread of COVID-19, says Dr. Esteban Ramirez, chief medical officer of the Protect Purdue Health Center.
