Protect Purdue Pledge

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

Give to the Protect Purdue Initiative Fund here.

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

Be positive, attentive and helpful to anyone around who may be in need of support


 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
