Protect Purdue Pledge

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Boilermakers have taken extraordinary and persistent steps to protect each other and our campus community.

As part of the Purdue community, I will continue to take responsibility for my own health and protect others, as well as our campus community, by helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infections.

I Pledge To:

 1. Protect Myself

I will regularly assess my individual risk for serious disease from COVID-19. Considerations include staying up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations as recommended by the CDC, and wearing a face mask in public if risk of exposure is high. I understand that staying up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations, including boosters, is encouraged.

If I experience any symptoms of COVID-19, whether I am vaccinated or not, I will test quickly either by using an at-home test or by contacting the Purdue University Student Health Center (students), the Center for Healthy Living (employees), or my primary care provider, quarantine in the meantime, and follow additional instructions.

Take personal responsibility, access available resources and practice self-care for my mental health and overall well-being.

 2. Protect Others

Have a personal plan for proper isolation or quarantine should it be necessary and on-campus accommodations not be available.

If I am exposed to an individual who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19, I will follow Protect Purdue recommendations for any needed testing and/or quarantine.

Adhere to evolving Protect Purdue safety protocols as communicated and posted.

 Look out for others, encourage their faithful commitment to the Pledge, and respect their right to choose to wear a mask when masks are not required.

 3. Protect Our Purdue Community

Stay home, away from others, and contact the PUSH (students), CHL (employees), or my primary care provider if I feel ill.

Participate in testing and contact tracing if deemed medically necessary to preserve the wellness of our Purdue community and the continued operations of our University.
