The Anderson University COVID-19 Task Force is seeing evidence of community spread.

Our behavior is not self-contained. What we do affects others. 

It’s such a simple concept, but also very true. 

Case in point: Recently, an individual on our campus reported COVID-19 symptoms to Thrive Wellness Center. Unfortunately, that individual tested positive for the virus. Contact tracing revealed several others who were in close contact with the infected person, and led to an additional 25 people being placed in quarantine and/or isolation protocol. 

The Anderson University COVID-19 Task Force is once again seeing evidence that vigilance is waning. Our Journey Ahead protocols have proven to be effective, but they are only as good as the compliance of our campus community. 

Be aware: Finishing the semester is not a foregone conclusion. Just because we’ve been successful thus far does not mean it will continue that way. While there are no plans to do so, the fact remains that canceling in-person instruction and events is a real possibility. 

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is so simple. And we all know what it takes to do it. What we often lose sight of is the will to do so.  

  • Wear a mask. 
  • Keep six feet away from others, indoors and out. 
  • Wash your hands. 
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • If you are placed in isolation or quarantine, cooperate fully with requirements for the sake of the entire campus community.
  • Follow protocols on and off campus. 

With roughly six weeks to go in the fall semester, now is the time to recommit to the Journey Ahead. Now is the time to stamp out the presence of COVID-19 on our campus. 

 We can do it if we are stronger together.
