Always Wear My Face Mask
As a Mav, I commit to wearing a face covering while on campus.
Wash hands icon
Wash My Hands Frequently
As a Mav, I commit to rigorously practicing hand hygiene and cough etiquette. I will wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after having been in a public place, or after blowing my nose, coughing or sneezing. I will avoid touching my eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. If soap and water are not available, I will use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and Sanitize
As a Mav, I commit to clearing and sanitizing my workspaces and common spaces throughout the day. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones and keyboards.
social distance icon
Stay at Least 6 Feet Apart
As a Mav, I commit to following physical distancing guidelines requiring individuals to maintain at least 6 feet of separation from others. In addition, I will take other precautions like avoiding gathering in groups, sharing equipment and shaking hands.
Monitor health icon
Monitor My Health Every Day
As a Mav, I commit to monitoring my symptoms daily using the Mavericks Safe App before coming to campus. COVID-19 signs and symptoms include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat or a new loss of taste or smell. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. For additional information please visit the CDC's Symptoms of Coronavirus page.

Stay Home If I’m Sick or Exposed to Someone with COVID-19
As a Mav, I commit to staying home or leaving campus immediately if I experience signs or symptoms of COVID-19, and seeking medical evaluation by calling my primary care physician or local urgent care center. If I am diagnosed with probable or confirmed COVID-19, I will report my diagnosis to Mercy’s Student Health Office to facilitate contact tracing and will follow other guidance about isolation or quarantine.

Mavs Will Help Mavs
