As a member of the Acadia community including the Town of Wolfville and surrounding communities, it is my responsibility to help protect those around me by “flattening the curve” and preventing the spread of COVID-19. I recognize that by voluntarily returning to campus and the broader university community, and attending in-person classes, I am doing so in full awareness that I am accepting the risk that I might contract COVID-19 from a student, an employee of the university, or a member of the public. I also acknowledge that I may endanger the health of others if I am carrying the virus and all reasonable precautions must be taken by me.
Although Acadia University will undertake reasonable steps, as required by the Nova Scotia Public Health authorities, to minimize all related risks, the risk of contracting COVID-19 cannot be eliminated. I understand and accept my responsibility to do all that is required of me and to comply with all policies, procedures and directives that the University may develop from time to time.
I acknowledge that if a fail to follow this pledge, I put myself and others at the university community at risk, and that I could be subject to discipline under the Student Code of Conduct.
I hereby acknowledge that I have read, understand and agree to be bound by the COVID-19 pledge, and I will take all reasonable steps to comply with this pledge and any related policies, directives and public health orders.
