Regionals Community Pledge

This Regional Pledge is required as a condition of my participation in any on-campus activity, including but not limited to participating in face-to-face instruction, working on-campus, and participating in any on-campus activities in any university building.

I understand the risks of returning to campus and know that I will be exposed to COVID-19. I pledge to take responsibility for my own health and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus and in the community. In order to reduce my risk and the risk to others, I pledge to:

Engage in Prevention

  • Wear a face covering in all university buildings and when outdoors.
  • Practice physical distancing (6-10 ft. apart).
  • Practice frequent handwashing and hand sanitization.
  • Clean up after myself in common areas and classrooms (cleaning products will be available throughout common spaces and classrooms).
  • Comply with COVID-19 campus signage (directional, capacity, etc.).
  • Not host or attend private gatherings/parties of more than ten people.
  • Consult with my health care provider and get a flu shot, if medically advisable.

As a Miami student and community member, we ask you to take care of yourself and your community and pledge your compliance to these expectations.
