We all have a responsibility to help keep everyone safe on campus and in our local area. This community agreement is about how we can respect and support each other for the benefit of everyone on Team MDX and beyond. It's also important that we work together to follow national and local guidelines.
You'll see that we have put safety measures in place across campus. If you have a reason to come to campus, make sure you read through our guidelines on social distancing and hygiene so you're prepared.
When you're there, you'll see signs with more information about the safety measures and what we're asking everyone - staff, students and visitors - to do to support them.
By showing your support for this agreement you're doing your part to protect our student and staff community and the local community around us.
Part of the community agreement is respecting the personal space of your friends, staff, and all others. To help with this, we've introduced coloured wristbands to show what you're comfortable with while on-campus.
When you walk into the Quad, why not pick up a red, yellow, or green wristband. The colour of your wristband will show what level of contact you're comfortable with - from hugs, only elbow bumps, or avoid close contact altogether.
