King’s COVID-19 Commitment
Upon my honor and in service to our community, I pledge to take responsibility for my own health, the protection of others, and to help keep the King’s community safe from the spread of COVID-19.
This commitment must be signed by all on-campus students, staff, and faculty by Friday, January 14. Fully remote students and staff do not need to sign the commitment.
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:4, ESV)
At King’s, we believe in loving our neighbors as ourselves. As we return to campus, each member of our community must take steps to stay healthy and remain mindful of the well-being of their neighbors.
Upon my honor and in service to our community, I pledge to take responsibility for my own health, the protection of others, and to help keep the King’s community safe from the spread of COVID-19. I recognize this is an abnormal semester that may entail sacrifice and inconvenience. I commit to choose positivity in the midst of difficulty as I pledge to:
1. Protect Myself
- Wash my hands often with soap and water and use hand sanitizer as available.
- Get tested for COVID-19 within 24 hours of COVID-19 symptoms that are abnormal to my general ongoing health condition, or when directed to by the College Emergency Phone.
2. Protect Others
- Report to a medical professional and The King’s College Emergency Phone at 646-242-4411 if I develop symptoms of COVID-19 that are abnormal to my general ongoing health condition, suspect exposure to COVID-19, or test positive for COVID-19.
- Abide by required College quarantine and isolation procedures.
3. Protect My Community
- Follow directions, campus signage, and room occupancy limits.
- Clean and sanitize the personal spaces and shared common spaces that I use.
- When necessary, participate in COVID-19 testing or contact tracing to preserve the wellness of the community.
I have read and agree to abide by the Reopening Plan during the 2021-2022 academic year, and as The King’s College adapts to changing COVID-19 realities in New York City and within our community, I understand that possible future restrictions may be implemented to protect the health and safety of the King’s community.
