As a member of the Acadia University community, including the Town of Wolfville and other local 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 returning to campus and the broader university community, and attending in-person classes, I am doing so with 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 can spread the virus and impact or endanger the health of others, and that I am responsible to take reasonable precautions to prevent these impacts.
Although Acadia University will undertake reasonable steps, both as a public body and 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 will do my best to follow the pledge below and am aware if I break this pledge, I will be subject to Acadia’s judicial process through the Non-Academic Judicial Student Code of Conduct.
I agree to be bound by the COVID-19 pledge and acknowledge that if I fail to follow this pledge, I may put myself and others at the university community at increased risk, and that I could be subject to discipline under the Acadia University Non-Academic Judicial Student Code of Conduct.
I do not agree to be bound by the COVID-19 pledge, and understand as a result, I will not be permitted to enter the Acadia University campus.
I am not able to agree to be bound by the COVID-19 pledge due to personal reasons and would like to review my options with an Acadia representative.
