Massachusetts College of Art and Design has developed the #massartpromise to commit to safeguarding the health and well being of our students, our colleagues, and ourselves. All community members are required to read and pledge to the following:
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is a highly infectious, life-threatening disease declared to be a global pandemic. I understand that even if I follow all of the safety precautions to reduce the spread of infection, I can never be completely shielded from all risk of illness caused by COVID-19 or other infections. I understand that the safety of the campus community in respect to COVID-19 is a shared risk and that all community members must do their part to contribute to the health and safety of the community.
A MassArt value is to "honor courage, honesty, mutual respect, and self expression." The MassArt community demonstrates this value each day as artists and collaborators who observe, empathize, and engage with the world around us. By taking seriously the shared pledge to protect ourselves and others, we continue to honor our community.
I agree to comply with these rules and precautions, including, but not limited to, wearing face coverings, washing or sanitizing my hands frequently, physical distancing, monitoring of symptoms, staying home if feeling sick, and self-reporting of symptoms or a positive COVID diagnosis.
Additionally, all community members were required to complete courses ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all of our community members before the start of the Fall 2020 semester.
