Oswego Forward Pledge

SUNY Oswego acknowledges the vital role all members of our college community play in helping to protect the health and safety of each other. Your agreement to this pledge will let us know that you are making a choice to be mindful of your actions and how they truly affect the very lives of others. This fall, you will play a critical role in helping to safeguard the health and safety of yourself and those in our greater community.

As a member of the SUNY Oswego community, I pledge I will:

  1.  Show kindness, empathy and respect toward myself and all members of the community.

  2.  Complete SUNY Oswego’s online daily COVID-19 screening form before leaving my residence (on or off-campus) each day I intend to come to campus.
    Note: If I am not feeling well, I will self-quarantine, and I will seek care from health officials. If I ever test positive for COVID-19, I will immediately notify SUNY Oswego’s Student Health Services (if a student) or Human Resources (if an employee).

  3.  Wear a face covering when I am on campus that covers my nose and mouth except when I am alone, with a roommate or assigned “Pod” members (if a student), or while eating or drinking;

  4.  Adhere to all state, local and college social distancing and group gathering guidelines;

  5.  Wash my hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol base;

  6.  Remember that I play a critical role in slowing/preventing the spread of COVID-19.
