  • Student test results include both weekly asymptomatic sample testing and any potentially symptomatic students who are tested. Our weekly sample testing includes students living on and off campus, and both undergraduate and graduate students. The data does not include the required pre-arrival testing all students completed before returning to Quinnipiac this fall. Any student who tested positive during the pre-arrival testing was required to remain home until cleared to return.

Quinnipiac Pact

Quinnipiac Pact

Quinnipiac is our home away from home. When our faculty, staff and students are among their Bobcat family, their health, safety and support needs will be cared for as if they’re with their own family. Through this pledge, we acknowledge the impact our actions have on each other, and the role we each have in keeping our Quinnipiac community safe from spread of COVID-19. By signing this pledge, I am committing to protect my own health, to help protect the health of others, and to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our neighborhoods and communities.

Protect MY OWN HEALTH

  • Use our mobile symptom-checking app each day to self-monitor for the symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Wash my hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently, and use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
  • Get vaccinated for the flu in the fall (except those who have medical reasons to not receive a flu shot).
  • Students will get tested for COVID-19 before returning to campus and participate in the university’s testing program upon their initial return to campus and as needed as part of the weekly “sample testing” throughout the fall semester.

Protect the HEALTH OF OTHERS

  • Wear a face covering anytime I am outside my living unit or workspace.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least six feet at all times.
  • Stay home and self-isolate if I feel ill or think I may have been exposed to COVID-19, and contact a health care professional.
  • Show compassion, care and respect for all members of the Quinnipiac community and not stigmatize others who test positive.

Prevent the SPREAD OF COVID-19

  • Participate in the university’s contact tracing program as needed to identify if I, or others, may have been exposed to COVID-19 and to limit its spread.
  • Be an advocate for the health of our community by proactively asking others to observe physical distancing and wear a face covering if I see them not supporting these health guidelines.
  • Observe all instructional signs throughout our campuses and follow all directions.
  • Refrain from hosting or attending large, crowded gatherings or parties where the virus could quickly spread.

I will support these shared responsibilities because I recognize no one person or department is solely responsible for enforcing these actions. I also understand there are consequences for disregarding these health measures because of the potential health costs I am inflicting on others – from students not being able to attend classes in person to, in egregious cases, forfeiting the privilege to remain on campus for the remainder of the semester, in accordance with the student conduct process.
