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.
