Show Humanitate takes Pro Humanitate to heart. It’s a way of life that shows you care about your community, and it sets the bar high for the words and actions you choose. Show Humanitate is more than wearing a mask, keeping a safe distance or complying with campus policies. It’s the underlying reason you do those things, and it speaks to the way you will continue to lead your life when you leave the Forest.
Now that we’re back in yellow status things are slowly starting to open up again. While things are moving in the right direction – we still need to keep our eyes on the prize and continue to practice the behavior that helped us get here.
Take your shot.

Masks offer some protection to you and are also meant to protect those around you, in case you are unknowingly infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Unless you are actively eating, masks should be worn consistently, especially when social deaconing is not an option.
PRACTICE SAFE SIX
It’s smart to take precautions when it comes to physical contact. By maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others, you can reduce the spread of germs normally transmitted by touching, close-talking, coughing or sneezing.
In 15-20 seconds, soap and water can kill COVID-19 and other germs. Please make an intentional effort to wash your hands frequently. It not only protects you, but it keeps our community healthier because it reduces the transfer of germs to objects and surfaces.
A year to remember.
