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.
The entire Wake Forest community is proud of and inspired by what you’ve accomplished this semester. Stay safe, take care of yourselves and continue to lead by example.
This is how it’s done — even while you’re away.
Even while you’re away from campus during the holidays, common sense still plays a vital role in our reality. Follow CDC guidelines by washing your hands, wearing a mask and keeping a safe distance. These are all things we can and need to do in order to keep our community safe and healthy this winter.
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 semester to remember.
