In It #WPITogether

Let’s start off with the obvious: this is hard. None of us have ever dealt with anything like this before, and through all the changes and adaptations, you’ve stepped up. That’s huge. None of thisan open campus, low positivity ratewould be possible without your collective commitment to health and safety.

And while this is a new normal for now, it’s important to remember that this isn’t normal. We can’t get complacent just because we’ve gotten used to grabbing a face covering before heading out the door; we still need to take all the proper precautions to keep ourselves and those around us as safe as possible. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and we’re well on our way to reaching it, so let’s keep the momentum going. Join in on the effort, not just by wearing your face coverings, washing your hands, and keeping your distance, but by sharing the messages with those around you. Post them online, print them out as reminders for yourself and others, and show everyone exactly how and what it means to protect the herd.

(And remember, don't be that goat.)

Quest to Campus C-Term

Ready for Their Socially Distanced Close-Ups

Wearing face coverings, limiting close contacts, using the symptom tracker, staying home when sick—see how WPI students are taking proactive steps to be safe both before and after returning to campus (as well as figuring out how many Dunkin’ cups is six feet...it’s 18, by the way).

A graphic encouraging the WPI community to minimize the size of their personal bubbles to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Protect the Bubble

We know you’re excited to see your friends, but all of us returning to campus at once means there’s a higher risk of virus transmission. Your bubble is bigger than you think, and the more people you’re in contact with, the more likely the spread of illness. Positive cases lead to quarantining of close contacts, which, if left unchecked, could prevent us from returning to Green status. That’s why it’s crucial, now more than ever, that we limit close contacts and narrow down our personal bubbles to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the WPI community.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t see anyone—check out the 30 Things to Do page for ideas on how to catch up with friends (and meet new ones) while still doing your part to protect the bubble. And don’t forget: always keep six feet from others, avoid gatherings, and wear a face covering.

Spread the Word, Not the Virus

By not being that goat, completing quests to campus, and more, you play an important role in protecting the herd. We need your commitment, flexibility, dedication, and empathy to help us maintain a campus that’s as safe and healthy as possible.

We’ve done it before, and we can do it again—but we need your help.

So what do you say, WPI? Are you up to the challenge?
