Public Health Protocols and Health Compact
A commitment to comply with all public health guidance is included in the Columbia Community Heath Compact that all affiliates will be expected to sign as part of the return to campus. In addition, it is strongly recommended that all affiliates follow these guidelines when engaged in social and other activities off campus, including physical distancing, face covering, and hand hygiene.

The Facilities and Campus Life Working Group has established health and safety protocols for campus operations and created guidelines for use and assignment of space while COVID-19 mitigation strategies are in place.
