Every Wildcat A Wellcat Pledge

At K-State, we are committed to putting others first. Right now, this means taking small steps to stay well and protect others. Therefore, I will take responsibility for my own health and keep my Wildcat Family safe by helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infections.

I voluntarily commit to:

Care for myself

  • Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and contact my primary care physician, Lafene Health Center or another medical professional if I experience any one of the following symptoms: a fever of 100.4°F (38°C) or higher, dry cough, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
  • Wash my hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
  • Be honest and forthcoming with Lafene Health Center or other medical professionals if I have been exposed to COVID-19 or am experiencing any symptoms.
  • Get vaccinated for COVID-19 and the flu as recommended.
  • Know campus health and well-being resources and access them when needed.

Care for fellow wildcats

  • Stay home if I feel ill.
  • Wear an appropriate face mask and other protective gear as directed by the university.
  • Stay positive, sensitive and helpful to anyone around me who may be troubled or struggling.

Care for K-State and surrounding communities

  • Keep my clothing, belongings, personal spaces and shared common spaces clean.
  • Participate in COVID-19 testing and contact tracing to preserve community wellness if requested.
  • Follow all university policies and procedures regarding COVID-19 and other infections.
  • Abide by all city, county and state guidelines, including quarantine and isolation procedures, to protect our K-State host communities.
