Protect Our Web

Love the web. Stay in it!

February, which includes the Valentine’s Day holiday, is a month often associated with love. As we continue the spring semester, the University of Richmond is asking you to think about love in the context of loving our web as a reason to further your commitment to protect it. In addition to unwavering adherence to our campus protocols, including wearing a mask and physical distancing, right now, one of the best ways you can love and protect our web is to stay in it.

On-campus students should not go off campus, except for essential reasons, and students living off campus should practice the same adherence to our policies, limit community exposures, and not host or attend social gatherings with outside guests at their homes or area bars or restaurants.

Demonstrating care for one another and the entire Spider family includes: 

  • Following mask and distance requirements
  • Avoiding social gatherings
  • Staying on campus to the greatest extent possible
  • Promptly disclosing symptoms or test results related to COVID-19
  • Fully cooperating with contact tracing
  • Actively adhering to isolation and quarantine requirements

We thank you for your role in caring for our web. We are Many Spiders, One Web.

Resolve to protect our web

January is a month focusing on resolutions and new commitments. As we embark on the spring semester at the University of Richmond, the Health Promotion and Compliance Team is asking you to resolve to protect our web and recommit to our health and safety protocols we know are working and keep our community safe.

These measures include correctly wearing a face covering, washing your hands often, and maintaining six feet of physical distance. As in the fall, it is our shared responsibility to keep our community safe, and we must all do our part to create an environment where we can have a successful in-person, residential experience. We are Many Spiders, One Web.
