Whether you are on campus or away, it is important that you take precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is a shared responsibility and all students are expected under the Elon’s Honor Code to follow these guidelines and take these precautions at all times.

If you are in a category the CDC has deemed as higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, consult the CDC’s extra precautions site and speak with your healthcare provider about risks and how to manage them.
