Published: August 13, 2020 Author: From Staff Reports

Students, faculty and staff can access OHIO Pledge online or through training

All Ohio University students, faculty, and staff are required to complete an online training module before their planned return to campus this fall. The 10-minute training session focuses on efforts made to keep our community safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Only students, faculty and staff returning for Phase 1 are required to complete the training at this time. The training includes a review of the OHIO Pledge.

The pledge asks the University community to do its part to stop the spread of coronavirus by following health and safety precautions and guidelines during the upcoming school year. Students, faculty, and staff who are not returning in Phase 1 may still log in with their OHIO ID to sign the pledge online. The process takes only a few minutes to complete.

The training course covers expectations for personal protection such as face masks, hygiene, and physical distancing. It also provides information about University Policy and guidelines, and how to stay informed. The pledge acknowledges an understanding of and commitment to the behaviors described in the training. 

The training must be completed before students, faculty, and staff return to campus.

Students, faculty, and staff can visit www.ohio.edu/coronavirus now to access the training and pledge.
