The HBU Holiday Preparation Checklist

It’s hard to believe the holidays are upon us and the remainder of the semester’s classes will be held virtually. Below is a checklist for you to consider for your, and other’s safety and health during the holiday and remote season.


TO PROTECT YOU AND THOSE WITH WHOM YOU WILL BE SPENDING THE HOLIDAYS AND REMOTE SESSION, PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

  Get your flu shot so you can further protect your health during the flu season

  Hold a family meeting to discuss health and safety expectations during this time


  Commit to creating a safe holiday bubble – everyone pledge to follow this process for the community’s health and wellness

  Identify the location you will be spending the holiday and finishing your remote classes and note any safety and health precautions you need to take to limit your COVID-19 exposure

  Make sure you have your mask and that you have a spare in case your mask gets lost
  Check any travel and safety restrictions for the are to which you will be traveling

  Self-Quarantine or Isolate as early as you can before you leave campus for the holidays and remote session

  Follow strict viral exposure practices (wear your mask, physically distance, avoid crowds, wash and sanitize your hands often

Check your temperature and symptoms daily, and report any symptoms or exposure to COVID-19 you may have to the people you will be staying with and to HBU’s Student Life Office (studentlife@hbu.edu)

  Get a Rapid or PCR diagnostic test before you go to know if you need to quarantine from others for their safety and your recovery from a possible positive COVID-19 test

ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO REMEMBER

  If you are a student who lives in the residence colleges, make sure you have let HBU Residence Life know if you plan to stay in your residence hall assignment until you have completed your last fall 2020 final

  Make sure and check your HBU email daily for any updates or important messages concerning the remainder of the fall and preparation for the spring 2021 semester. A return to campus checklist will also be sent after the winter holidays as the spring semester approaches to help you prepare for the HBU experience in the safest and most successful way possible
Remember that your actions do not simply affect you but affect all with whom you come into contact. Wear your mask, be wise where you go and what you do, and care as much about other people’s safety and health as you do about your own
