Spring Semester Plans for Annapolis: Safe Polity Compact

Safe Polity Compact

As a member of the St. John’s College community, I have a personal responsibility to protect my own health and the health and well-being of others. This responsibility is based on the Rules of the College Community—civility, responsibility, honesty, and citizenship.

A healthy community requires my steadfast commitment to specific daily habits and behaviors.


Protect Myself:

  • Perform daily health checks and seek medical advice immediately if I have a fever, dry cough, loss of taste or smell, or other symptoms of COVID-19
  • Wash my hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
  • Maintain my overall physical and mental health

Protect Others:

  • Wear an appropriate face covering in accordance with college policy
  • Maintain appropriate physical distancing, especially in classrooms and other common areas of the college
  • Stay home or in my room when I don’t feel well

Protect Our Community:

  • Participate in testing and contact tracing to promote the health of the community
  • Keep my personal and shared common spaces clean
  • Abide by gathering limitations on and off campus
  • Stay informed and monitor college news and announcements about COVID-19

I understand that not abiding by these behaviors may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from campus and dismissal from the college.
