All members of the Terrier community are expected to take an active role in promoting the safety, health and wellbeing of every community member. That means abiding by all health and safety directives from federal, state, local and college officials through the fall 2020 semester and beyond and encouraging others to do the same.

Everyone has a role in protecting themselves, their friends and family, and the SFC communities. By taking this pledge, and continuing to demonstrate kindness and compassion towards one another, we will continue to be #StrongerTogether.

Terrier Safety Pledge: I pledge to take the following actions:

Question Title

1. Start Each Day with a Health Check-In

I will complete a daily health screening questionnaire (located on the MYSFC app or to assess my symptoms and exposure, as listed by the Centers for Disease Control, prior to arriving on campus, and I agree to do so on any day that I plan to come to campus. I will notify the St. Francis College Nurse if I exhibit symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 by emailing and agree to be symptom free for 72 hours before returning to campus.

Question Title

2. Get My Temperature Scanned Each Time I Enter the Campus

I will be scanned for possible fever upon arrival to campus and I agree to do so at the front scanners upon my arrival to campus. If my temperature is 100.4 or higher, I will be asked to re-submit the daily health screening questionnaire and return home or to the residence halls and connect with a health care provider. I will need to be symptom free for 72 hours before returning to campus.

Question Title

3. Wear a Mask or Face Covering

I will wear a mask or face covering at all times while on campus.

Question Title

4. Follow Health and Hygiene Practices
I will wash my hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available.

Question Title

5. Clean Your Work-Space

I agree to keep any work station I use clean by wiping down commonly used surfaces in personal and shared spaces: chair/desk, phone, computer stations, printers, etc.  While the College's Facilities Team has put in place extensive cleaning protocols on campus which includes an increased frequency of routine disinfection of high-touch surfaces, we ask that you do your part too.  Don't know how? Training videos on health and safety practices will be available on our Back to Brooklyn webpage (

Question Title

6. Use My SFC ID to Swipe in and out of the Campus

I agree to use my SFC ID to swipe into the building as well as when I leave so that the College knows when members of our community are on and off campus.

Question Title

7. Maintain 6 feet of distance from Others.

I agree to practice social distancing by maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from others, whenever possible.

Question Title

8. Follow Newly Posted Direction and Guidance Signs on Campus

I agree to read and follow new signs on campus which provide important direction and information.

Question Title

9. Schedule Appointments for all Resources and Services on Campus

I will schedule an appointment whenever possible for any needed services.  We ask all members of the SFC community schedule an appointment with the person/office they wish to see, whenever possible, to guarantee their needs are met.

All SFC resources and services will remain in operation virtually, which means they continue to be available to serve you remotely via email, video-conferencing, or phone. We will however have a very limited team on campus to support student needs.

Question Title

10. Know Travel Requirements and Restrictions

"Per the DOH’s Interim Guidance issued on November 3, 2020, “[a]ll travelers entering New York from a state that is not a contiguous state, or from a CDC Level 2 or 3 Travel Health Notice country, shall quarantine for a period of 14 days.” Further “[a]ll individuals coming into New York from either a non-contiguous state or US territory, or any CDC Level 2 or Level 3 Health Notice country, whether or not such person is a New York resident, are required to complete the Traveler Health Form upon entering New York.” Contiguous states are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont. Travelers from these states are not subject to this guidance.

Per Executive Order 205.2, travelers to New York may now opt-out of the 14 day quarantine requirement by doing the following. If the person was out of state for more than 24 hours, they must: (1) get a COVID-19 test in the other state within 72 hours of their departure for NY; (2) quarantine in NY for a minimum of three (3) days from time of arrival; (3) get a COVID-19 test in NY on day 4; and (4) may exit quarantine “upon receipt of the second negative test result.” 

Question Title

11. Be Informed on Campus Policies and New Protocols

I will review the College's Back to Brooklyn webpage ( daily to ensure I am aware of any changing policies and protocols.

Question Title

12. Fully and Honestly Participate in Contact Tracing

I will participate in any contact tracing questionnaires or interviews as required by local and state guidelines, if needed.

Question Title

13. Stay Connected to our Terrier Community

I will check my SFC email and SFC Navigate app (students only) to help stay current with all campus events and Back to Brooklyn safety plans.  Our SFC community is here to support you and we need you to remain connected and engaged. We will continue to offer exciting campus events and programs virtually with the possibility of some limited events on campus! Please do not miss out on these awesome experiences to learn, grow, and come together as a community!

I understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19, which is a contagious disease, in any place where people are present, including College residence halls, common areas, classrooms, and in other areas on campus; and despite the safety measures The College has instituted, The College cannot guarantee that members of the campus community will not be exposed to and/or contract COVID-19 or other illnesses.
