Upon my return to campus, I agree to:
Wear a mask at all times in public.
Wash my hands thoroughly and regularly.
Maintain six feet of distance from other people outside of my household.
Not attend social gatherings.

Is this contract, or others like it, enough to keep campuses and communities safe from COVID-19?
