As a student of Brenau University, how can we feel confident that we would not get COVID-19 just by walking on campus? The virus is contracted by too many people who do not know if they have it or not. On the other hand the state of Georgia where Brenau university is located, reaches the number 6 on the list with more cases of coronavirus and carrying over “16,835 deaths” to now. This is the main reason why Brenau University makes every possible requirement to avoid anyone to get infected.
The corona virus has been one of the worst things that have happened since 2020 and even today it continues to advance. Some people do not know about COVID and think COVID does not exist. And since they think it does not exist, they keep spreading it. In Brenau University everyone is responsible by getting themselves checked every morning with a thermometer and after taking the temperature checked, each student is responsible for helping to answer some questions about COVID-19.
In the Brenau University website, “COVID-19 Reporting and Cases”, is mentioned that “Brenau University requires all students, faculty, staff and visitors complete a daily self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before returning to campus or interacting with the campus community face-to-face”. The survey is sent to every student who is part of the community from Brenau. They should find it in their emails. Among those questions are, “how much was the temperature you got today?” and when you are done with the survey, it will let you know if you can attend school. Each student is responsible for answering these questions before entering classes. He or she will have to show it to their teachers in order to be allowed to enter the classroom.
In addition to that in each class students have to sit 6 ft. away from one another. Students have been feeling good since Brenau is making the enough resources and actions for the staff and students. Although, if someone has not been feeling good and/or temperature is high enough to not be able to attend classes, every class is required to have a zoom class which you can be able to attend from the dorms or anywhere you at. Everyone at Brenau University collaborates to have a healthy and clean habit. We help each other to advance as a community like we have always in Brenau University. Finally, Brenau University is also offering the vaccine at the university’s health and science center.
