Wash Your Hands!

One of the most effective measures for stopping any infectious disease is frequent and thorough hand washing. Please join the effort and wash your hands a lot! The Centers for Disease Control has an entire webpage on the science behind hand washing. Check it out! There’s more to it than you think.


Updates on COVID-19

As we face a global pandemic, we come together - in true Oredigger fashion - and protect the health and safety of ourselves and our families, those around us, and our community.

As an Oredigger family, we pledge to take the necessary steps to remain safe and healthy. OrediggerRx is our prescription for a healthy campus. We hope you find all the resources and guidelines you need on this web page. Please review all the topics in the navigation on the left. If you have questions, please email
