Columbia Resident Pledge

I pledge to do my part to keep our community in good health.

I understand I have a role in the fight against COVID-19 and pledge to take responsible actions when among my fellow citizens in Columbia.

I will demonstrate personal integrity, respect for others, and support the health and safety of the greater Columbia community by:

  • Following public health guidelines in place to better protect myself and others.
  • Protecting myself and others in high-traffic areas or settings where physical distancing isn’t possible to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
  • Keeping my hands clean and sanitized when out in the community.
  • Adhering to capacity limits in social situations to prevent high-spread scenarios.
  • Modifying my actions and encouraging others to do the same as guidelines and recommendations adapt over time.

By taking the pledge, I accept responsibility for myself and my actions and will do my best to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to help keep Columbia safer for all.

By submitting my name below, I Pledge Columbia:​


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
