Our Greenville Community

We can all take action in the fight against COVID-19 every day in the choices we make and the actions we take. Learn how the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville and the City of Greenville are working together to keep Greenville safer for everyone.

What can members of our community do?

Medical evidence shows that following safety guidelines such as wearing a face covering and practicing physical distancing around others can greatly reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. When you’re out in public and potentially around others who are at greater risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19, the personal safety decisions you make aren’t just limited to you — they impact those around you, too.

Greenville Community 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 Greenville.

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

  • Following public health guidelines in place to help protect myself and others.
  • Protecting myself and others in high-traffic areas of campus or situations where physical distancing isn’t possible to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Keeping my hands clean and sanitized while on campus, around Greenville and at home.
  • Adhering to capacity and occupancy 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 Greenville safer for all.
