Your Corona Chronicle

Keeping common sense highly contagious


Pat yourself on the back with a well-sanitized hand — you’ve finished classes in what has been the longest semester in history! Finals week is coming, and it’s stressful, which makes the need to take care of yourself (and others) even more important. Finish smart and finish strong.

Share and Share (A)like.
We’ll be pushing and posting a little positivity next week on our social media. Each day, we’ll feature a different prompt encouraging fun fall reflection. Take a study break, and check your feed; it won’t be the same without you.

Parting Shots
Seriously, get your flu shot. Documentation confirming you received a shot is due December 15, and it’s required for the spring semester. Beyond that, do it for you. In a year of unwelcome surprises, don’t add the flu to your list.

Do It for Kendall
This is when we ask you for the millionth time to wear a mask, wash your hands and social distance. If you don’t want to do it for you, your friends, family or others, do it for Kendall Hinton (’19). He’s the Deac who stepped up to run the show for the Denver Broncos last weekend because ALL of their QBs didn’t mask up and were ineligible to play. We know it’s gotten old, but with numbers rising, it’s more important now than ever.

One More for the Road
… or the rails, or the sky. No matter how you plan on traveling this holiday season, here’s another reminder to play it extremely safe. If you can avoid travel, that’s plan A. But we know for many of you that’s not possible. So when the risks are higher, please raise your safety game accordingly. Here are some tips from the CDC that can help.

And always remember… that the entire Wake Forest community is proud of, and inspired by, what you’ve accomplished this semester. Stay safe, take care of yourselves and continue to lead by example.
