"We have a sacred obligation when students come to Howard University to protect them; it's the first priority. This is an urban city which comes with all of the risks of being in an urban city and now, the coronavirus is highest risk that rises to our attention at this point of time," said President Frederick. "However, being an urban campus, there are risks all the time and we take the responsibility of bringing students to campus very seriously. We will put the best effort forward to create a safe campus, but our student's participation in our process is key. We can put up all the safeguards, but if they don't social distance, if they don't wash their hands frequently, if they don't wear their masks, then those are risks that we are not going to be able to combat. We need everyone to commit to make sure that this works."
