It’s Phlash with a mask and a message

“Bird watchers” have you spotted this one? It’s UW-Green Bay’s own Phlash sporting a mask, and the graphic is the new face of a communication campaign directed at your personal safety. It’s up to all of us—faculty, staff, students—on all four campuses to keep each other, and family and community members safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Health leaders will be using Phlash to communicate important messages and reminders through signs, videos and email. The three most important things to remember according to local health officials and the CDC:

  • Wash your hands
  • Watch your distance
  • Wear a mask

As Chancellor Alexander noted in his communication to our campuses and extended communities last week, “I am unable to predict exactly what will happen with education in the coming months. However, I know we are resilient. As the Phoenix, we are up for the challenge that lies ahead. We will rise into the unknown together.”
