Campus Mask Policy

Updated 2/18/22

Due to the rapid decrease in Covid-19 cases in St. Francois County and the surrounding area, starting Monday, February 21, 2022, we will be changing our Mask Policy from required to recommended for all MAC classrooms, buildings, and activities. 

Vaccines and testing are readily available in our community.  If you test positive or have symptoms, please isolate and follow our protocol to not put others at risk. Reporting information may be found below.

Thank you for your cooperation over the past two years as we have all learned to navigate this historic time. 

Students:
Please notify our Contact Tracer by email at covid@MineralArea.edu or by phone at 573-518-2174.

Employees:
Please notify our Contact Tracer by email at covid@MineralArea.edu or by phone at 573-518-2174.

Employees should also notify their supervisor when not reporting to work.​

General Services is taking additional measures to clean and sanitize our buildings including routine disinfection in high-traffic areas. 

 

On-campus performances will be allowed on a case-by-case basis and performers may be exempt from masking while performing. Patrons will be expected to comply with current campus masking and distancing guidelines in the seating and lobby areas.

All games will be played as allowed by the NJCAA and Region XVI. Fans at games will be expected to comply with current campus masking and distancing guidelines.

Below is the link to the Return to Campus plan as of January 5, 2022.

Protect yourself and others

We encourage you to follow the CDC recommendations and use common-sense precautions to help prevent the spread of viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash, then wash hands or use sanitizer.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at your home or workplace.
