A Safe Return to Campus - COVID-19 Guidance
Students are expected to remain off campus unless they are required to be on campus to attend class or other pre-approved activities. We ask that all students adhere to the following requirements when they are on campus:
General Campus Requirements
- Symptom monitoring and COVID-19 Daily Screening - Students, faculty and staff must conduct personal monitoring of symptoms and exposure. If a student is experiencing symptoms, they must stay home and not come to campus. All individuals must complete the online screening no earlier than two hours prior to entering any MCW-leased or owned facility. Individuals who forget to complete the screening should complete it as soon as possible.
- Face Coverings - Face coverings are required to be worn by every person at all times within any common space and in rooms occupied by more than one person. Students are expected to provide their own mask or face covering. Note that faculty must wear a face mask even if a face shield is being used when providing instruction.
- Physical Distancing - Physical distancing of six feet apart is required in all spaces including hallways, classrooms, conference rooms and public spaces such as the library, lounges, eating areas and exercise facilities.
- Badge Access - Badge access will be required for all MCW students, staff and faculty to enter MCW buildings.
