Study Safe and Stay Healthy

All of us at Mid Michigan College know that staying healthy and safe are important as you build a #BolderBrighterBetter future. We've updated our COVID-19 protocols to align with public health guidelines and to ensure you can study safe and stay healthy at Mid.

Mid is not requiring COVID-19 vaccinations (except for students actively enrolled in health science programs), but highly recommends students and staff consider getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Higher vaccination rates will allow all of us to study safely and stay healthy throughout the upcoming semester.

For those NOT Fully Vaccinated

Mid recommends that individuals who are NOT fully vaccinated and have been knowingly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, get tested for COVID-19 within 3-5 days of exposure, remain off campus while awaiting test results, and complete a COVID-19 Self Report Form.

COVID-19 Cases on Campus

Should a positive COVID-19 case be confirmed, Mid will work with the Central Michigan District Health Department (CMDHD) on contact tracing.

This process is important and complies with all privacy laws to accurately communicate necessary facts to others. CMDHD may notify the College of any positive test results that involve any students, employees, or visitors.

If any students, employees, or visitors are not within CMDHD jurisdiction, Mid will work with the appropriate health department to confirm test results and conduct contact tracing. Mid's COVID-19 case communication and management plan is online.

Sanitize High-Traffic Areas

Mid’s custodial teams continue to regularly and thoroughly clean and disinfect all areas of each campus.

In addition, employees and students should wipe down their workstations, phones, copy machines, light switches, desks, etc. within their own office/classroom areas prior to using and before leaving the space each day. Cleaning products are available in all areas.

Example: A classroom is used for a staff meeting. Employees should wipe surfaces prior to sitting down and clean them again once the meeting has ended. This would be the same for a course. Students should clean the areas that they use.
