HEALTH AND SAFETY

欧宝体育官网’s public health protocols are subject to change as the COVID-19 situation in Maine continues to evolve and as advised by President Russell and/or the Maine Community College System.

At this time, indoor masking is recommended but not required, based on the latest CDC guidance. However, those individuals who are returning from isolation status or have been exposed to a positive case must continue to follow CDC masking guidelines as described below.

Due to the higher transmissibility of the Omicron variant, all students, including those who are fully vaccinated, should have a plan for isolation housing off-campus. Isolation housing on campus is reserved for those residential students who are fully vaccinated and are unable to travel home due to distance.

Please note that decisions relating to 欧宝体育官网’s health and safety protocols are dependent on caseloads in the state and are developed in consultation with the Maine Community College System, the Maine CDC and our medical advisors. Masking requirements are subject to change and may evolve rapidly over time.

Student Vaccine Protocol

The Maine Community College System (MCCS) strongly encourages students to stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters, but they are not required.

There is one exception:  MCCS students in some programs may require vaccination against COVID-19 due to requirements at third-party locations, such as student placement sites.

Details on the MCCS COVID protocols are available online at www.mccs.me.edu/covid-19.

 

If You Test Positive for COVID-19 (Isolate)

Please complete POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST REPORTING FORM or email vax@noreply-admin.net

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status:

  • Stay home for 5 days.
  • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. This means eating by yourself and wearing a mask around your roommate(s).  However, if you take an antigen test on Day 6-10 and it is negative, take another one 48 hours later.  If that too is negative, you can remove your mask before Day 10.

If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

If You Were Exposed to Someone with COVID-19 (Quarantine)

and are asymptomatic:

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days
  • Test on day 6
