It’s Your Health, But We’re All Involved                                                            

Student Personal Health Responsibility

This outline is to help you navigate on campus.  All guidelines are for your safety and the safety of others.  Your participation is very much necessary and appreciated.

Beginning August 1, please try to take extra precautions not to gather in large groups where exposure to COVID-19 might be possible.  Plan to arrive on campus healthy and COVID free.

You will be required to participate in a daily self-screening report and submission process.  You will need a thermometer for this process, so bring one to campus.

  • If you are sick (symptoms may or may not include fever of 100.4 or higher, dry cough, fatigue), do not attend in-person classes.  If able when sick, attend the Zoom version of your lecture classes to maintain passing grades.
  • Wear a mask and maintain social distancing guidelines.
  • Wash your hands and wash them again.  Keep a supply of hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue then throw away.  Wash your hands again.
  • Disinfect all high-touch areas in your living space and automobile. 


All MSC students must wear masks when inside any campus building.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines indicate that when all wear masks, the risk for transmission is lower.

High-Risk Students

If you are a student who falls in the high-risk category and needs special accommodation, please see the campus ADA representative, housing director or other staff members as directed.

Student Organization Events

This fall all student organization events will follow state and local guidelines for health and safety.  Numbers of participants may be limited, events postponed and fewer students allowed to participate.  Online options will be made available for the enjoyment and safety of students and sponsors.  Any events that include five or more individuals gathering together will require masks to be worn even if outside a campus building.
