The MVC Safe Reopening Plan addresses needed safety and policy changes to courses with in-person learning. Our safe return principles include:

  1. Ensure the safety and well being of students and employees
  2. Meet student needs for equitable access to quality instruction and student support services
  3. Support instructional needs for the delivery of high-quality courses
  4. Ensure resource availability to support all instruction and services

While College services are open for in-person use, students, employees and the community must follow all safety protocols.

  1. Report cases of positive COVID-19 tests or instances of close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual to help with contact tracing and campus safety.
  2. Testing is available on campus, for free. Tests may take up to two days to process.

Timely reporting helps prevent further spread of COVID-19. All employees and students are required to immediately report if they have tested positive for COVID-19, experience COVID-19 symptoms, or have been identified as a close contact of an infected person.
