Welcome Back!

Please take a moment to review our COVID-19 campus policies.

1. Vaccine Registry

  • Please complete the vaccination registry whether you are vaccinated or not. If you are vaccinated, you will need to provide an image of your vaccination card. You can provide this by clicking here. Students who complete the registry by September 16 will be entered into a drawing for two $500 Mount Mary scholarships!
  • A decision has not yet been made on requiring vaccinations but that could change and we encourage all to get vaccinated for the start of this school year.
  • We will remain wearing masks on campus until we have achieved an 80% vaccination rate for all students and employees so please do your part to get vaccinated and complete the registry.

2. Vaccine Clinics
Mount Mary will host an upcoming vaccine clinic on campus in the North Dining Hall on Thursday, Sept. 16 from noon-2 p.m. Any student, faculty or staff who present a valid vaccination card and their MMU ID will be provided with a free lunch.

3. Class Meetings
All classes will meet according to the modality listed in the bulletin (online, hybrid or on campus). Students are expected to attend classes in the modality listed.

4. COVID Reporting

  • If you have COVID-19 related symptoms, have tested positive, or have had significant exposure to someone who has tested positive, you must complete the COVID Symptom Screening. DO NOT come to campus until you have clearance from Amy Dedow, the COVID-19 Response Coordinator (CRC).
  • If you are fully vaccinated, you MAY not have to quarantine, but you do have to complete the COVID Symptom Screening and be approved to return to campus by the CRC.
  • You DO NOT have to complete the daily screen unless you have symptoms or are exposed.
  • If someone is in quarantine because the COVID Coordinator has designated it as necessary, faculty will receive communication about quarantine start and end dates and students will need to have course modifications during that window of time.

5. Classroom Cleanings
Classrooms, per new CDC guidelines, will be cleaned daily. Supplies will remain in classrooms for anyone who wishes to clean more frequently.

6. Social Distancing
Social distancing will be 3-feet on campus and students will be asked to sit in the same place in classrooms. In instances where this is not possible, additional precautions, such as use of PPE, will be expected.

7. Masks
All employees and students will wear masks indoors on campus in public spaces and in classrooms until the campus hits 80% vaccination of all faculty, staff and students. Masks can be removed if you are alone in a personal space only, not in public spaces.

8. Campus Events and Meetings
Campus events and meetings may be booked on campus indoors and outdoors as long as groups follow the protocols in place at the time of the event for room capacity, social distancing, food/beverage expectations and any other campus COVID protocols in place.

9. Residence Halls
Policies for residence hall occupancy will be modified as follows:

  • As possible, COVID quarantine rooms will remain available for students who wish to remain on campus if they have COVID. They will, however, need to follow the same protocols as in the past when in quarantine. In the event designated quarantine rooms are full, arrangements for students will be made on a case by case basis.
  • Visitors will be allowed in on-campus housing, but they must answer the COVID Symptom Screening without a red stop sign before entering on-campus housing. Proof of completion of the form may be required by residence life and front desk staff of any visitors. No more than two guests per roommate will be allowed in student rooms at the same time.

10. Changes to this Plan
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 in Milwaukee and on our campus throughout the fall. The policies outlined above may need to change based on the situation at the time and we’ll keep the entire community updated if that is the case.
