coronavirus information

Welcome to MxCC! We’re so happy to have you here.
Please see below for COVID-19 protocol changes, effective April 4, 2022.

VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS

Vaccines are no longer mandated for students or employees beginning with the summer semester. However, individuals are encouraged to be vaccinated and to get booster shots as recommended to protect their own health. CSCU reserves the right to revisit this should local health conditions change on the campuses.

MASKS

As of April 4, the mask mandate will come to an end and campuses/system office will shift to a “mask-optional” protocol.  We fully support and expect all employees and students to respect those who choose to continue wearing masks. Visitors will no longer be required to wear masks in CSCU buildings.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING

As of April 4, physical distancing restrictions have been removed in areas such as lounges, cafeterias, conference rooms, and other non-academic setting. However, in most instances, current classroom arrangements will remain as set for the remainder of the semester.

In-person activities are being planned for the spring including commencements and other special events and a full schedule of in-person courses, meetings, convenings, etc. is being planned for the summer and fall.

TESTING

As of April 4, weekly testing of employees and students and individual case contact tracing have ended. However, antigen tests are available from COVID Coordinators for those who are concerned about their potential exposure to the virus and would like access to a rapid test.

Employees and students should continue to self-monitor their health and stay home whenever they have COVID-like symptoms and follow current CDC guidance on quarantine and isolation.

Employees and students who test positive should continue to Self-Report (see form below) by following the campus process for notification. Human Resources, Health Services, or the COVID Coordinator, as appropriate, will determine the quarantine and isolation expectations, confirm when it is safe to return to campus or classes, and notify close contacts as needed.

Through the state’s Community Testing Program, all residents have robust access to no-cost COVID-19 testing through multiple hospital, community health center and other pop-up sites. Results through this program are available within 72 hours or less in the vast majority of cases. At this time, insurance is not required though some providers may recommend appointments or pre-registration to facilitate expedited testing. It is recommended to verify hours and clinic sites on the vendor’s website or social media in the event that sites have changed or closed for weather, etc.
