COVID-19: Exposure Prevention & Response

Everyone has a role in keeping our campus safe and healthy. When you are on campus this fall, please review MHC's exposure prevention and response plan which is intended to:

  • Minimize the risk of exposure and transmission of the COVID-19 virus on campus
  • Provide awareness and information regarding the symptoms, and corresponding preventative and control measures to reduce exposure and transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
  • Provide for rapid response if an individual develops symptoms of illness while on campus or if there is a confirmed case linked to MHC.
  • Communicate and outline expectations of all persons accessing the campus.
