THIS PAGE WILL BE UPDATED WITH ANY INFORMATION RELEVANT TO THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE MOUNT MARTY CAMPUS AS IT IS RELEASED.
Administration and campus partners have been monitoring, evaluating and vetting the best options to fit our unique needs. Our response is MMUnited. The Spring 2022 COVID-19 Campus Plan is designed to create the safest possible environment for our entire community to continue learning, living and growing this fall. And, as the name stipulates, it relies on the entirety of our community uniting together under the shared goal of protecting one another. Please review the plan in its entirety and familiarize yourself with the information, as it will be guiding much of our semester together at Mount Marty University.
As one united community, we have the strength to overcome any obstacle. This fall, that sentiment will be put to the test. For it is only with mutual commitment and cooperation to these safety measures can they effectively protect our community of faculty, staff, students and neighbors. But we have no doubt that our Lancer community will rise, united, to the occasion.
Together we are MMUnited.
Mount Marty COVID-19 Dashboard
For the last 18 months or so, MMU maintained a daily COVID-19 dashboard that listed the numbers of known faculty, staff and student cases. Moving forward, we will transition to a new reporting method. Instead of daily reports, we will include a weekly report as part of President Long's This Week at the Mount email. This report will list the current levels of infection (low, medium or high) and describe the current COVID infection trend (e.g. steady, moving up or moving down).
Information for those impacted by COVID-19:
If you feel you are sick or if you have been impacted by COVID-19, notify Dean of Students Katie Harrell and isolate yourself until formal medical consultation and diagnosis is confirmed.
We will work with you to determine the best routes for continuing your coursework and eventually returning to class. Should you be required to remain isolated on campus, all provisions for your care and comfort will be provided.
At this time, we remind students to continue practicing good hygiene and to remain home if you are feeling ill.
If you are feeling sick or if you or a member of your household has been impacted by COVID-19, notify the Dean of Students, Katie Harrell, and the Director of Human Resources, Julie Dather. They will be in contact with you regarding necessary steps.
At this time, we remind our faculty and staff to continue practicing good hygiene and to remain home if you are feeling ill.
