Montcalm Community College responds to COVID-19
The health and safety of Montcalm Community College’s students, staff, visitors and those they come in contact with, as well as upholding our standards for academic quality, continue to be our top priority as we continue to work through continuing to deliver coursework while navigating COVID-19.
We are back in person for fall 2021 semester at MCC, with some basic guidelines:
- We are not requiring you to be vaccinated for COVID-19 unless your program of study has this specific requirement.
- We are asking that everyone share in the responsibility of creating a healthy community at the college and encourage you to wear a mask while inside our buildings. We are requiring our employees to wear a mask when they are unable to socially distance. One exception is during class, presenters are not required to wear a mask.
- At this time we will not be requiring a daily health check-in, nor will we have monitors at the doors. All building entrances will be open.

We value keeping you informed while balancing the privacy of MCC family members and adhering to guidelines outlined in the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The case count includes active, positive results of students, faculty and staff reported to the college who were on campus during the infectious time period (48 hours prior to the onset of symptoms). The college will not publicly disclose the names of those who test positive or other information about positive cases. The Student Services Department will work closely with each student who may test positive to begin MCC’s contact tracing process and to determine a plan for quarantine. If anyone on campus is found to have come into close contact with a person who tests positive, they will be contacted directly.
