As we navigate the changes brought on by COVID-19, Maine’s community colleges are focused on the health and safety of our students, employees, and communities.
Currently about 30 percent of our instruction is in-person, for essential hands-on learning, and about 70 percent is offered remotely. We prepared for this by investing time and money into enhancing our remote instruction resources, preparing our physical spaces, and creating a strong online network for student supports.
If you are among those coming to one of our campuses, there are a few things you need to know.
Daily screenings: All students and employees must successfully pass a daily health screening app. The link was emailed to students and employees, and you can download the app from your college’s COVID-19 information page. If you can’t access the app, allow for extra time so you can complete the survey at an entry point when you arrive. If you do not successfully clear the app, please go to our Health Screening Information page and follow the instructions there.
Face coverings: Everyone on campus needs a face covering that meets safety standards. Please review our face covering protocols.
COVID readiness training: Everyone in our community is asked to take a short COVID readiness training course, because we’re #InItTogether. Students were emailed information about the training, and can access the course on Brightspace.
Stay safe: Follow the common-sense protocols of wearing face coverings, maintaining a safe physical distance from others and following posted and verbal health and safety instructions. Find additional health information at our Health FAQ.
Report COVID-19 symptoms or test results: If you have tested positive for COVID-19, have symptoms, or think you’ve been exposed, we need to know as soon as possible so we can help you and the people around you. Please follow the instructions HERE.
