Pandemic Plan Update - Summer 2022

Dear MCAD Community,

Our Pandemic Plan has been updated for Summer 2022.

The most significant change is our approach to Isolation/Quarantine procedures (Section 3.4).

Previously, a person that tested Covid-positive was required to isolate/quarantine automatically for a period of 10 full days. Our updated procedures are closer to current CDC & MDH guidelines.

Our current procedures are as follows:

  1. If you test positive for Covid-19, notify us at staysafe@mcad.edu.
  2. If you are vaccinated, your quarantine will last for a minimum of 5 full days (6 calendar days) starting from the day you first noticed symptoms or from the day you took your test, whichever came first. In order to return to campus, you must have a definitively negative Covid-19 test result. If you still test positive, your quarantine period will be extended for another 5 days or until you test negative.
  3. If you are unvaccinated, your quarantine period will last for 10 full days (11 calendar days) starting from the day you first noticed symptoms or from the day you took your test, whichever came first.

The updated MCAD Pandemic Plan is available on the intranet at the "All MCAD COVID-19 Updates" tab, just below the headers at the top of the page.

If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to us at staysafe@mcad.edu.

Thank you.
