Fall Semester

August 1, 2021 kicks off Phase 5 of our COVID-19 Plan at Mid-State Technical College. As we look forward to bringing students back for Fall Semester on August 23, 2021, we have planned the return to pre-pandemic operations in many ways. One thing that stays constant is the COVID-19 Response Team and their work to meet, monitor, adjust and communicate changes in the harm reduction protocol related to the six readiness essentials: building readiness, student & staff readiness, facility access readiness, social distancing readiness, campus hygiene readiness and communication readiness. Additionally, the College will continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), and our local health departments.

Here are our Phase 5 details:

ONGOING PROTOCOL/SERVICES

  • The College will continue to follow CDC and local health department recommendations and ask that all staff & students also follow CDC recommendations as well as participate in our “mask friendly environment” by respecting those that wear masks
  • Sanitizing stations located in each campus SSIC, as well as other select locations, will be equipped with a mask supply bin for those electing to wear masks
  • Plexiglass barriers will remain
  • Classrooms will be cleaned and disinfected each day
  • Student reporting of COVID-19 symptoms (webform)
  • Staff reporting of COVID-19 symptoms to Human Resources (via email)
  • I-CARE support phone line
  • COVID-19 college website will continue to be maintained here

PROTOCOL/SERVICES CHANGES AS OF AUGUST 1, 2021

  • Full staff transition back to campus
  • Class and room capacity will resume to pre-COVID-19 capacity
  • Computer Labs, Campus Lounges and Common Spaces open to full capacity

We will continue to meet, monitor, adjust and communicate changes in our harm reduction protocol as they relate to the six readiness essentials: building readiness, student & staff readiness, facility access readiness, social distancing readiness, campus hygiene readiness and communication readiness.  I look forward to Fall 2021 where we will continue our mission of transforming lives through the power of teaching and learning.

Moving Forward Together,

Dr. Shelly Mondeik
