Effective Jan. 17, 2022, face coverings at Moraine Park become optional.
Effective Thursday, Aug. 19, face coverings will be required while inside our buildings at Moraine Park, regardless of vaccination status.
When the campus county case numbers fall below the “very high” level, Moraine Park will lift the face coverings mandate. COVID-19-related cases on campus remain low—and we will continue to monitor both our internal and county case numbers.
In mid-June the College lifted the mandatory face-covering and distancing requirements and began making plans to reopen in the fall.
Since spring 2020:
- All classes have started and ended on time.
- Students and employees have been dedicated to personal and community safety by wearing face coverings on campus, maintaining distancing, and staying home if they feel ill.
- There have been low COVID-19 numbers on all three campuses with no significant impact on operations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced fully vaccinated people can safely resume indoor and outdoor activities without a face covering. The changes listed below become effective at Moraine Park June 14:
- Face coverings, while still encouraged in group settings, will become optional.
- The transition to the full use of classroom and meeting spaces without capacity restrictions will occur over the summer for full use by fall.
- Travel restrictions will be updated, allowing employees to resume all domestic work-related travel.
- Moraine Park facilities will become more available to the public, though reservations will still be required.
- Registration for summer semester begins April 5 and students are encouraged to register.
- Fall registration will open to returning program students April 13, new program students April 20, and non-program students May 4.
- Registration information.
- Regardless of any changes to the statewide mandate, face coverings will remain required on Moraine Park campuses indefinitely.
- Details regarding the limited in-person spring 2021 commencement ceremony announced to students, employees and the general public.
