Moraine Park Technical College is planning for a full return for the fall 2021 semester–with a fully open and operating campuses. Classes begin Monday, Aug. 23. This fall, more than 90 percent of classes will be offered in-person, with many virtual options still available.
Effective Thursday, Aug. 19, face coverings will be required while inside our buildings at Moraine Park, regardless of vaccination status. This comes in response to one of our three campus counties reaching the “very high” indicator on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) COVID-19 Disease Activity report.
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.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the best way to protect yourself against the virus is to get vaccinated. Vaccines are not currently mandatory at Moraine Park; however, they are recommended. Visit vaccines.gov to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccination availability.
Employees, students, and visitors are expected to keep their health—and the health of others—top of mind when coming to any campus. The guidance remains the same: stay home if you are ill; practice good personal hygiene and distancing when possible; and know that Moraine Park is committed to health and safety through rigorous cleaning throughout its facilities.
