Top 5 Things to Know: June 1 Update

  1. Thank you for taking summer classes at MCC! The following health and safety protocols are required and will protect you if you take in-person classes or use in-person services during Summer Session at MCC:

    • take daily COVID-19 self-assessments before entering campus buildings
    • wear face coverings
    • socially distance
    • frequently wash your hands

  2. If you are unable to participate in pooled testing 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Tuesday June 1 (the first day of Summer Session I), you must test next Monday, June 7 or Tuesday, June 8.
  3. During Summer Session, pooled testing sessions will be offered on Monday afternoons and Tuesday morning's at the Brighton Campus. (No appointments necessary.)
  4. While SUNY and MCC strongly encourage you to get vaccinated to protect yourself, your family, and our community, you are not required to be vaccinated at this time. (The requirement is contingent on final Food and Drug Administration’s approval of a COVID-19 vaccine.) Many vaccination sites offer walk-in services. Even after you have received the COVID-19 vaccine, you must continue to test and follow MCC health and safety guidelines.
  5. MCC will offer more in-person classes this fall. We will share our SUNY-approved Fall Semester 2021 plan soon.

COVID-19 Vaccines Info

While we strongly encourage you to consider getting a COVID-19 vaccination to protect yourself, your family and our community, SUNY and MCC do not require immunization. Even after you have received the vaccine, you will be expected to adhere to all health and safety protocols. Until further notice, weekly testing is still required following vaccination if you take in-person classes or use in-person services. MCC is not a vaccination site. 

More information on vaccines and safety protocols can be found on the following websites:

Only individuals who complete a COVID-19 self-assessment, scan in with an MCC ID, and wear face covering will be allowed to enter.

Face Coverings & Social Distancing Required on Campus

Wearing face coverings (masks) is an important part of reducing the spread of the coronavirus. Face coverings (masks) are required on campus (inside and outside) unless you are alone in an enclosed space such as an office with a closed door. 

Campus Events: Reservation Process Suspended

Reservation processing for on-campus, internal events is suspended as per the Governor’s Higher Education Summary Guidelines. The Campus Events application process for external clients has also been suspended until further notice.

MCC Athletics Update

All MCC student-athletes must adhere to sport-specific guidelines and protocols developed collectively by the SUNY community colleges that are NJCAA members. The guidelines are informed by governing athletic associations and consistent with federal, state and local directives. Each college’s plans for returning to play or compete are dependent on local COVID-19 infection rates and their respective local health department’s approval.
