COVID-19 self-assessment
All MCC employees must complete a daily health screening before entering campus. You can answer screening questions at an authorized campus entrance checkpoint or, to save time, you can complete the screening online (click on button above) or via the MCC mobile app.

NEW! Requirements for Those Assigned to Teach/Work Remotely

If you are ASSIGNED to teach/work remotely, STAY remote. Effective Oct. 16, if you are assigned to teach/work remotely, you must receive permission from a President’s Cabinet representative (request form) and a negative COVID-19 test* within 14 days of your approved campus visit date.

If you are assigned to work on campus under your office/department approved reopening plan, you are NOT required to get a COVID-19 test 14 days before coming to campus. You are encouraged to participate in pooled testing. This might include those of you who check mail on behalf of your department or perform other duties in person on campus on an intermittent basis. If you are unsure, please check with your supervisor.

  • Employees assigned to work on campus are encouraged to call Public Safety at (585) 292-8310 to schedule a pooled testing appointment.

  • You must register on the SUNY Upstate Medical University site prior to testing. Instructions are available on the Pooled Testing web page. Staff will be onsite to assist you if needed.

  • Capacity for employee testing is currently 100 employees per week. If that limit is reached and your appointment is scheduled for the following week, it will not impact your ability to come to or work on campus.

*Free COVID-19 testing is available at the NYS Department of Public Health Drive-through Testing Site on MCC's Brighton Campus. Tests are free for New Yorkers at this site. Call 1-888-364-3065 to schedule an appointment.

If you test positive for COVID-19, immediately contact Kristin Lowe, MCC Human Resources, by email or call (585) 292-2048.

Working Together to Deliver Quality Educational Services & Keep People Safe

In our efforts to respond to the pandemic, Monroe Community College has taken a measured approach, keeping the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff at the forefront. College decisions are guided by information from Governor Andrew Cuomo, SUNY, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, and the state and local departments of health. The College continues to act in the best interests of our students and employees, in harmony with the College’s core values.

MCC operating principles are available on the Coronavirus Updates web page.

Access to Campus

Do not come to campus unless designated to do so. Guests are not allowed on campus at this time. If you are assigned to teach/work on campus this fall, access to campus buildings will be through authorized entrance checkpoints at the Applied Technologies Center, Brighton Campus and Downtown Campus. Questions? Contact us via email.

Entry to the Brighton Campus is limited to the Spina Administration Building, first floor (lower level sliding glass doors only until further notice. Employees may park in lot K at the Brighton Campus. Students may park in lot A in order to be closer to the authorized entrance checkpoint. Additional parking information was shared in the MCC Daily Tribune.

In order to enter campus, you must complete a COVID-19 self-assessment online or in person, scan your MCC ID, and wear a mask while on campus. Build in extra time to reach your office or classroom. Estimate it will take you an additional 10-15 minutes to reach your on-campus destination. 

Safe Restart of On-campus Operations

This fall, a limited number of courses and labs are being offered in-person at the Brighton Campus, Downtown Campus, Applied Technologies Center, and Public Safety Training Facility. The fall 2020 academic calendar remains unchanged and runs from Aug. 26 to Dec. 16.

The College’s reopening is guided by three fundamental principles: 1) the health, safety and well-being of students and employees; 2) the college’s core teaching and learning mission; and 3) responsiveness to changing conditions and community needs and expectations.

College-related Travel Ban Continues

At this time and until further notice, there is a ban on all MCC-related travel. Rare exceptions to this travel ban require approval from both your divisional vice presidential and the MCC interim president.

Face Coverings Required When On Campus

In accordance with New York state and Monroe County guidelines, wearing face coverings when in public and on campus, especially when you can’t maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet from others, is an important part of reducing the spread of the coronavirus and making sure our region can continue reopening.

MCC's face covering protocol states that all individuals will wear adequate face coverings when on campus unless you are:

  • alone in an enclosed space.
  • outdoors in an environment where proper social distancing is practiced.
  • or consuming food or a beverage in designated location.

Wearing a face covering will keep you from spreading the virus to others. Social distancing should be practiced even while wearing a mask.
