MACC COVID-19 Statistics

This dashboard is intended to keep the community informed of reported active COVID-19 cases on and off of our campuses. Cases reported by location are only for cases that visited a campus while positive or presumed positive. Cases reported virtual/online have not been on a campus. When the college is notified that a person who has tested positive has been on one of our campuses all potential direct contacts (classmates, instructors, and staff) will be personally notified through MACC email or phone calls.

MACC is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment and providing opportunities for on campus classes for the coming school year. We have been closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 spread in the communities we serve and safety recommendations from local, state, and national public health professionals.

Currently, most of the state of Missouri is classified as being an area of high transmission for COVID-19. This rate of transmission is driven by vaccine rates below the national average and the presence of the more readily transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19. On July 27th, 2021 the Centers for Disease Control published updated recommendations for protecting people from infection with the Delta variant and curtailing its spread. Being vaccinated continues to be the best means of protecting individuals from the most serious forms of disease caused by COVID-19. The CDC also recommends that, in areas of substantial or high transmission, that everyone wear a mask when indoors in a public location.

Beginning Monday, August 2, 2021 MACC will implement the following practices:

  • Masks are required to be worn by everyone in:

    • Classrooms (speakers will be allowed to remove masks while speaking/teaching if socially distanced by 6ft.)
    • Any office or indoor space where employees are meeting with students or the public.

     

  • Unvaccinated individuals are required to wear masks when indoors at any MACC building (masks may be removed if alone in an office)

  • Masks are optional for vaccinated individuals in hallways or meetings with other MACC employees

 

MACC continues to follow current guidelines regarding quarantine and isolation. If an unvaccinated student or employee has a known exposure to a person with COVID-19 symptoms or a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, they should take the following precautions:

  • Stay home until 10 days after the last exposure. Maintain social distance (at least 6 feet) from others at all times

  • Quarantine period can be reduced to 7 days if a negative COVID-19 test result is obtained from a test administered on day 5, or later, of the quarantine period

  • Monitor for the development of symptoms

  • Avoid contact with people at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 

 

Students and employees with COVID-19, who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have been directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation and return to school or work under the following conditions:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptom onset AND

  • At least 24 hours have passed since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications AND

  • COVID-19 symptoms have improved.

 

The following applies to fully vaccinated students and employees:

  • If they’ve been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, they do not need to stay away from others and be quarantined (unless they are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 infection)

  • They should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19. If they are experiencing any of those symptoms they should stay home and away from others and get tested for the virus.

 

MACC encourages everyone to be vaccinated. Vaccination is the best way to stop the transmission of the virus, to protect the health of the college community, and to protect the health of our employees, students, and their families. If you have not been vaccinated, you can find local vaccination providers at this link: https://www.vaccines.gov/search/. More information will also be shared in the near future regarding opportunities to receive vaccinations on MACC campuses this Fall.

We encourage you to upload an image of your COVID-19 vaccination record/card through our secure document imaging system starting on Wednesday, August 4. More details will be shared next week. By providing your vaccine information, we will be able to gauge vaccination levels. This data will be valuable in evaluating the need to continue campus masking rules. Participants will also receive an Armed Up Against COVID swag box and be eligible for weekly prize drawings. Drawings will begin in late August and continue through the fall semester. If you don’t want to share your vaccination information, we encourage you to participate in a survey we will be sending employees and students next week.
