Health & Counseling Services

MMA’s public health protocols are subject to change as the COVID-19 situation in Maine continues to evolve. At this time, indoor masking is not required. However, those individuals who are returning from isolation status or have been exposed to a positive case must continue to follow CDC masking guidelines as described below.

Due to the higher transmissibility of the Omicron variant, all students, including those who are fully vaccinated, should have a plan for isolating at home or off-campus. Isolation housing on campus is very limited and reserved for those residential students who are are unable to travel home due to distance.

Please note that decisions relating to MMA’s health and safety protocols are dependent on caseloads in the state and are developed in consultation with Maine CDC and our partners at Northern Light Health. Masking requirements are subject to change and may evolve rapidly over time.
