Stay 6 feet apart

Wash your hands

Monitor symptoms


We’ve implemented a number of policies and procedures for our UM System employees and our MU students, faculty and staff aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. Our guiding principle is to promote and support the safety of the entire MU community. We are closely monitoring public health guidelines and have developed protocols and behaviors individuals can follow to keep themselves and others safe.

These current Show Me Renewal precautions and updated CDC guidance can help keep you and others safe:

  • Monitor for symptoms: Faculty, staff and students are required to monitor their health on a daily basis. Download the #CampusClear app on your smartphone if you haven’t already.
  • Stay home when needed: If you are feeling unwell, experiencing any unusual symptoms that may be related to COVID-19 or if you have been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, do not come to work.
  • Quarantine effectively: New CDC guidelines indicate additional options to reduce quarantine timelines for contacts of those diagnosed with COVID-19. Follow your health care provider’s guidance regarding isolation/quarantine periods.
  • As always, maintain social distancing, wear your face covering and follow other Show Me Renewal guidelines.
