Overall Guidance:

  • Enrolled MU Students and Young Adults (e.g. high school graduates or 18+ years) engaged in MU programs
    • Non-residential activities for individuals or groups will be allowed provided a COVID mitigation plan is in place that follows current MU, County, and CDC guidelines including social distancing, wearing face coverings, hand hygiene, and so on.
    • Need to ensure travel protocols, e.g. cars, vans, busses, trains, or planes are compliant with current public health guidelines (e.g., County and CDC guidelines) if we are “sending” people somewhere off campus for the event.
    • Residential activities for individuals or groups will be allowed if protocols are consistent with current MU, County, and CDC guidelines whether housed in an on-campus facility or off-campus at a remote location, e.g. hotel.
  • K-12 students

    • Attendance information must be collected so that case investigation and contact tracing can be facilitated should someone become symptomatic or test positive for COVID and MU is contacted by Public Health to assist regarding a group-level exposure.
    • All programs must have an isolation plan for students who become ill.
      • Symptomatic individuals should seek advice on testing from their healthcare provider.
      • Symptomatic individuals should leave the program and return home as soon as possible.
        • For same day activities in which the individual cannot leave immediately, a location for daytime isolation from other members of the group must be available to allow isolation until the symptomatic individual is able to be picked up or can leave.
      • For residential programs, isolation and quarantine plans must be in place for symptomatic individuals and their close contacts, respectively, if they cannot leave and need to remain overnight on property overseen by MU.
        • Such individuals should contact their healthcare provider regarding testing.
      • ResLife summer students will follow current MU guidance with regard to isolation and quarantine.
