Montcalm Community College responds to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
MCC's Sidney and Greenville campuses are closed to the public in accordance with the Nov. 15 state shut-down order.
The health and safety of Montcalm Community College’s students, staff, visitors and those they come in contact with, as well as upholding our standards for academic quality, continue to be our top priority as we continue to work through continuing to deliver coursework during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
COVID-19 Health Screening
MCC is using the web and mobile application #CampusClear for daily COVID-19 screening. Staff and students will register with their MCC Email address. Visitors can register with a mobile phone number.
Please note the dashboard data includes Montcalm Community College students, faculty and staff, and is updated daily.
We value keeping you informed while balancing the privacy of MCC family members and adhering to guidelines outlined in the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The college will update the above counts as needed. The case count includes active, positive results of students, faculty and staff reported to the college who were on campus during the infectious time period (48 hours prior to the onset of symptoms). The college will not publicly disclose the names of those who test positive or other information about positive cases. The Student Services Department will work closely with each student who may test positive to begin MCC’s contact tracing process and to determine a plan for quarantine. If anyone on campus is found to have come into close contact with a person who tests positive, they will be contacted directly.
