Classrooms, labs, residence halls and public spaces have been reconfigured in accordance with the recommended safety guidelines and social distancing protocols, but the St. Mary’s College environment for students to learn, study and thrive remains.
- Signage and physical markers will be placed throughout campus to assist with compliance of social distancing protocols. Plexiglas, hands-free doors and disinfection stations will be installed throughout campus, further ensuring the safety of students, staff and faculty.
- Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting has taken place in accordance with all federal, state and county public health guidance and directives in preparation for the return of students.
- Detailed daily cleaning and disinfecting protocols have been developed and will continue throughout the semester to mitigate any potential COVID-19 spread.
- Each student and employee will receive an SMCM drawstring bag containing enough masks, gloves, and sanitizer to last throughout the entire fall semester, as well as an individual thermometer for daily personal temperature readings.
Major campus events will be reimagined, minimizing visitors to campus by adopting virtual technologies or smaller gatherings instead of holding large on-campus and traditional major events such as Opening Convocation, Hawktoberfest, etc.
All College-related travel will be strictly limited.
