Mount Safe Policies for Summer 2021 – Transition Period

The following policies are based on known information about the effectiveness of the vaccines available now and public health recommendations. We will adjust these policies as needed as public health professionals learn more about the vaccines and update their recommendations. Policies will go into effect on 5/24/2021 and remain in effect until rescinded by the President. We are depending on employees and visitors to act in good faith in following the rules and guidelines that pertain to them.

Assumptions

  • The summer will be a transition period where we expect to see employee vaccination status increasing gradually from 42% – 70% during the summer.
  • Similarly we expect visitor and student vaccination status to grow from 43% – 70% during the summer.
  • Children under 12 will not be vaccinated.
  • The Mount will continue to follow state health department and CDC guidance.

Visitors Age 12 and Over (Including Vendors / Delivery and MSMU Contracted Partners)

  • Anyone who has had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 10 days is not permitted on campus. Unvaccinated individuals who exhibit fever or 2 or more COVID-19 symptoms are not permitted on campus.
  • Visitors do not need to check in with Public Safety, do a temperature check or fill out a health survey if they are on campus for up to two consecutive days.
  • Unvaccinated visitors are encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask and maintain 6 foot distancing.
  • Unvaccinated visitors who will be on campus for more than two consecutive days as part of a group reservation must fill out a daily health form each day which includes a temperature check. This will be managed by the visiting group’s leader.
  • Unvaccinated individuals in visiting groups staying overnight will be accommodated in a single room, with a vaccinated individual, or with a person from the same household. Vaccinated individuals may share a room.

Visiting Groups with Children Under 12

  • The Mount will continue to follow the MD and CDC guidance for youth camps.
  • Because these groups are mostly or entirely unvaccinated, most of the risk reduction measures remain in place. Groups with children must submit a risk reduction plan to University Operations at least 2 weeks ahead of the event. During the check-in process each day the Group Leader will do a temperature check and collect health survey forms.
  • Masks and social distancing are required at all times for campers and camp staff except when it may interfere with breathing in intense physical exercise or if there is a medical reason.

Dining

  • Tables will remain 6 ft. apart but up to 6 people may sit at a table. This allows individuals or groups to physically distance if they choose.
  • Summer event groups will not intermingle with other groups in the dining hall.

Miscellaneous

  • Elevators – Only 1 person may ride in an elevator at a time unless the other riders are from the same household.
  • Restrooms – There are no occupancy limits in restrooms.
