Protocols for University Community

Home / About / COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan / Protocols for University Community

The Midwestern University’s Leadership Team in collaboration with University departments and academic programs has created a series of policies and procedures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Small and Large Gatherings

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has provided steps everyone can take to protect themselves and others while making gatherings safer. For more information, visit:

Daily Health Screenings

Before arriving to the Midwestern University Campus or Clinic locations all students employees, and visitors will be expected to conduct a self-administered daily health screening.   

  • To complete the Daily Health Screening, you can respond to a link that will be sent via email, each day, to your Midwestern University inbox.  You can also download the Midwestern University Health Screen icon to your mobile device for easy access to the link. Completion of this screening needs to be done prior to coming to campus, or upon arrival. 
  • Once completed, you will receive instructions to either come to campus or contact your supervisor or Dean. 

Hand Washing

People are encouraged to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, to help stop the spread of the virus. Hand sanitizing stations have been added to campus common areas and everyone is encouraged to make use of them before entering and exiting buildings and common areas.

Masks

The revised face masks requirements as it pertains to all faculty, staff, students, and visitors effective 2/28/22 are as follows:  

  • Face masks are no longer required in academic campus facilities. However, as it has always been the case, faculty, staff, and students must adhere to specific federal, local, departmental, or College policies and procedures related to personal protective equipment, including face masks and other face coverings that must be worn as part of specific job duties or academic activities. Based on this, some laboratories and simulation centers may continue to require the use of face masks and other PPE on a regular basis. 
  • In accordance with federal directives, face masks will continue to be required of faculty, staff, and students in any healthcare setting including all our Clinic facilities and applies to anyone involved in patient care.

Midwestern University will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 transmission data and all related local and federal guidelines and directives. Should the number of positive cases increase, this policy may need to be revised. Additionally, anyone who prefers to continue to wear face coverings during daily activities on and off campus, is welcome to do so. 

COVID-19 Vaccine

Midwestern University strongly encourages all incoming and current students, faculty, and staff to become vaccinated members of our healthcare community. If you haven’t received your vaccine yet, we strongly encourage you to contact one of the Midwestern University Vaccination Centers or your local health clinic to set up an appointment.
