Pledge to Keep MMC Healthy

Join the effort to keep all Griffins safe!

In order to protect the health and safety of our MMC community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage all students, faculty, and staff to join in our efforts to prevent the spread and to take the Pledge to Keep MMC Healthy.

We take responsibility for our own health and actions, and we pledge to do the following to protect ourselves and others, in a mutual, continuous effort to keep our community safe from COVID-19.

  • Wash my hands frequently for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not available.
  • Always wear a face covering or mask in shared spaces, especially when in the presence of others.
  • Avoid touching my eyes, nose, and mouth, and cover any coughs and/or sneezes with a tissue or inner elbow.
  • Maintain six feet of distance from others during all physical activities whenever possible, and prioritize virtual meetings and socializing.
  • Regularly disinfect my workspace and personal items. Mitigate the spread of germs on doors, railings, and other high contact areas through frequent cleaning.
  • Continuously monitor for symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19 through the MMC Daily Self-Health Monitoring Questionnaire.
  • Comply with MMC’s screening procedures and remain off campus if I answer “yes” to any of the screening questions.
  • Stay home if I feel ill or after having exposure to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Notify the College immediately at if I feel ill or have been exposed to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19, so proper precautions can be taken.
  • Actively participate in testing and contract tracing to preserve the wellness of the community.
  • Behave responsibly when not on College premises by wearing a mask and practicing social distancing, as well as refraining from engaging in COVID-19 risk-associated behavior.
  • Avoid bias discrimination and discriminatory behaviors and treat other students, faculty, and staff with the respect every human being deserves, understanding that the virus does not distinguish on race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or physical ability.
  • Recognize that this is a stressful and overwhelming time and do what I can to remain helpful and attentive to those who may need support.
  • Employ patience and understanding, knowing that this is a dynamic situation.
