Spring 2022 Trimester

  • Moore Tech will not be instituting a mask mandate unless the federal, state, or local government requires it.
  • Absence from class will only be excused with the presentation, on DAY 1 or 2 of illness, with a positive COVID-19 test  to the instructors
  • Isolation after a positive test, regardless of vaccination status, is 5 days. 
  • Exposure to someone with COVID is no longer a reason for isolation and quarantine, therefore contact tracing is not necessary. 
  • Students must understand that ONLY a positive test will provide an EXCUSED absence for the required 5 days of isolation. 
  • After 5 days of isolation Staff and Students do not need to have a negative test to return to campus. 
  • In addition, those individuals who do test positive and return after isolation MUST continue wearing a mask for an additional 5 days.  
  • We understand that certain individuals are at higher risk and encourage those individuals to wear a mask as they see fit while on campus. 

This protocol will serve as the policy for all Moore Tech employees as well. Please contact your immediate supervisor if you have tested positive for COVID. We will update the policy as needed based on the CDC guidelines. Please stay safe everyone. 

We would like to ensure that the students understand this, but need your help disseminating the guidelines. Please use your best judgment when accepting test results, we do not want to discourage the use of home tests, as we understand that not all students are able to get to a physician for a PCR test. You know your students best.  We encourage everyone to visit the link below to read the full scope of the latest COVID-19 recommendations.
