If you don't meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions against COVID-19 until you are fully vaccinated.
In preparation for employees and students returning safely, we will continue to implement campus-wide safety measures in adherence to pertinent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and MS State Department of Health (MSDH) guidance, as required by the State of Mississippi.
Our knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 are evolving. As such, the College will update the campus-wide safety guidance as more informed public health information and data become available to effectively and efficiently reduce/prevent virus transmission among employees and students and maintain healthy business operations and working and learning environment. The outlined safety measures are intended to guide departments/divisions to return employees, and students safely Fall 2021, with the understanding that any significant, adverse change in COVID-19 transmission and mortality rate within the state may result in a substantial and abrupt shift in College guidance and requirements.
