Updated Face Covering Protocol - January 6, 2022

Face Covering Protocol (1/6/2022-3/8/2022)

A face covering is required to be worn over the nose, mouth and chin indoors in all indoor public and shared/communal spaces, and outdoors when in a dense crowd, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings are also required to be worn in vehicles with more than one occupant during MCCS-related travel.

Exceptions to the face covering requirement are:

Employees when alone in an office or other personal workspace, with the door closed; Residential students when in their own bedroom in campus housing when only the assigned occupants of that bedroom are present; When eating or drinking in a space where eating and drinking is permitted and only for the duration necessary to consume the food and/or beverage. The colleges may impose additional rules governing eating and drinking in order to meet operational and health and safety needs; and Children under 5 in a daycare setting and all other children under 2 years of age.

Updated Vaccine Protocol Requires Booster Shots - December 21, 2021

Under updated COVID safety protocols announced Tuesday, Maine’s community colleges are requiring COVID-19 booster shots for all students participating in on-campus programs.

The Maine Community College System (MCCS) already requires COVID-19 vaccinations for all students attending classes in person or participating in athletic functions. Students who are fully remote and are never inside a campus facility do not require proof of vaccination.

The updated protocol, announced December 21, requires all Maine community college students to provide proof of a booster shot no later than one month after becoming eligible for a booster. Under CDC guidelines, a person is eligible to get a booster shot six months after the last shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two months after the J&J vaccination.

“We remain committed to doing everything possible to protect the health of our community and minimize the disruption caused by COVID-19,” said MCCS President David Daigler.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement - August 12, 2021

Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases and the latest information about the Delta variant, the Board of Trustees of the Maine Community College System (MCCS) have voted to implement a vaccine protocol requiring all students attending classes in person at all Maine Community Colleges to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  

All WCCC students must provide proof they received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine prior to attending their first in-person class. Students who require a second dose of a vaccine must provide proof of the second dose no later than 30 days from the date of their first in-person class. Spring 2022 classes begin January 10, 2022. Students who are fully remote and will not be entering campus buildings for any purpose will not need to submit their vaccination documentation.
