In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Missouri State released a Return to Campus Guide on July 6. Since then, they’ve added some updates and additions.
This guide is here to let MCHHS students know what to expect when they return on August 17.
Masks must be worn in all buildings on campus this fall.
Read the full masking policy.
In the event that an individual cannot wear a Mask due to an underlying disability, they may initiate the university’s interactive accommodations process in order to request a “reasonable accommodation. Students who wish to request an accommodation may contact the Disability Resource Center, located in Meyer Library, Suite 111, and available at DRC@MissouriState.edu; 417-836-4192; or TTY (417) 836-2792.
Students who have not been granted an accommodation and who refuse to wear a mask while in the classroom or other academic settings are subject to administrative withdrawal, consistent with Op3.04-11 Class Disruption. Additionally, students who fail to comply with this policy in areas outside the classroom or other academic settings are subject to disciplinary action consistent with the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
If you show symptoms and need to get tested:
You must first be assessed by a physician. Options for assessment by a physician include:
- Contact Magers at 417-836-4000.
- After hours, contact the Mercy Nurse On-Call at 417-820-6055.
- Contact your primary care provider.
- In case of medical emergency, go to a local hospital emergency room or call 911.
COVID-19 testing is available on campus at Magers for students, faculty and staff who have been referred by a physician for testing. If you have insurance, your insurance company will be billed for the test. If you do not have insurance or if your insurance does not pay for the entire cost of the test, the university will not bill you for the balance.
Additional information about testing, including information about other testing locations in the Springfield area, can be found on the Springfield-Greene County Health Department’s webpage.
Missouri State is also tracking confirmed cases on campus.
Keep an eye on your class schedule.
Your method of instruction may have changed since you registered, so do a check of your detailed schedule. You can find your detailed schedule under the registration tab in My Missouri State.
Any relevant updates will be added to this guide as we approach the first day of class.
Additional information can be found on Missouri State’s COVID-19 webpage.
