When On Campus

    • Disinfectant spray, towels, wipes and gloves will be placed in all areas. Users should wipe down surface areas before and after use .
    • Example: A classroom is used for a staff meeting. Employees should wipe surfaces prior to sitting down and clean once the meeting has ended.
    • This would be the same for a class. Students should clean the area that they will be sitting in .
    • Employees: Order cleaning supplies through Central Stores .


Safety and Cleaning

  • NMC will clean all public spaces following CDC recommendations for disinfecting spaces and high-touch point surfaces.

  • NMC will provide barriers in designated higher-risk areas, such as service counters.

  • For Notification of positive COVID-19 cases on campus:

    • NMC will work with the Grand Traverse County Health Department (GTCHD) on contact tracing. This process is important to comply with all privacy laws and to accurately communicate necessary facts to others. GTCHD will notify the college of any positive test results that involve any students or employees.
    • If an employee or student is not within GTCHD jurisdiction, NMC will work with the appropriate health department to confirm test results and conduct contact tracing.
