To best protect members of our community, as of August 1, 2021, all students, faculty and staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to be enrolled in or employed at Maine College of Art & Design, unless approval has been received for a qualified exemption. Regular COVID-19 testing also remains an important element of our health management strategy: all students, faculty, and staff are participating in weekly testing throughout the semester to ensure early identification of potential cases, thereby allowing us to conduct contact tracing and to implement prevention and control measures to reduce further transmission.

We are also currently requiring all members of our community to wear a cloth face mask upon entrance to all MECA&D facilities and at all times in shared spaces regardless of vaccination status. Masks may be removed when alone in studio/majors spaces, private offices, or while eating.

As guidance from the CDC and Maine health officials continues to evolve, we are prepared to make any changes to our policies and procedures necessary to prioritize the health and safety of all MECA&D students, faculty, and staff.
