- Remember to social distance.
- Wash hands frequently.

The following protocols are currently in place:
- Masks are currently not required but may be worn at the discretion of an individual. Mitchell College may make changes in guidelines and policies in the future, including reinstating a mask mandate based on the level of spread in the community and on campus.
Alert Level Descriptions
Alert Level 1 (Green)
This is considered the College’s COVID-19 “normal” level with vaccines widely available. Here, the College is fully populated with students, faculty and staff and operating with some protocols in place that address the existence of COVID-19. This baseline state of operations may change as the circumstances with COVID-19 improve or if the prevalence of COVID-19 changes on campus, in the region and in the state.
Alert Level 2 (Yellow)
This alert level indicates that operations need to be modified, though the number of individuals testing positive for COVID-19 is still manageable and contact tracing suggests that exposures are confined to a small number of people. Effective contact tracing remains possible, and there is confidence in the ability to contain, isolate and remediate small clusters. Here, the campus continues to be populated with faculty, staff and students with adjustments to baseline operations in order to reduce density and in-person contacts.
Alert Level 3 (Orange)
This alert level indicates that on-campus operations must be reduced in response to a rising number of both positive tests and potential exposures. Isolation capacity is decreasing and confidence in the ability to complete contact tracing is moderate. As a result, parts of the College or the entire campus may need to shift into “cautionary quarantine” to limit movement on campus and minimize in-person contact.
Alert Level 4 (Red)
This alert level indicates the need for significantly reducing campus operations to a minimum, with students either operating in a remote learning format on-campus or transitioning to off-campus remote. The College shifts to this alert level when there is ongoing campus or community transmission occurring at an accelerating rate and there are limited strategies to contain or control the spread of COVID-19.
