Personal Risk Assessment

Updated 1/17/2022

For Faculty, Staff, and Students

* You do not need to track your symptoms daily; however, if you are NOT feeling well, complete the symptom tracker immediately. This is the most efficient way to notify Cougar Care of your status. They will advise you of next steps. A link to the symptom tracker is available on myMU.

As of January 18, 2022, we ask everyone to upgrade their masks to a 3-ply surgical mask, a KN95, N95 or similar (there are many other types that are acceptable). Cloth masks and neck gaiters are no longer acceptable as masks at this time. Experts are advising that we upgrade masks to help prevent the specific omicron variant from spreading.

Please remember the three W's: 1. always wear a mask when you are not alone in a private space. 2. Wash your hands often, and 3. watch your physical distancing from others, both on campus and off. If we limit our risk and maximize the many preventative steps we take,  our campus can be successful in containing the spread of COVID-19.

We encourage all faculty, staff, and students to be vaccinated and boosted. If you are not vaccinated, you MUST complete a COVID safety agreement immediately. Contact Cougar Care for a copy of the agreement.

 

Campus Access Procedures for Vendors and Visitors

Misericordia University takes pride in maintaining a safe and healthy campus community, and the university asks all vendors and approved visitors to join us in this effort. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Misericordia University has taken steps to protect the health of our students, staff, faculty and community.

 We must continue to work together and to focus on caring for one another.  Therefore, Misericordia University has put in place safety protocols and we ask all community members, including visitors, to respectfully comply. It is everyone’s responsibility to help protect the community against COVID-19. Individuals refusing to comply may be asked to leave campus by Campus Safety & Security.

Regardless of vaccination status, if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, or are positive for COVID-19, please do NOT come to campus.

MASK Requirements:
The University is requiring all guests to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Approved MASKS include three-ply surgical masks or KN95 (or similar, there are various such as N95, KF94, etc.). Cloth masks and neck gaiters are not acceptable. Masks are required indoors in all settings at all times.

If you are on campus and do not have an approved mask, please contact Campus Safety at 570-674-6300. They may be able to assist.

Please contact cougarcare@misericordia.edu if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community healthy and safe.
