If you are feeling ill or have a fever, do not come to campus. Call Student Health Services at 573-341-4284. Health officers will work with you on how to get tested for COVID-19, if indicated, and give isolation and quarantine guidance. See below for the latest information or visit our FAQ page.
Missouri S&T has issued the Miner Roadmap for Fall 2020 as a comprehensive guide for students and their families as students return to campus. Please ensure students review the guidance before they arrive on campus. Many of S&T’s operations and student requirements are changing to make campus safer for every student, faculty member, staff member and visitor. The fall 2020 semester changes include:
Missouri S&T Student Health Services will order testing for any student that providers feel need to be tested. If a test is ordered through Student Health Services, the staff will notify the patient of their results and provide guidance on what to do next. The staff will provide results in coordination with the local health department.
While waiting for COVID-19 results, the patient will need to quarantine. Student Health Services can help students with this process. If a student is living in campus housing, staff would prefer that they return home to quarantine but can offer some options if the student needs to remain on campus.
Students with COVID-19 must isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms and be symptom free for at least three days without medication before returning to campus activities. If the student is not experiencing symptoms (or is asymptomatic), they need to isolate for 10 days after the day of testing.
A close contact is a person who has had contact of 15 minutes or more within six feet of a person who tested positive for the virus. Close contacts of positive individuals must quarantine for 14 days.
If someone is a close contact living in campus housing, Student Health Services prefers that they return home to quarantine, but health officials can offer some options if they need to remain on campus. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573-341-4902 for more information.
We believe all members of the Miner community will come together to protect the health and safety of our campus and community. However, if someone has concerns about how a fellow student is following the COVID-19 policies and protocols, please refer concerns to the dean of students’ office or submit a report.
S&T policies and standards are based on university expectations as informed by federal, state and local public health guidelines. Compliance for students falls under the University of Missouri Collected Rules and Regulations Section 200.010 Standard of Conduct.
Missouri S&T’s COVID-19 safety guidelines allow for events on campus as long as they are limited to no more than 10 individuals and all participants maintain a physical distance of six feet or more and wear appropriate facial coverings as much as possible during the event. In keeping with best practices during the pandemic, you should plan to hold virtual events for groups larger than 10.
However, students, faculty and staff may host events for larger groups if approved by the university’s COVID-19 Incident Command Team leaders.
To request an exemption from the current COVID-19 guidelines for your event, please complete this form at least two weeks before the date of your event with a description of the event; the time, date and location of the event; and the estimated number of people in attendance. Please also provide information about the following safety precautions:
The university anticipates that the majority of events for the fall 2020 semester will be limited in scope and number of attendees, so please plan your events accordingly.
The university community must adopt these behaviors to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
