Due to the test positivity rate in our area reaching an elevated level, Delta College will require that all individuals wear masks indoors, no matter your vaccination status.
Delta College has prioritized the safety of employees and students when making decisions about its operations, which has kept the impact of the COVID pandemic at a very low level campus-wide. As an academic institution, we follow the advice of experts in the scientific and health community. The Bay County Health Department, MIOSHA and CDC guidelines are therefore followed.
Masks on campus
Effective Monday, January 3, 2022, Delta College will continue to require everyone to wear a mask while inside any one of Delta's buildings, regardless of your vaccination status. Masks will be available at the screener tables near public safety, if needed.
- Upon entering Delta facilities, a health screening will still be used to track potential exposures.
- Staff will be stationed at entrances on the Main Campus and Downtown Centers to check in individuals entering the building by completing the health screening, verify vaccination status and ensure safety protocols.
- Classes and labs will be offered in face-to-face, online and blended formats.
We will continue to monitor the region's situation and adapt procedures based upon the region's health status. We will continue to put the safety of our staff, faculty and students as our first priority.
Covid-19 vaccinE clinics
For the past year, Delta College has worked with the Bay County Health Department to be able to offer frequent vaccination clinics on its main campus. If any new dates are scheduled for 2022, we will be sure to post that information on this webpage.
As always, vaccines are readily available at area pharmacies, health departments and doctors’ offices and we highly recommend you seek one for your health and safety.
COVID-19 exposure or infection
In early 2022, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) revised its guidelines for isolation and quarantining, as it relates to exposure to or contracting the COVID-19 virus. At this time, Delta College's procedure remains the same, which is to require a quarantine period of 10 days for those who test positive for the virus, before returning to class or work.
