MMC Continuous COVID-19 Updates

Reading Time: < 1 minute

On Wednesday, the MMC community received the email that a staff member at 71st St. tested positive. Having last been on campus Monday, September 14th, all facilities were cleaned that evening. On Wednesday, September 16th, a full campus cleaning was facilitated. 

The school facilitated its contact tracing team to fully identify any potential spread of COVID-19, and all persons that came in contact with said staff member have been notified and are responsibly quarantining until they can get either tested, or receive their results. 

All facilities remain open, with all original requirements still active.

  • Complete the Daily Health Screening if you plan to go on campus 
  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Stay 6ft apart 
  • Take the Pledge to Keep MMC Healthy pledge 

Continue to monitor yourself and if you develop any COVID related symptoms, MMC has partnered with NYC Health Systems to host a public mobile testing site. 

  • Located at 220 E 72nd Street 
  • Open from 10 am – 4 pm today, September 17th 
  • Open tomorrow, September 18th from 10 am – 4 pm

Appointments are not necessary and the site is open and free to all students, staff and faculty. It is encouraged to just walk in, however, if you are quarantining/self-isolating, you must remain in your dorm or at home, to prevent any further spread. 

For any continuous questions, contact [email protected], or [email protected] if you live in the dorms.
