On Monday, February 28, 2022, Colorado Mountain College will replace its mandatory masking procedures with “mask optional” ones, as approved by CMC’s College Council.

- Masks/face-coverings will not be required in CMC buildings, classrooms, or residence halls. Masks will be optional for all.
- CMC will continue to supply masks for faculty and staff entering CMC buildings, as requested, for the remainder of the spring 2022 academic term.
- Individuals with symptoms of COVID—fever, headache, “flu-like” symptoms, etc.—are expected to stay at home and not enter a CMC building until after the recommended isolation period or have tested negative for COVID.

- Students requesting adjustments to their courses for bona fide health conditions—that is, moving face-to-face courses to online, livestream, or connected classrooms—should discuss options with their instructors. Modifications to course modalities will be considered on a case-by-case basis within the college’s existing capacities, such as the availability of technology-enabled classrooms or the nature of the course under consideration.
