Health experts stress that the pandemic is not over and we should still take measures such as vaccinations, masks and physical distancing to protect ourselves and others. Current COVID-19 statistics are available at the Maricopa County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Mesa Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, and community members. MCC, which is one of the 10 colleges in the Maricopa County Community College District, is working with federal, state, city, and District partners to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the recommended protocols to prevent the spread.

There are things you can do to prevent catching and spreading COVID-19. Please continue to follow all public health protocols, including getting a vacinnation, wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing.

MCC welcomes you to the Fall Semester

Welcome to Fall 2021 at Mesa Community College. We look forward to helping you achieve your educational and career goals. In responding to COVID-19, our priorities are focused on the health, safety, and well-being of our students, staff, and members of the community. Protocols are currently in place, based on the most up-to-date scientific and public health guidelines. We are committed to proactively communicating any changes to your classes or required procedures as they arise.

Masks Required

MCC requires that all individuals – faculty, staff, students, and visitors – wear facial coverings while indoors at any of our facilities. We believe this decision will provide the best chance to maintain our in-person learning experiences for our students. We will also continue to monitor the evolving mask and face-covering guidelines and update the Maricopa community of any changes as we move into the Fall Semester.

Because this requirement applies to all individuals regardless of vaccination status, it is in line with both the Governor’s Executive Order (2021-15) and Arizona Revised Statutes 15-1650.05, which will go into effect on September 29, 2021. We understand that not everyone may be able or willing to be vaccinated, and our intent is to respect each individual within our community while also addressing the safety concerns associated with the current circumstances.

Vaccines Encouraged

MCC does not require students or employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. However, we continue to strongly encourage all students, faculty, and staff to obtain a vaccine so that we may maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards and safeguard our community’s health from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19. If you have yet to be vaccinated, we encourage you to join the many faculty, staff, and students who have already been vaccinated.

There are several COVID-19 vaccination sites near our campuses. This information is available at the webpage below.
