Good afternoon NMC students,

Welcome to the spring semester! Whether you are a new or returning student, please review NMC’s COVID-19 safety precautions. Our goals remain the same as they have since the pandemic began in March 2020: Keep our campus community safe while limiting the disruption to learning.


  • NMC’s requirement that everyone wear face masks while indoors on campus continues. We highly recommend using N-95 or KN-95 respirators.
  • N-95 or KN-95 respirators are available for the campus community at the following designated locations during regular business hours:
    • Main Campus – Health Services (LB106)
    • Aero Park Campus – Parsons-Stulen Welcome Desk (PS104)
    • Great Lakes Campus – GLMA front desk or GLCI faculty suite 
    • University Center – Extended Educational Services suite (main entrance)
  • Surgical masks are provided at the entrances to all buildings and signage also informs students, faculty and staff and visitors.
  • This video shows how to properly wear a face mask and other simple COVID precautions.

Cases on campus reporting:

  • As announced in December, cases on campus will be reported via the dashboard, not campuswide emails. Links to the dashboard are on the home page, MyNMC page (top left corner) and in every issue of the emailed Student News.
  • Flow charts for what to do if you test positive have been updated with the newest CDC-recommended quarantine criteria (generally, reduced from 10 to 5 days.) The chart is available on the MyNMC page (top left corner) and on NMC’s COVID hub page.
  • NMC will monitor cases on campus and take further action as necessary, such as the temporary shift to online learning.

Vaccination and testing:

Vaccines remain the best protection against COVID-19, especially against severe illness. Vaccines are widely available for ages 5 and up.

  • NMC will host a free vaccination clinic from 1-4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 24 in the Innovation Center. Visit to find other locations. 
  • Every home in the U.S. may order four free at-home tests. Tests are shipped by the U.S. Postal Service and may be ordered online
  • Testing is available by appointment from NMC Health Services if you are having symptoms or were exposed AT NMC. Call (231) 995-1255.  Find other testing locations here (scroll to get tested if you have symptoms.)

Other resources: is NMC’s hub for all COVID information. Please use the feedback form found there if you have questions.

The health and safety of everyone on campus requires everyone to do their part. We wish you the best this semester.
