COVID-19 Testing:


To manage campus occupancy for health and safety, a Spring 2021 Campus Registry has been developed, identifying those individuals who will be on campus. Only those on the campus registry are approved to come to campus. Students who have permission to be on campus are added to the registry with the authorization of Residence Life, Student Affairs or Academic Affairs. MSU faculty and staff, if you need to be added to the registry, please fill out the form that can be found online HERE.

As a requirement to access campus, students and employees must:

  • WEAR A MASK and follow the COVID-19 safety protocols (see text below).
  • Participate in Daily COVID-19 Screening Questions. At this time, students and employees should go to Montebello to answer these screening questions. In the near future, a mobile-based app will be used to answer the screening questions
  • Participate in Diagnostic COVID-19 Testing and Contact Tracing. On-campus students and employees are required to participate in COVID-19 testing. MSU is closely monitoring the positivity rates. Information on the week’s testing activities can be seen below.
  • Participate in the SafetySkills COVID-19 Awareness Training. Instructions for logging into SafetySkills can be found online HERE.

Additional details on the Daily COVID-19 Screening Questions and COVID-19 Testing can be found online HERE.




The CDC recommends the following actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Monitor Your Health Daily. Stay home when you are sick!
  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others to stop the spread of COVID-19. The mask must cover your nose and mouth.
  • Stay Safely Social. Remain 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash or in the bend of your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Get Vaccinated when it is available to you.
