MDC Cares


College Action Plan - Your Health and Safety is Our Priority

As part of our action plan, we have enacted several college-wide protocols:

Activated an Enhanced Cleaning Protocol (ECP):

This entails:

  • Required twice daily cleaning and disinfecting with and industrial-grade germicidal product in all areas of campus buildings.
  • Cleaning high traffic surfaces frequently touched by hands, including:
    • Bathrooms
    • Doorknobs, door frames and other frequently touched areas on the door
    • Light switches and elevator buttons
    • Tables, chairs, and counter tops
    • Water fountains

Deploying hand sanitation stations:

  • Stations will be located at main entrances and key high traffic locations on all campuses in the near future.

Augmented Campus Services by selecting specialized vendors:

  • Facilities Management has already identified outside vendors in the event additional cleaning actions become necessary.
