Confidentiality laws prohibit us from disclosing individuals’ identities. Anyone believed to be at risk of exposure will be contacted. In cases where an employee or student does not disclose that they tested positive, the university would not have any way of knowing about the case, and it would not be included in these totals.
Statistics of COVID-19 Cases at Mississippi College
Our commitment to protecting the safety and well-being of the MC community means providing the number of COVID-19 cases among students, faculty, and staff who have been diagnosed as COVID-19 positive.
All MC community members are required to report to firstname.lastname@example.org if they test positive for COVID-19 or are self-quarantining due to suspected or known exposure to COVID-19.
COVID-19 cases reported on this dashboard include positive, laboratory-verified test results reported to the university. These include only those who were on campus during the time when they were contagious. In cases where a student or employee fails to disclose to the university that they have tested positive, the university will have no way of knowing and communicating that information. Therefore, the information on this dashboard includes only positive cases that the university has been made aware of.
Notification of COVID-19 Cases
If a member of the campus community tests positive for COVID-19, the university follows contact tracing and notification protocols as directed by local and state health authorities.
MC's contact tracing will endeavor to include contacts that were within six feet of the infected person for 15 minutes or longer since symptoms began or two days prior to a positive COVID-19 test.
Mississippi State Department of Health Dashboard
The Mississippi State Department of Health maintains a COVID-19 dashboard that is updated daily.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, email email@example.com or call 601-925-3030, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
