COVID-19 Guidelines
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, MNTC has implemented plans to ensure the safety of all students, employees, and campus visitors.

Circumstances related to the pandemic change frequently, and we continue to monitor data and guidance from local, state, and federal sources. The items below outline the current plan as we continue the 2021-2022 school year. Details are subject to change. The latest information will always be available at www.mntc.edu.

2021-2022 Academics
MNTC will hold traditional, in-person classes. Social distancing is encouraged in all group situations, including classrooms.

Masks/Vaccinations
In compliance with Oklahoma Senate Bill 658, masks and vaccinations will not be required for students or staff. In situations where close contact may be likely, masks are strongly recommended. Current guidelines recommend a surgical or N95/KN95 mask instead of a cloth mask, gaiter, or bandana.

Transportation
Seating on buses will allow for maximum space between riders, and electrostatic sprayers will be used to clean and sanitize buses.

Activities
Program-related activities like CTSO contests will continue.

Parents, Guests, and Visitors
Parents, guests, and visitors are welcome to enter campus buildings through designated entrances. Without an appointment, they should use the Main Entrance in the Main Building on the Franklin Road Campus.

Isolation/Quarantine
Guidance on isolation and quarantine practices will be taken from state law and recommendations from the Cleveland County and Oklahoma state health departments. Please see below for current guidance.

Additional Safeguards

  • Social distancing is encouraged. Furniture in classrooms and common areas should be arranged to maximize space between individuals.
  • Enhanced sanitization will continue on high-touch surfaces, desks, tables, restrooms, etc.
  • Electrostatic sprayers will continue to be used in classrooms and high-traffic areas.
  • School HVAC systems have been adjusted and improved to allow additional air flow within buildings.

Positive Cases
A student or employee who tests positive for COVID-19 must not be on campus and should isolate at home, subject to the guidelines below. You may return to campus:

  • Five (5) days after the date of your positive COVID-19 test if you are asymptomatic OR
  • Five (5) days after onset of symptoms AND symptoms are improving AND no fever without the use of fever- reducing medications.
    • If a fever persists beyond day 5, you may not return to campus until your temperature returns to normal without the use of fever-reducing medications.

Once you meet the above criteria you may return to campus, but it is strongly recommended that you wear an approved mask when you are around other people for an additional five days. Your isolation or quarantine start date will be calculated based on the latter of:

  • Last day of exposure (day zero)
  • Day your symptoms started (day zero)
  • Day you tested (day zero)
    • If you tested positive without symptoms and later have an onset of symptoms, your day zero will reset to the day your symptoms started.

Symptomatic Close Contact Exposure
If you develop symptoms after exposure to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, you should self-isolate immediately, do not come to campus, submit an MNTC exposure form, and get tested as soon as possible.

Asymptomatic Close Contact Exposure
If you have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with an active case of COVID-19 and are not having any symptoms, please choose one of the following based on your vaccination status:
If you have gotten a vaccine booster OR have completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last six months OR completed the primary series of Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last two months OR have had a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the last 90 days:

  • Wear an approved mask around others for 10 days from your last date of exposure.
  • Test on day five from your last exposure, if possible.
  • If you develop symptoms: do not come to campus, submit an MNTC exposure form, and get tested.

If you are unvaccinated OR completed the primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine more than six months ago and have not gotten a booster OR completed the primary series of Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than two months ago and are not boosted OR have had an active case of COVID-19 but more than 90 days have passed since recovery:

  • It is recommended you stay home for five (5) days from your last date of exposure. After that, continue to wear an approved mask around others for five (5) further days.
  • If you choose not to quarantine, it is recommended you wear an approved mask for 10 days from your last date of exposure.
  • Test on day five from your last day of exposure, if possible.
  • If you develop symptoms: do not come to campus, submit an MNTC exposure form, and get tested.
