Get ready to “flex”

MTU Flex is the university’s plan for returning to campus and responding to any future disruptions that might be caused due to COVID-19. Part of MTU Flex includes surveillance testing. At any point this semester you might volunteer for testing.  If you decide to quarantine or need to quarantine due to suspected close contact, be prepared to “flex” anytime and reduce your stress by knowing:

On-Campus

  • Quarantining individuals may have meals delivered to dorms
  • Listen to your RA regarding protocols for using necessary public spaces, such as restrooms and showers. 
  • Keep your professors informed on what is going on. Tune in virtually if possible, and if not be sure to contact deanofstudents@mtu.edu for approval on an excused absence. 
  • If you’re looking for ways to stay active while quarantining, check out the archived “Daily Workout” stories on the MTU Wellness instagram page (@mtu_wellness). 
  • Stay connected with the Center for Student Mental Health and Well-being’s groups, workshops, and Husky Hour sessions!
  • Student Leadership & Involvement and the Center for Diversity & Inclusion often offer fun or thoughtful virtual events.  Check in with each to see what additional virtual events and resources you can access from your quarantine zone!
  • Additional assistance or questions? Ask your RA.
