RMC Coronavirus Information

Masks: There is no institution-wide mask mandate at this time; however, the College strongly urges all non-vaccinated members of the community to wear a mask at all times. In addition, individual faculty members may require students to wear masks while in their classrooms. 

Contact Tracing: Due to regulations/restrictions within the State of Montana, the College’s ability to conduct contact tracing is limited. If you test positive (or know someone that has), please complete the COVID Self-Report Form found on the College website. Once completed student life will reach out to the individuals, assist with their quarantine, and will notify faculty as necessary.  Faculty notifications are provided as a courtesy and do not constitute an excuse from class.

Close Contact: Anyone within 6 feet of a COVID positive individual for 15 minutes or more.

Close Contact Procedures: The following procedures reflect the guidelines provided by the CDC. See Procedures


Additional Considerations: Rocky Mountain College encourages all individuals to take steps to protect themselves from COVID-19. Please practice good hygiene (wash your hands with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based sanitizer); keep hands away from your face; maintain physical  distance whenever possible; stay home if you are not feeling well; avoid unnecessary travel; avoid large groups; and  wear a mask indoors.

CDC Recommendations to Prevent Spread of Disease

  • Stay home when you are sick (and until your symptoms are gone).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If a tissue is unavailable, use the inside of your elbow, never your hand.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you have a fever, cough or have trouble breathing:

  • Seek medical care. Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.
  • Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.
