RMC Coronavirus Information

What can I do to help protect myself and others from the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses?

Rocky Mountain College encourages all individuals to take steps to protect themselves from COVID-19 by adhering when possible to the following 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.

If you're worried about whether you may have COVID-19, please call the Riverstone Health Coronavirus Hotline at 406.651.6415.

What do I do if I test positive for COVID or am a close contact COVID-19?

If you test positive or are a confirmed contact of COVID-19, RMC requests that you submit the COVID Self-Report Form found on the College website. Once completed, a member of the Campus Safety Committee will contact you to assist with next steps including notification of faculty as necessary. Please note, faculty notifications are provided as a courtesy and do not constitute an excuse from class. Additionally, individuals should adhere to the currently published CDC Guidelines.

What is considered a close contact?

Anyone within 6 feet of a COVID-19 positive individual for 15 minutes or more.

What is RMC’s mask policy?

At this time RMC does not have an institution-wide mask mandate; however, the College strongly urges all non-vaccinated members of the community to wear a mask at all times.
