MASK POLICY

MIAD continues its commitment to maintaining a safe working and learning environment. A survey of MIAD faculty, staff and students was completed in August 2021 and the results show that 88% of the MIAD community is fully or partially vaccinated, much higher than the surrounding community. New CDC guidance recommends that in any county with a high rate of transmission, citizens wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.

Milwaukee County, as well as adjoining counties, are currently classified as high risk. While vaccines are highly effective at preventing serious illness and death from the Delta variant, there is evidence of increased risk for vaccinated individuals carrying and transmitting the virus.  

To align with CDC guidelines, MIAD has revised its policy as of September 10, 2021. View the full MIAD Face Mask Policy hereA summary is below:

The general rule: If you are in the presence of another person inside the MIAD building, you are required to wear a mask or an acrylic shield.  

Policy details:

  • Individuals who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated will continue to wear masks at all times, except while alone in a private office.
  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated will wear masks or face shields in occupied classrooms, labs, meeting spaces, common areas, or any other densely populated indoor space.
    • Exceptions:
      • In an area, studio, lab, or classroom with low occupancy, masks can be removed as long as no one else is within 6 feet.
      • Individuals meeting one-on-one and who wear a protective acrylic shield may remove their mask.
      • Faculty can lecture, or students may present, without a mask if behind a protective acrylic shield or wearing a face shield.
      • Students may remove their masks within their private residence apartments.
      • Masks can be removed while sitting down and eating. While walking with food or drink, continue to wear a mask. 
      • Food service staff will be subject to any local Health Department requirements that supersede this policy.
  • Masks are not required outdoors, but students and staff should use common sense social distancing precautions, even outdoors.
  • Faculty or staff may ask anyone not complying with these rules to leave the classroom/lab/area. If a student is removed from a class for not wearing a mask, it can be considered an unexcused absence from class. Any concerns with faculty or staff should be directed to the Director of Human Resources.
  • Construction sites temporarily become the property of the contractor; contractors will determine the proper mask policy for their employees within those spaces. Construction workers outside of the designated construction site will follow the MIAD mask policy on campus.
  • Campus visitors will wear masks during their visit, regardless of vaccination status.

MIAD senior leadership will continue to monitor the situation in Milwaukee weekly and make adjustments as necessary throughout the academic year. MIAD will follow CDC guidelines for Milwaukee and adjoining counties.
