​​ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FALL 2021:  DMACC Administrators are planning to start a “new normal” in college operations when fall classes resume on Aug. 25. While most face-to-face classes are scheduled to return this fall, the College plans to take additional proactive steps that represent the “new normal” to keep students, faculty and staff safe. Face masks are recommended until further notice. Plans to return to fully in-person operations could change depending on the state of the pandemic over the summer and ​into the fall. ​

» Read the entire DMACC Playbook for districtwide guidance on procedures and protocols to keep employees, students, and guests safe and healthy.

DMACC has implemented cleaning and safety efforts to keep students, faculty, staff and visitors to DMACC facilities safe. However, due to the extreme contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus it should NOT be assumed that all risk from COVID-19 will be eliminated. Everyone has to do their part to protect themselves and others.

These DMACC protocols provide an opportunity for the College to monitor and evaluate risk, to a reasonable extent, and to adapt practices to reduce that risk by guidance and direction from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health professionals and experts.
