COVID-19 College Updates

DMACC Student Services are available remotely while DMACC buildings remain closed to walk-in, public traffic. Registration is open for both New and Returning students. DMACC is offering a variety of course delivery types to suit your needs. 

Do not come to a DMACC Campus or Center if you:
  • are not feeling well, have a new cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing;
  • display a fever of 100.4 degrees (regardless of the cause);
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia);
  • have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  • have been in close contact with a presumed or confirmed positive case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  • have traveled internationally in the past 14 days.

If you have been at a DMACC facility and have been directly exposed, presumed positive or confirmed positive for COVID-19, please report this to your instructor or supervisor as soon as possible.

In the instance of a reported exposure or COVID-19 case on campus, Faculty and Supervisors should follow the guidance provided in the flowcharts and resources.

When a DMACC incident report is necessary, submit here

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

DMACC has implemented new 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.
