Important Covid-19 Update As Of August 15th!!

Effective Immediately – the following policy applies at the UMM campus: 

The University Of Maine System is now requiring that all students have a Covid-19 vaccination in order to attend a class on campus and masks will be required for any in-person classes.  Since Sunrise Senior College is an affiliate of the University of Maine at Machias, this applies to any of our students as well.  With the current outbreak in the virus, we feel this makes sense and are adopting the same policy for all in-person classes held by SSC – whether on campus or off-site.

The class host will be asking anyone attending class in-person for proof of vaccination at the first session and will mark the attendance sheet accordingly.  Anyone signed up for an in-person class who is not vaccinated or that will not prove they are vaccinated will be asked to leave.  We will send out reminders to everyone before each class.  Zoom students are exempt from this.

The best advice we have at this time is to carry your vaccination record and/or a copy with you at all times.  If asked please show it.  Entry to the Merrill Library and the Reynolds Center will require you to show proof of vaccination when entering or you must remain masked on campus.

Please know that we will attempt to keep the latest Covid-19 policy information for UMM updated on our website. 

Thank you in advance for your understanding in these trying times,

Jacqueline O’Clair, SSC Board Chair
