Fall Guidance for COVID-19


This page was updated September 16, 2021



With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus or Coronavirus, the College’s Senior Administration gives the health and safety of all CMN students, staff and faculty the highest priority. The best practice is to be informed about prevention and the future of the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Wisconsin Department of Health are our best resources for updates. You are encouraged to check these links for up-to-date and accurate news and to watch your CMN e-mail and campus monitors for specific updates with College-specific information.


The Senior Leadership Team would like to extend our thanks for all that is being done as we all make difficult changes in these unprecedented times. We understand many are making adjustments in their personal lives beyond campus as well.
