- If you anticipate missing more than three classes it is required that a class release from a physician is presented to your faculty prior to returning into class.
- If you contract the H1N1 virus, MICA Student Affairs or Campus Safety will immediately try to contact roommates and others you have been in contact with, making arrangements as necessary to help keep the virus contained.
- MICA Student Affairs/Campus Safety will submit information to the MICA EHS. The EHS manager will work with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to limit the spread of the virus within the MICA community.
