A Community-First Campus

What does it mean to be prepared with purpose? Returning to Saint Joseph’s College of Maine this semester will require our close-knit campus to put our core value of community first, more than ever before. Teams across campus have been diligently working since March to create the safest and most welcoming experience possible when classes start on August 24th. This portal is just one outcome of that preparation. Its purpose is to help us keep our commitment to each other and to this special place. The resources you’ll find here will help everyone at SJC navigate all aspects of college life during the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite you to read through the sections listed on the left side of the page (or the bottom of the page if you’re on a mobile device). And we encourage you to check back often, because as new information becomes available we will continue to adapt our responses to it.

Previewing the start of Spring Semester

We are busy planning for the return to campus in the new year. Here's a preview of some of the modifications we will be making as this latest wave of the  COVID-19 continues to build across the country and in Maine.

Campus COVID-19 Update

We now have twelve students who have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past week and are responding to this situation with a phased exit plan.

COVID-related developments

Three new cases have been identified among our student body. You have a part to play. When each of us follows campus safety protocols to the letter, we can stem this outbreak as quickly as we did last time.

Community Safety Measures

Call the Health Center

If you experience fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, or loss of taste or smell, call immediately.

Wear your mask properly

A proper fitting mask goes over your nose and mouth, fits snugly, and must be worn in all indoor public spaces.

Wash your hands regularly

Warm water, soap, and 20 seconds of scrubbing will break down the virus and keep your hands healthy.

Maintain 6 feet of distance

The right amount of space keeps everyone in our community healthy and safe.

Clean & disinfect surfaces

Viruses live on surfaces, up to a few days. Clean the ones you just touched, and the ones you’re about to touch.

Limit social gatherings

Large groups, especially indoors, increase the risk of infection. Know the limits in your space.
