COVID-19 Information

Students at pro do not need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in on-campus classes and activities. Students are strongly encouraged to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots, but they are not required.

There is one exception: Maine community college students in some programs may require vaccination against COVID-19 due to requirements at third-party locations, such as student placement sites.

In early 2024, the U.S. CDC eliminated the 5-day isolation period for those who test positive for COVID-19. The updated guidance states that people with COVID-19 may return to their daily activities if they have been fever-free for 24-hours (without medication) and their symptoms are improving.

However, the CDC stressed that those with COVID-19, RSV or influenza may still be contagious to others, even without symptoms, and should take steps to avoid spreading their respiratory virus. .

pro recommends that anyone who feels unwell stay home if possible and, if coming to a campus, please wear a mask, cover your cough, and wash your hands frequently. We encourage all visitors to be aware of the simple steps that can be taken in order to avoid infecting others or prolonging their own recovery. We prioritize the health and safety of our students, employees, and communities.
