OUR MOST RECENT UPDATE
January 5, 2021
The MCC 2020 program year was dynamic and responsive in order to maintain the health and well-being of members, staff, and partners while operating in COVID-19 conditions. As conditions shifted, or new scientific data became available, we updated our protocols and practices. The MCC COVID-19 Response Team met 2 to 3 times a week during the season to monitor data, and share information and tackle challenges. It was an extraordinary year, with staff and members demonstrating the highest ethic of service to our communities through the day after day, implementation of COVID-19 protocols both in and out of the field.
We are now looking ahead to 2021, updating our COVID protocols and practices to reflect new data and current conditions. We work closely with our medical advisor, and with local and state public health officials in the overall response to COVID-19 incidents.
In 2021 we will relaunch our high school youth expedition program and COVID related information will be provided to youth and guardians during the application process in February.
MCC will continue to evaluate our progress, collaborate with other conservation corps, and remain alert to COVID-19 conditions in the locations we serve.
