Responding to COVID-19

The Management Development Institute and Missouri State University are taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. The health and safety of our staff, instructors and training attendees is our top priority.

We will continue to provide updates below. Please contact with any questions.

COVID-19 Policies

We are following Missouri State University's policies surrounding COVID-19 testing and precautions. Face masks are required inside the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center.

Individuals who are awaiting results of a COVID-19 test may not attend training events.

All individuals should take precautions to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, including:

  • Frequent hand washing with soap and water or with hand sanitizer
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes

Individuals may not attend training events if they have experienced any of the following:

  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days
  • Have had close contact within the last 14 days with a known COVID-19 positive person
  • Have had any of the following symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 14 days that is unexplained, including: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.

Such individuals will not be permitted to attend training events unless and until they have undergone testing for COVID-19 more than two days after their potential exposure to the virus, received results indicating that they are negative for COVID-19 infection, and provided documentation of such results. Alternatively, an individual may present documentation from a health care provider indicating that they have been approved to attend training events.

Individuals may not attend training events within 14 days of international travel unless they have received approval from a health care provider or tested negative for COVID-19. The test must be given more than two days after returning to the United States.
