COVID-19 Information

August 8, 2022

Meridian Family,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Meridian has been following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC has developed a COVID-19 Community Levels tool to help organizations and communities decide what steps to take based on the latest data. Meridian serves students from five counties (Lincoln, Logan, Noble, Payne and Pawnee) and monitors levels in each of those counties.


  • We will continue to make masks and hand sanitizing stations available at our entrances for those who would like to use them. Each level in the CDC Community Level tool provides masking recommendations. At this time, we encourage you to wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.
  • Some of our programs, including those that provide health care or cosmetology services, may require specific protocols based on their industry standards. When that is the case, instructors will share those guidelines directly with their students.
  • Our Skywalk snack bar area will be open so that students may enjoy their breaks in a common space.
  • Buses will make one stop and will drop students off at the main entrance.

Our team will continue to regularly monitor the effects of COVID-19 on our campus and modify our protocols accordingly. We encourage you to be diligent in the effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We depend on a strong partnership with you to be able to continue offering Meridian’s hands-on education in person.
