COVID-19 Information & Support


COVID-19 Information & Support

[Work in Progress : check back frequently for more updates]

With the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the novel coronavirus and number of confirmed cases continuing to rise, this page was created as an additional channel of information for members of the MSU SHC to stay up-to-date with how our community is responding to this health crisis and to provide our members with the information and resources to mitigate the impact of this outbreak, both in general and specific to cooperative living.

Disclaimer: Staff and leadership of the Co-op are not health professionals. Discretion is advised. All resources listed below may not apply to every member or house.


House-level Preparations

If your house hasn’t already done so, we strongly advise that you hold a meeting with your housemates to establish policies and protocols in response to this virus.

Individual Precautions

How to prevent the spread of the disease, care for the mental and physical well-being of yourself and your housemates, what to do if you start showing symptoms of COVID-19, and how to support a housemate who may be positive for the virus.


Financial Hardship

There are resources that the MSU SHC, the local community, the State level, and Federal level have in concerns surrounding COVID-19. Some of these resources may not apply to every member.

Additional Resources

There are a number of reliable sources for information about this ever-evolving situation available. In addition, through cooperation among cooperatives across the continent, we now have plenty of resources specific to co-op living that can aid each of us during these unique circumstances.
