Coronavirus Information

MTC is closely following any developments in the coronavirus situation that might impact the people we serve at this facility. The safety of our staff and those in our care is top priority. We also want to protect those who visit the facility.


We encourage all visitors to wash their hands prior to entering the facility and after they leave. The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) says frequent hand washing can reduce exposure to and prevent the spreading of the coronavirus. The CDC also recommends:

  • Staying home if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
