Aug. 19: Vaccine and Mask Requirements
Concordia College has set campus COVID protocols based on an established goal of achieving no less than 85% vaccination rate among our students.
In our continual review of current campus vaccination data, indicators suggest we cannot be confident we will achieve that 85% goal. Additionally, regional COVID transmission rates continue to rise. These indicators, in combination with recently communicated NCAA guidelines for athletic practice and competition, lead us to adjust our vaccination expectations for student athletes.
Getting your vaccination – Concordia students and staff have various opportunities both on campus and in the Moorhead-Fargo community to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
