Preventative Measures

One of our key goals is to slow the spread of COVID-19 through preventative measures. These include frequent and proper handwashing, covering your cough, staying home when ill, maintaining 6 feet of physical distance whenever possible, and wearing face coverings when around others.

Campus Face Covering/Mask Policy

Everyone on campus will be required to comply with the Minnesota Governor's Executive Order on face coverings. Read more about where and when face coverings are needed and as well as exceptions.

COVID Daily Symptom Check

Students, faculty, and staff will be required to complete a digital self-wellness check daily beginning Aug. 24. (Previously employees used a website checklist.) Watch your email for how to access the COVID Daily Symptom Check.
