COVID-19 Case Count
Concordia College ended the publishing of COVID cases on April 29, 2021. This page will no longer be maintained.
If there is a need to publish COVID-19 numbers when students return in the fall a new page will be created.
As of Nov. 21, this case count will only include student, faculty and staff members who have physically been on the Concordia campus (Moorhead) in the past 14 days.
This page was created to inform the Concordia community of positive COVID-19 cases among our students, faculty and staff on campus. A case is placed on this site when the college is notified of a positive COVID-19 laboratory test for a student, faculty or staff member of our Moorhead campus. If individuals have only interacted with the community in an online environment their test results will not be included in this count. If a student or employee fails to report a positive test to the college, we cannot communicate that case to the community. This page was launched Aug. 20 with the count beginning on that day. The case count will be updated once per day during business hours Monday-Friday with the prior day's data.
Confidentiality prohibits the college from publishing any personal information regarding people's health. The college will not confirm if a specific individual has tested positive for COVID-19 per privacy laws.
Individuals who have a positive lab-confirmed test for COVID-19 will be told to isolate and those who are awaiting test results will be quarantined if recommended to do so by a medical provider. Read more information about isolation and quarantine.
COVID-19 Notification Procedure
When notified of a lab-confirmed COVID case, Concordia will follow the procedures of local and state health officials for notification and contact tracing. Contacts will receive guidance for next steps for monitoring and testing. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, a close contact is a person who has been within 6 feet of the ill individual for 15 minutes or more. The college will work with the health department to assist in contact tracing as necessary.
