IMPORTANT REMINDERS REGARDING CAMPUS COVID-19 POLICY

With a cooperative effort to COVID-19 campus policy and a high vaccination rate, Concordia has maintained a low active COVID-19 positive case count throughout the fall semester. From the start of the semester (9/1/21) through December 6, 2021, Concordia had 68 cumulative COVID-19 positive cases (employees & students), roughly half from the same time frame in the 2020 fall term.

Further, active case counts have consistently remained in the single digits and have not surpassed 15 on any single day whereas last year, campus had reported numerous active totals in the 20 to 30 range.

Students and employees should continue to follow the campus guidance as we look to stay ahead of the national, state, local and higher education trends:

  • Masking: unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask at all times indoors in shared campus spaces, exceptions are non-shared office spaces and dorm rooms. Vaccinated individuals are still strongly encouraged to mask indoors in public common spaces, as well.

  • Vaccination: Concordia encourages its students and employees to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others from the spread of COVID-19. More information about how to get a vaccination appointment is located HERE

  • Free COVID-19 Testing: The MDH offers free COVID-19 testing at numerous sites around the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota. Tests are convenient and typically yield results in 1-to-2 days, ahead of their published time frame. More information about COVID-19 testing click HERE

  • COVID-19 Reporting Form: Students who have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual or who are taking a COVID-19 test should complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form so the CSP Contact Tracing Team can assist students & their instructors on a safe and efficient quarantine timeline.
