COVID-19 Vaccination Information

We will continue to require weekly student and employee case reporting through the existing reporting process at least through the remainder of the spring semester.

Students need to continue to report a positive COVID case to Kari Rusch-Curl or at 651-450-3887.

Employees need to continue to report a positive COVID case to Laina Carlson, Director of Human Resources or at 651-450-3305.

Effective Monday, March 14, there will no longer be a proof of vaccination or testing requirement for students in activities designated by the college or university such as student sports or clubs.

Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) has rescinded its HR/LR Policy #1446 effective May 24, 2022, which required employees who were assigned to work at the workplace to show Covid-19 vaccination proof or submit to testing, as well as other measures.

This rescission means:

  • Employees, contractors, vendors, volunteers, and interns are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or submit to weekly testing.

If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recommends booster shots for everyone 18 years or older. For those who received Pfizer or Moderna, individuals should get a booster of any vaccine type at least 6 months after completing the primary vaccination series. For those who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine, individuals should get a booster of any vaccine type at least two months after the primary vaccination. At this point, the CDC's definition of "fully vaccinated" has not changed. People continue to be considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
