Coronavirus Information

Inver Hills Community College and the Minnesota State System Office continue to take action to limit the spread of COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.

As a follow up from the recent MinnState communication, as well as current COVID trends and public health experts' guidance (Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH)), as well as in alignment with the recent Executive Order 21-21 by Governor Walz, our Inver Hills campus will be making the following adjustments:

  • Mask/Face Covering Updates
    • Effective immediately, masks will not be required for vaccinated individuals while indoors or outdoors at Inver Hills.
      • All people who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in accordance with MDH and CDC recommendations until they are fully vaccinated.
      • Nothing precludes someone from wearing a mask, for any reason, if they so choose.
      • For more information on activities that still require a mask (e.g., on public transportation), please visit the CDC site.
  • Social Distancing/Capacity Limitations
    • As a COVID-19 mitigation effort, campus classrooms will require 3 feet of social distancing. In other campus locations, 6 feet of social distancing should be maintained.
    • Limits on size and capacity restrictions for indoor and outdoor events will be lifted.
  • COVID Health Screening Questionnaire Tool
    • Effective on Monday, May 24, 2021, students, employees or visitors no longer need to complete the COVID Health Screening Questionnaire Tool (“green screen”). However, please continue to self-monitor for COVID symptoms and stay home if you are not feeling well and seek medical advice as needed.
  • Vaccination Information
    • Under the new CDC guidance, fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities that they did prior to the pandemic without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
    • If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine.
  • Building Access
    • Beginning, Monday, May 24, 2021 buildings will be open normal business hours from M-Th.
    • Effective Friday, May 28, 2021 through Friday, July 30, 2021, all Inver campus buildings will be closed on Fridays to employees and students (except for some facilities and operations personnel).
  • COVID Status Dashboard
    • With the increase in vaccinations, reported cases on campus have decreased. Per guidance from Minnesota State, we no longer need to reflect the COVID status level alert on campus.
