Protect the Nest

Protect the Nest with icons of hand washing, social distancing and wearing a mask.


In the wild, Golden Eagles are fierce protectors of their nest and their territory. It’s time we as a community live up to that. 

We have an opportunity to lead right now.  If we wear face coverings and follow safety measures, all of us just may get what we want - to keep our campus open and ensure our community and Golden Eagle family is safe.  We ask this of everyone - faculty, staff, students, our visitors and our community.  Help us protect our nest by complying with the guidelines and policies put in place for the health and safety of all.   

We have one chance to get this right. 

Take responsibility for yourself and caring about others:

  • Wash your hands,
  • Wear a face covering (and keep it on when you are talking--especially when on your phone in public spaces),
  • Practicing physical distance; and
  • Self-screen daily (PDF).

This is the only way to ensure our community is safe and gives us the best chance of remaining here together.

Let’s do this the right way, together.

Crookston Campus COVID-19 Dashboard

The University of Minnesota Crookston works closely with Polk County Public Health (PCPH) and local professional healthcare providers to administer COVID-19 testing.  AS UMN CROOKSTON DOES NOT ADMINISTER TESTS DIRECTLY ON CAMPUS, WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE ANY TESTING DATA.  The data reported here are solely for students living in UMN Crookston residence halls.  Isolation spaces are provided for students who test positive for COVID-19. Students are required to quarantine if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive to COVID-19.  Students who test positive for COVID-19 are placed in isolation.
