Face Coverings Required as of August 3, 2021

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the University has closely monitored national, state, and local guidance on public health and safety precautions. We continue to do so, especially as COVID-19 transmission rates fluctuate.

The Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus appears to be much more easily transmitted, resulting in new CDC guidance on masking announced this week. This guidance recommends that in any county where the COVID transmission rate is shown to be substantial or high, individuals wear facial coverings while indoors, whether vaccinated or not.

Relying on this guidance and with the advice of our University public health experts, effective Tuesday, August 3, we are reinstituting the requirement that all students, staff, faculty, contractors, and visitors to our campuses, offices, and facilities, statewide, wear facial coverings while indoors, regardless of your vaccination status. Masks or facial coverings are not required outdoors. 

 

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.
