COVID-19 and Prevention
We have a collective responsibility to protect one another with vaccination, daily individual health monitoring, proper handwashing, physical distancing, and wearing masks.
- This dashboard shows results from ongoing COVID-19 testing administered by Boynton Health to faculty, staff, and students. This dashboard is updated weekly by the University.
- We all have a role to play in the collective health and wellbeing of our community. The best way to keep yourself and others around you safe and COVID-free is to get vaccinated. Get vaccinated on campus or through the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector.

Face Coverings and PPE
- Masks are required indoors for everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, effective Aug. 3. Face masks must be properly fitted to cover the wearer’s nose and mouth, wrap under the chin, and not have any noticeable gaps. For more information, view the University’s official Face Covering Protocol.
- Resources about effective masks, fittings, and more
- The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is offering a mask room where students, faculty and staff can come for mask fittings, mask recommendations, and pricing options. The mask room will be open every Thursday, from 9-11 a.m. in the basement on Boynton.
