Effective July 30: Because Ramsey County has substantial transmission of COVID-19 and the delta variant, face coverings are required for everyone in university buildings and common spaces at the Dayton’s Bluff or Midway locations.
This requirement applies to vaccinated and unvaccinated employees, students, visitors, contractors, and vendors. People in a private office or workspace may remove their mask while they are alone in that space.
Members of the university community are expected to behave responsibly and show respect for the health and safety of others. Any employee, student, or visitor who fails to abide by this directive without an approved accommodation may be asked or directed to leave the campus. Faculty and staff who are so directed but fail to comply may be subject to university discipline. Students who are so directed but fail to comply may be subject to student discipline.
Avoid stigmatization of the wearing or not wearing of face coverings. Some members of the campus community may have an approved accommodation and are thus not subject to this requirement. We encourage patience, kindness, and compassion for others in our community who may be unable to wear a face covering.
Faculty, staff, students, and visitors are exempt from the requirement of wearing a face covering:
Students who believe they should be considered for an exception to this requirement should contact Accessibility Resources at 651-793-1549 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty and staff who believe they should be considered for an exception to this requirement should contact Human Resources at 651-793-1275 or email@example.com.
Use this form to report a student who is in violation of the university's face covering policy.
