To ensure the health and safety of our campus community, Minneapolis College is following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota State System Office. The driving factor behind our decisions will continue to be the health, safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff.
We ask all employees and students to be familiar with the current health and safety measures in place. As Minneapolis College receives on-going guidance from the CDC, MDH and the Minnesota State System Office this will be communicated to our campus community and updated on this web page.
The information below is intended to provide answers to the most frequently asked questions. Please email email@example.com for additional information or to report any COVID-19 related issues.
Masks are not required in indoor public settings on the Minneapolis College campus or at the College’s Aircraft Maintenance Technician Program, which is housed at a Delta facility at the MSP Airport.
In clinical settings and healthcare programs, such as Boynton Student Health Clinic, the nursing program and the dental assistant program, masks may still be required per CDC guidelines. Additionally, students at internship or clinical sites must continue following the COVID-19 policies in place at their site.
Individuals may wear a mask if they choose to do so. If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you should wear a mask on campus.
Please respect and support employees and students who choose to wear masks.

Accurate vaccine information is critical and can help stop common myths and rumors. It can be difficult to know which sources of information you can trust. The CDC has provided a helpful guide to COVID-19 vaccination myths and facts.
If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 but have tested negative, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have experienced a possible exposure incident contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Email will be monitored from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
When three or more infections are tied to an event, activity or a classroom where people did not stay six feet away from each other, then broader testing, isolation or both may be considered. Isolation means keeping anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 away from people who do not, or may not, have COVID-19.
Please see CDC guidance here for quarantine and isolation guidelines if you have been exposed or have contracted COVID-19.
People who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days, and have fully recovered and are not experiencing any symptoms, do not need to quarantine if they were exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Faculty, staff and students who have COVID-19 should stay at home and further reduce the spread within their household by following CDC recommendations: If You are Sick or Caring for Someone.
