Keeping the Minneapolis College Community Healthy
Minneapolis College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students, faculty, staff and all members of the campus community. This Back-to-Campus Preparedness Plan is being developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic utilizing guidance offered in Emergency Executive Order 20-40, Allowing Workers in Certain Non-Critical Sectors to Return to Safe Workplaces, April 23, 2020.
To protect the health and safety of students and employees from the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, Minneapolis College is requiring mandatory screening of all employees, students, contractors and visitors prior to entering campus buildings for potential exposure to COVID-19 and symptoms of COVID-19. For the safety of our community, students and employees who refuse to take the health screening will not be permitted to enter campus buildings.
Consistent with the Governor’s Executive Order 20-81, employees, students and visitors are required to wear face coverings in all buildings and other designated spaces, except in locations or circumstances exempt under EO 20-81.
Everyone across campus is responsible for implementing the Back-to-Campus Preparedness Plan to help mitigate the potential for the transmission of COVID-19. This requires full cooperation among students, faculty, staff and all other members of the campus community. Only through a cooperative effort, can we establish and maintain the wellness of the Minneapolis College campus community. Campus leaders, supervisors, employees and students are responsible for implementing and complying with all aspects of this plan. Minneapolis College leaders and supervisors are fully supported in enforcing its provisions.
The wellness of students and employees are the guiding principles for this plan. Input from across the campus is encouraged to develop and implement the plan successfully. Please learn more about these measures and additional resources below.
