|Yesterday, the System Office issued new guidance, based on updated CDC metrics. Per these new metrics, we will not require masks on the Inver Hills campus. This will go into effect Thursday, March 3.|
|We will continue to honor and respect the choices that any individual makes to continue to wear a mask and to be treated respectfully. We ask that you also respect their choice. Harassment or bullying of students or staff will not be tolerated and Inver Hills will continue to address this type of behavior accordingly.|
|Please review these additional COVID updates for our Inver Hills campus: We will continue to follow CDC isolation and guidelines. We will continue to require weekly student case reporting through the existing reporting process at least through the remainder of the spring semester. Students need to continue to report a positive COVID case to Kari Rusch-Curl, Interim Vice President of Student Affairs or at 651-450-3887. Campus clinical settings, such as student health centers, dental clinics, etc., will remain subject to indoor masking requirements until that guidance changes. Effective Monday, March 14, there will no longer be a proof of vaccination or testing requirement for students in activities designated by the college or university such as student sports or clubs. For the time being, Inver Hills will continue to require Proof of Vaccination and Testing for employees, contractors, and vendors per the MMB HR/LR policy #1446, COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination and Testing. MMB has indicated that they will be reviewing and updating this policy in the coming weeks and we will update our campus community should this requirement change. Facilities will follow a rigorous and consistent protocol for cleaning the campus. The daily cleaning routine includes all common areas, conference rooms, and used labs and classrooms at the end of each business day. Campus COVID signage and the Inver Hills COVID website will be updated as soon as possible.|
|We will continue to monitor case counts on campus and in Dakota County and will communicate should we need to restore any mitigation strategies-including masking. Thank you for your past and continued efforts to keep our campus community safe.|
