We know that most students are doing all or some of their learning remotely this year, so the state of Minnesota is trying to collect data to help better understand the broadband needs of our state. The MN Speed Test Initiative is working to get more accurate mapping to see where gaps in coverage. We are asking all students to take an internet speed test to help address this concern. The speed test takes less than 30 seconds and is found here:

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, remember that faculty, staff, and visitors must complete our Health Screening prior to coming to campus. You must get a green approval message before coming to campus, every time. If you do test positive for COVID-19, contact Wendy Robinson, the Vice President of Student Affairs at so we can determine if there was any likely exposure to other campus community members.

We know that we are all looking forward to fall and winter holidays. Fall and winter holiday breaks often include large gatherings of families and friends, crowded parties, and travel that may put people at increased risk for COVID-19. We know that these times together are really important, but in an ongoing pandemic with widespread transmission, the safest option right now is for everyone to stay home. We know that this is a big ask, but remember that anytime you gather with people you do not live with, the risk of infection increases for everyone, and that even people without symptoms can spread the virus.  If you do attend an in-person gathering, we encourage you to remember the following best practices:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc.) or who has been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 14 days should not attend – no matter what.
  • Before the gathering, establish the expectation that everyone wear a mask. Consider getting your guests holiday-themed masks as a party favor and encourage everyone to wear a mask until it is time to eat.
  • Arrange your furniture so it is easy for people to stay 6 feet apart. Keep the gathering small – the fewer, the better, but definitely no more than 10 (it’s a Governor’s order!). Write down the guest list in case someone tests positive afterward.
  • Choose activities that you can do while still staying far apart and wearing masks.

We hope you have a wonderful fall and continued good health. Please take care of yourself and your community by following current COVID guidance as we move into the most festive time of the year!
