Dear Student,
We hope you are well as you prepare for the start of the fall semester. As you know, cases of COVID-19 have been increasing again, especially among those who are unvaccinated.  The Chancellor has directed colleges and universities that reside in counties that have “substantial” or “high” levels of transmission to adopt CDC guidelines and recommend masks indoors for everyone.  All Metro counties have moved into the “substantial” list (see CDC COVID Data Tracker).
As a COVID-19 mitigation measure, Inver Hills is under a mask mandate for the campus effective Monday, August 9.  This mandate will be in effect for all students, staff, and guests while on campus regardless of vaccination status.  The CDC recommends this step because the latest research finds that vaccinated individuals can spread the delta variant to others.  We will continue to monitor rates during this mandate and adjust our approach as we see rates change.
I strongly encourage you to get vaccinated. For your convenience, Inver Hills Community College will be hosting a FREE mobile vaccine unit on August 24 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the small College Center parking lot.  You are more than welcome to make an appointment or drop in to this clinic.  No insurance card, state ID, or other documentation is required! The Inver Hills COVID website also lists community vaccination resources.

Please plan to bring a clean mask with you anytime you come to campus. Should you forget, masks will be available in the College Center at the Welcome Desk. Security personnel will be roaming on campus to enforce the mask mandate. Please maintain the 3-6 foot social distance within the classrooms, labs, and common areas.
Your health and safety continue to be our top priority.  We are taking this measure to ensure you are able to safely continue your education.  Thank you for your continued support in these efforts.  Have a good fall semester and enjoy the remaining days of summer.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
