As you consider spring break plans, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) highly recommends that you continue to stay safe and stay home. If you must travel, please consider COVID testing before and after any travel – even if you aren’t exhibiting symptoms – since your risk of exposure to the coronavirus during this time of rampant community spread is very high. You can get tested at a Minnesota Department of Health Community Testing Site, https://mn.gov/covid19/get-tested/index.jsp.

COVID Vaccination Update

Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB), working with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), is leading the coordination of and communication about distributing the vaccine to Minnesota State students and employees.

The first goal is to vaccinate those individuals in Phase 1a.  This is primarily healthcare workers, emergency medical service workers, and people living and working in long-term care settings.

Some students/staff will fall into Phase 1a because of work they do in clinical settings or with COVID patients/cases on campus, and some will fall into category 1b because they are 65+, or they are K-12 teachers, or they work in the childcare setting.  However, most students and staff will likely fall into a category that comes after 1b.  Students who may be eligible for the vaccination will be contacted by the college soon.

Information on these vaccination phases can be found on the CDC site at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations.html.  The Inver Hills COVID website also contains Vaccination Frequently Asked Questions as well as other vaccination resources,  https://www.inverhills.edu/covid-19/Vaccinations.aspx.
