Notes

The Campus Preparedness Plan requires community members who are living, learning, working or otherwise spending time on campus to report a positive test result.  Students and employees who are entirely remote are not required to self-report.
 
 
The Center for Well-Being (CWB) administered 13 COVID-19 tests, with 2 positive results, between Aug. 29 – Sept. 4. Previously, CWB administered 184 COVID-19 tests with 21 positive results from April through Aug. 28. The Center currently only tests patients who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms and/or have been in close contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. The rate of positive tests will likely be higher than those institutions testing both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.

 

The current number of known active cases in the university community is within a manageable range based on measures outlined in the Campus Preparedness Plan

 

All known active cases and close contacts have been instructed to isolate or quarantine per Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Individuals who have been instructed to isolate or quarantine may only participate in work, class and campus activities virtually until their period of isolation or quarantine is completed.

The University of St. Thomas is adhering to guidance provided by the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control. Current guidelines do not advise mass asymptomatic testing.
