Twenty-three positive, lab-confirmed COVID-19 tests were reported to St. Thomas' Center for Well-Being for the week ending May 7, 2021. The totals included: 

  • 20 students and three employees
  • 21 individuals from the St. Paul campus and two from Minneapolis 

Information collected by our contact tracers indicate most of these new cases were spread among individuals living together or congregating closely indoors. Please note that face coverings and social distancing remain required in most indoor spaces.

St. Thomas strongly encourages all community members to register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. If you need your first or second dose you may schedule an appointment to receive it at St. Thomas at McCarthy Gym, south campus. Walk-ins will also be accepted, although appointments are preferred.

For more information about vaccines in Minnesota, please visit the MDH vaccine dashboard.

Please note: If you receive a positive test and are currently living, learning or working on campus, you must self-report using either the student or employee self-report forms on OneStThomas. 

The number of cases this week is within a manageable range based on a range of factors:

  • St. Thomas continues to report more than 50% availability of its quarantine and isolation space on campus.
  • The contact tracing team has been able to interview 90-100% of positive cases reported to the university within 24 hours of test results over a 7-day average.

See the historical data from the St. Thomas COVID-19 Dashboard

The University of St. Thomas is adhering to guidance provided by the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control.

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.

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.

*Historical data captures all cases tested at the Center for Well-Being (CWB) and self-reports by students and employees made after the self-report form became available on August 17, 2020, regardless of whether the person has spent time on campus.
