FROM: COVID-19 Response Leadership Team

SUBJECT: COVID-19 Weekly Update

DATE: March 19, 2021
If you’ve received the vaccine and are at least two weeks past your last dose, you do not have to quarantine if you’re exposed to someone with COVID-19. You should still get tested if you have COVID symptoms, as COVID-19 may still be spread by vaccinated individuals.
Gustavus COVID safety protocols do not change for those who have been vaccinated. Even after an individual has received two doses of the vaccine, it is important that they continue to follow all public health guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes staying home when sick, wearing a mask, staying six (6) feet from others, washing your hands, following isolation requirements, and getting tested when needed.
As of March 18, 2021

Total Positive Cases (since August 15): 266

Current Positive Student Cases: 2
Current Positive Employee Cases: 2
Total Students in Isolation/Quarantine: 11
Students in Isolation/Quarantine On Campus: 8
Employees in Isolation/Quarantine: 2
This data set is meant to encompass the on-campus impact of COVID-19 by counting cases where a person may have been on campus while infectious. For example, students who are living at home or employees who are working remotely and not visiting campus will not be counted in these on-campus numbers. This information is also available for viewing on the College’s COVID-19 Dashboard.
As always, if you have any questions, please consult the College’s COVID-19 website and email
