SUBJECT: COVID-19 Weekly Update

DATE: March 26, 2021
As members of the Gustavus community prepare for next weekend’s short break, please be reminded that traveling is still discouraged by public health authorities. Gusties, please be mindful of these public health guidelines and make good choices if you choose to travel.
The Minnesota Department of Health says travel is highly discouraged. Here are tips related to travel.

  • Gusties are encouraged to take part in the campus mass testing event on April 13 after returning from travel.

  • For 14 days after your trip, it is important that you stay away from others and watch for symptoms. If you must go out, be extra cautious about social distancing and wearing a mask that covers your mouth and nose.

For information on testing, visit Getting Tested for COVID-19.

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
