SUBJECT: COVID19 Weekly Update

DATE: April 30, 2021
Vaccines are now widely available in Minnesota and all Gustavus students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to get vaccinated. Visit the Gustavus Vaccine Resources webpage to learn more and follow links to schedule your vaccine today.
If you are vaccinated in Minnesota, the Gustavus Health Service will automatically receive record of your vaccination through the state’s secure immunization records database. If you receive your vaccine somewhere besides Minnesota and want to upload your vaccination status, or if you’re vaccinated in Minnesota and want to be sure the record was received, please visit the Gustavus Health Portal.
The College is excited to share that based on the data available through the Minnesota Immunization Information Center, at least 68% of students and 81% of employees are already partially or fully vaccinated against COVID19. Keep up the good work, Gusties!
As of April 29, 2021

This data set is meant to encompass the on-campus impact of COVID19 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 COVID19 Dashboard.
As always, if you have any questions, please consult the College’s COVID19 website and email
