SUBJECT: COVID-19 Weekly Update
DATE: September 7, 2021

Every Tuesday, the Gustavus COVID-19 Response Leadership Team will send out a weekly update that includes tips and reminders, policy updates, and information about on-campus COVID-19 cases. These messages are sent to all students, faculty, and staff along with Gustavus parents who have an email address on file with the College.


#1 – The Book Mark, located on the lower level of the Jackson Campus Center, has a limited number of extra cloth masks available for free to members of the College community. If you would like another cloth mask or to replace one that is worn out, stop by the Book Mark this week.

#2 – Wondering what to do if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or develop symptoms? It depends on your vaccination status! Please see the handy reference chart below for what to do if you test positive, develop symptoms, or are exposed to COVID-19 based on your vaccination status. Please note that all members of the community, regardless of vaccination status, should complete the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form if they have symptoms or test positive.


As of September 6, 2021
Total Positive Cases (since August 15, 2021): 2
Current Positive Student Cases: 0
Current Positive Employee Cases: 0
Total Students in Isolation/Quarantine: 0

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, along with statistics from the 2020-2021 academic year, is also available for viewing on the College’s COVID-19 Dashboard History page.

As always, if you have any questions, please consult the College’s COVID-19 website and email
