SUBJECT: COVID-19 Weekly Update

DATE: October 5, 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.

With family weekend coming up, members of the Gustavus community are reminded that visitors are allowed on campus. Unlike last year, visitors do not need to register before coming to campus. In accordance with the current masking policy, all visitors are expected to wear masks while inside public campus buildings.
Visitors may go into residence halls, but are asked to keep their masks on. At this time, visitors are not allowed to stay overnight in campus residence halls.

As of October 4, 2021

Total Positive Cases (since August 15, 2021): 12

Current Positive Student Cases: 4
Current Positive Employee Cases: 0
Total Students in Isolation/Quarantine: 4
Students in Isolation/Quarantine On Campus: 2
Employees 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
