Mid-semester updates for Spring 2022

Posted on

With the change in CDC guidelines and new guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health, along with low COVID-19 transmission rates in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, Augsburg University has made changes to some of its policies.

  • Currently masks are no longer required for vaccinated individuals, except at specific events or in the classroom at the request of a faculty member. Unvaccinated individuals must still wear masks indoors on campus.
  • We have updated our guest policy to allow visitors who do not live on campus in the residence halls.

Because vaccines and testing are part of successfully managing COVID-19, Augsburg is also offering a vaccine clinic on March 30 for anyone who would like to receive a first, second, or booster dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. This event is open to all members of the Augsburg community as well as the general public ages 5 and older. 

In addition, Augsburg offers free testing for students, staff, and faculty on Mondays and Thursdays, 4:30-6:30 p.m., in Gundale Chapel.

Augsburg continues to monitor trends and MDH guidance for higher education institutions. We may change our policies in the future if the situation warrants it.
