Gustavus Adolphus College COVID-19 Weekly Update: March 29, 2022 – The College sends COVID-19 dashboard updates and a tip to students, faculty, and staff every week.Posted on March 31st, 2022 by Barb Larson Taylor
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.
Testing after Spring Break…Members of the community who traveled to areas with medium or high COVID-19 rates or attended large events over spring break are encouraged to attend mass testing tomorrow (Wednesday) from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on the second floor of Lund Center overlooking Gus Young Court. No appointment is needed.
COVID-19 Conditions…Gustavus continues to show low COVID-19 infection rates on campus and the surrounding area remains in the “low” category according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). If conditions remain stable this week, the COVID-19 Response Leadership Team anticipates that there will be a further loosening of the College’s COVID-19 mitigation protocols in the coming days. Gustavus will continue to monitor conditions on campus and in the local area and partner with public health officials to make appropriate updates to campus protocols.
