“We will continue to follow all of our established safety precautions and protocols, including social distancing, mask requirement and a required self-screening assessment prior to entering campus. Our COVID-19 team has been working directly to provide guidance to individuals in our college community who may exhibit symptoms or come into contact with others who have COVID-19,” according to an email sent Thursday by Katryn Conlin, communications director for the college.

“Our primary goal is to keep our campuses safe and limit the spread of COVID-19. We are constantly monitoring the situation on both our Red Wing and Winona campuses, and are prepared to pivot if it becomes necessary. We will continue to work to ensure that students are able to continue their educations. Our instructors are prepared to flex course delivery methods as needed, either on a course-by-course basis or campus-wide basis, depending on the particular situation,” the email said.  Read the full story
