Minnesota State College Southeast reports confirmed cases of COVID-19 on its website at every Wednesday, and as the fall semester ends, those case numbers remain low. "Fortunately, the college community has had a low incidence of confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date," said Larry Lundblad, interim president. "The on-campus safety protocols that include social distancing, masks, daily online self-assessment, hand hygiene, and sanitation have been working."

Even before the pandemic, about 40% of instruction at MSCSE was online and students don't live in campus housing or share meals in dining halls, both factors in reducing the risk of transmission. 

"People have been really good about communicating with college administration about transmission concerns, exposure, or COVID-19 symptoms," said Josiah Litant, vice president of student affairs, "so we’ve been able to mitigate transmission to a large extent across both of our campuses."
