Gustavus Mass-Testing Update
Two more mass testing events will be held before the end of fall semester. These events, held on Thursday, December 3 and Thursday, December 10, will be open to remaining on-campus students, off-campus students residing in Saint Peter, and College employees. Students who are no longer on campus and employees who work 100-percent remotely should not travel to campus for mass testing. With COVID-19 cases in Minnesota still at a high level, these new testing events are to provide a convenient location for testing and to help support planning for students who will be leaving campus after the final exam period.

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 is also available for viewing on the College’s COVID-19 Dashboard.
