Info on Minnesota State-related travel with concerns over Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Minnesota State Chancellor Devinder Malhotra sent a memo to all college and university presidents on Friday, February 28, suspending all Minnesota State related international travel, effectively immediately, which includes study abroad programs and any other activities faculty, staff, and students. At this point, the Chancellor’s office and other system officials are monitoring reports and taking guidance/recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. State Department, and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and will be reviewing action on a recurring basis.

President Rogers and members of her cabinet have been in communication with the Minnesota State system office, as well as other colleges and universities in the region, the City of Duluth and local healthcare providers. We all continue to monitor the situation very carefully and will provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, Minnesota State has suggested the following resources.

  • Information for schools, colleges and universities is available at MDH.
  • At this time, MDH assesses the risk of becoming sick with COVID-19, including for people in Minnesota schools, as low. To date, there have been no positive cases of COVID-19 reported at any Minnesota State college or university or at the system office.
  • Encourage students and employees to:
  • Practice respiratory (coughing and sneezing) etiquette and hand hygiene
  • Stay at home when sick
  • Encourage supervisors and faculty to offer flexibly to employees and students who are sick, expressing symptoms of respiratory issues, or care for family members to the maximum extent possible.
  • Anyone in the U.S. who has not traveled to China or been in contact with someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 in the last 14 days is at low risk of becoming sick with the virus
  • Cautioning all on actions and language against anyone based on race, ethnicity, or religion based on the origins of COVID-19.
