How is Saint Paul College Responding to Coronavirus?

Two key priorities are guiding all of the decisions Saint Paul College leadership are making during this crisis:

  1. Assuring the health and safety of all faculty, students, and staff by strictly following the guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  2. Doing everything possible to ensure that students can successfully complete their educational goals for this term.

National Coronavirus Guidance and Information

​The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have provided this Fact Sheet on COVID-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/2019-ncov-factsheet.pdf


  
National Coronavirus Guidance and Information

Because we are also working hard to keep Saint Paul College faculty, staff, and students safe and healthy, we are also asking those with a diagnosis of COVID-19 from a health care provider to voluntarily self-report that information to Public Safety.​​

Remote Instruction and Student Support Services

Saint Paul College has developed a list of free and low-cost Internet access and computer resources.  Additional information on how to succeed as a remote learner has also been prepared for you.

​Most importantly, get vaccinated! Information regarding vaccination locations and details about the vaccine can be found on the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) website here​.  Second, if you are sick, stay at home and do not go out until all signs of illness go away. That means staying at home until you are free of fever, signs of a fever, coughing, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours.  You also should not leave home until those signs of illness are possible without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g., cough medicine).

Third, practice recommended respiratory (coughing and sneezing) etiquette and hand cleaning advice.  Also, wear a cloth mask when you do have to go out to help prevent spreading or contracting the coronavirus. ​

  
Remote Instruction and Student Support Services

All Saint Paul College faculty, staff, and leadership are dedicated to helping you succeed in your educational goals by providing various options for course delivery. Th​ere are options for remote learning, in-person learning or a combination of both depending on your area of study.  You are strongly encouraged to try these new remote approaches or seek out in-person instruction through the many classes which are returning to campus in the fall of 2021.  Minnesota State leadership is examining further options for completing coursework, grading policies, and other options that will be communicated by official college email when those decisions are made.

​With vaccination options now readily available to all adults, and limited youth population ages 12-15, across the metro region, the College is slowly bringing classes and services back to campus in response to the decline in new coronavirus cases across the state and country. The College will still ​require wearing cloth face coverings while on campus, following physical distancing guidance, group size limitations, and frequent surface disinfecting routines to help mitigate the risk of coronavirus exposure on campus. Health and safety guidance from MDH and the CDC will be monitored and campus operations may be adjusted if cases begin to rise or an outbreak occurs in our community. Information will be communicated to the college community if and when these changes occur.
