This past year has taken a huge toll on all of you — on your physical and mental health, on your education, and perhaps on your family’s economic or job situation. We cannot thank you enough for how you have pulled together as a community from the start of this pandemic. It’s hard to believe that we have been dealing with this for over one year now. Your grace, compassion, and resilience has been an inspiration to us. You have epitomized all the values that we hold dear as a Lasallian Catholic community.

With that being said, we must continue to be vigilant against this insidious virus. The governor has eased COVID-19 restrictions. Vaccines are being administered in our local communities, However, all of this is occurring as highly contagious variants are gaining ground in our state. These variants are more easily transmitted. It is unclear if the state’s vaccination programs will stay ahead of the variants taking hold in Minnesota.

We want to remind you of how vitally important it is to continue compliance with our COVID-19 protocols. Please continue to wear your mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands frequently. Thankfully, we are not seeing any increases in our COVID-19 numbers at this time, but other colleges and universities are.

Let’s continue doing what we need to do to stay safe, to keep others safe, and to take care of each other during these trying times.
