Keep up the good work

September 17, 2020



A big thank you again for adhering to the COVID-19 guidelines. We are another week closer to our goal of being on campus through November. Please continue to assist the university and your peers with obtaining this goal.

If you are not feeling well, you are strongly encouraged to contact the Jay Johnson Wellness Center at 507-457-1492. You can talk to staff within the Wellness Center, and they can give you guidance on what to watch for as it relates to COVID-19 and take a COVID-19 test if needed. For those who may test positive for COVID-19 or need to quarantine because they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, we will do all we can to assist so you do not fall behind academically.

I know we are doing well as a community, and once again commend us for that, but it’s important we continue to look out for one another, adhere to the guidelines set forth, and be cautious when off campus.

Together, we are Saint Mary’s, and together, we will obtain our goal of being in Winona throughout the semester.


Tim Gossen, Ed.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs

COVID-19 reminders:

  • Contact the Wellness Center if you’ve been tested for COVID-19 off campus and are awaiting results or if you’ve tested positive. The Wellness Center will work with other campus departments to notify faculty of your absence and provide meal delivery to your room if you’re an on-campus student.
  • Monitor yourself for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, or loss of taste or smell. This is to protect yourself, your friends, and our Saint Mary’s community.
  • All external guests (family or off-campus friends) must adhere to all our COVID-19 guidelines and are not allowed in the residence halls. You are able to meet your guests in the parking lot and go off campus or walk around campus with a mask on.

Have a question or concern? Fill out the form and let us know.
