You may have seen that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has put out updated guidance on the use of masks in outdoor spaces. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is currently reviewing this new information. However, university policy regarding masking and social distancing has not changed. Due to our highly residential setting on the Winona Campus, masks and social distancing continues to be required of all students, faculty, and staff, regardless of their vaccination status. The university is erring on the side of caution to ensure the safety of our community, especially as we look forward to commencement.
