Throughout the United States, COVID-19 cases are rising, and Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is dedicated to keeping our students safe and mitigating the risks associated with travel. The travel notification form has been updated to collect more specific details (purpose, method of travel). In addition, students should now notify the university of travel at least 48 hours before departure. This will provide us with the necessary information and time to review and follow up as necessary.
As of Sept. 30, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified the following states as hot spots: Texas, California, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Illinois. Travel to these states is not advised, and students may be required to quarantine upon returning to Saint Mary’s.
