COVID-19

November 22: Community Testing Events - Nov. 30 & Dec. 1

Dear CSB/SJU Community:

COVID-19 continues to be active in our communities and across the state of Minnesota. Following the Thanksgiving break, CSB/SJU will be partnering with Ridgewood Lab Diagnostics to bring community testing events to campus. With many students, staff and faculty leaving campus and sharing time with family and friends at home, an increase in COVID cases on campus, and waning vaccine immunity, the risk for COVID-19 transmission in our community is elevated.

This testing event is being held as an added mitigation strategy to ensure we keep our COVID infection rates low on campus by detecting and isolating any new COVID-19 cases early. It is strongly encouraged that you get tested if you left campus or gathered with others over Thanksgiving.

Registration:
