What if I have been exposed to COVID-19?

Monday – Friday

A true exposure is close contact (6-feet or less for 15 minutes or more) with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19. For COVID-19 testing to be accurate, the test needs to be conducted at least five days after the initial exposure. If you are confident you meet this criterion, you can call 320-363-5605 to be scheduled for testing at the appropriate campus location.

If you are unsure if you were exposed, you can call 320-363-5370 (RN Triage/COVID Callback Line) to consult with an RN.

What do I do if I receive a positive test result from an off-campus test site? 

If you test positive for COVID-19 at an off-campus testing location, immediately notify the Student COVID-19 Coordinator Team at [email protected].

Students who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate at their permanent residence. If unable to isolate at permanent residence, students will be moved into isolation space on campus.
