Dear Saint Mary’s community,
As more updates and new information become available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) around the increased cases of COVID-19 due to the effects from the delta variant, we are mindful of our commitment to safety for all on our campuses.
We continue to closely monitor federal, state, and local guidelines. We are also monitoring other universities and looking at current case levels in and around our surrounding campus communities. As was the case last year, we know it is imperative to plan and, when necessary, adjust those plans.
We are sending this out now to ask for your support and flexibility as changes to our policies and protocols may need to be made quickly and will certainly evolve throughout the coming days and weeks ahead.
We will communicate frequently with our Saint Mary’s community as information and decisions are made. Thank you for your continued support. We remain steadfast and resilient.
Senior Vice President and General Counsel
