As of September 1, 2023, MSP will no longer require proof of COVID vaccination to be on campus. To mitigate risk and potential disruption to campus activities and learning, we strongly recommend that students, faculty and staff stay up-to-date on their vaccinations. MSP is dedicated to the health and well-being of our community and reserves the right to reinstate a vaccination requirement should current levels of COVID merit a change.

We continue to offer a mix of in-person events and online events. We learned during the pandemic that many events can be held successfully over Zoom.

As of September 1, 2023, masks are optional for all members of the MSP community. However, if you are exposed to COVID, and/or experiencing COVID symptoms, and/or test positive for COVID, see guidance below for mask wearing requirements.  

MSP has hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and masks available in all communal areas, offices and classroom. 

Air filtration units are located in each classroom and communal spaces for community use, and air flow adjustments were made to the buildings’ heating and cooling systems.

All classes are fully in-person and on-campus. There is no longer the option for full remote attendance. If you test positive and are required to quarantine, per MSP policy and current health department guidelines, you will be allowed to attend class remotely while in the mandatory quarantine period.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID, please test for COVID immediately. 

Experiencing symptoms and positive test

If you are experiencing COVID symptoms and test positive, do not come to campus. You must notify Director of Student Services Carrie Pyeatt ([email protected]) and your faculty to adjust your attendance.

You may not return to in-person attendance until at least 5 days have passed since you first received a positive test, you are fever-free for 24 hours, and all symptoms are reduced.

If you feel well enough, you will be allowed to attend class remotely while in the mandatory quarantine period. Once you are symptom free and the quarantine period has passed, you will then be required to wear a mask for 5 additional days upon return to campus.
