When an on-campus case of COVID-19 is reported (as happened last week), that person is first asked to stay off-campus and quarantine in accordance with CDC guidelines. In addition, the seminary takes two steps for contact tracing:
1. The Minnesota Deptartment of Health is notified, per guidelines for institutions of higher education
2. The person reporting the case is asked to identify “close contacts”; the close contacts identified are notified of the exposure and asked to follow CDC guidelines for testing and quarantining (quarantine applies only to close contacts who are unvaccinated).
The CDC defines a close contact as someone who has been within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more during a 24 hour period. Passing in the hall or a single brief interaction is not considered close contact. Please use this link to learn more about CDC guidelines on close contacts, quarantine and isolation: CDC guidelines.
