COVID-19 Awareness During Commencement Weekend
Luther Seminary is very excited to celebrate baccalaureate and commencement with our 2022 graduates and guests this weekend!
We are asking all attendees at commencement and baccalaureate to pay attention to how they are feeling and stay home if you feel unwell or test positive to do our best to ensure the health and wellbeing of all.
Please review the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines on what to do if you are feeling sick or test positive for COVID-19.
If you have symptoms:
Stay home until all three of the following are true:
– It has been five days since you first felt sick. Day zero is the day your symptoms started. Day one is the first full day after your symptoms started.
– You have had no fever (your temperature is 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) for at least 24 hours, without using medicine that lowers fevers.
– You feel better. Your cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms are better.
You can resume most activities on day six. If you do not feel better at the end of five days, continue to stay home until all the above are true.
In addition, the Minnesota Department of Health encourages to test for COVID-19 prior to a gathering.
Office of the Registrar Closed
The Office of the Registrar will be closed for commencement preparation and clean up on Friday, June 3, and Monday, June 6. The office will reopen and respond to emails on Tuesday, June 7.
