All classes for the remainder of the spring semester will be held online, including the Residential Focus Session scheduled for April 24 – May 2. The Seminary’s leadership team and COVID-19 task force will continue to monitor the situation to determine if additional actions will be needed for June.
Employees Work From Home
Employees who are able to work from home are authorized to do so. If you need or desire to work on campus, please observe the Minnesota Department of Health’s (MDH) guidelines and keep a distance of at least six feet from others. Members of the seminary’s leadership team will schedule regular Zoom meetings to keep employees connected and informed as this situation unfolds.
Campus Closed to Public
Luther Seminary’s campus is closed to the public until further notice. No outside visitors will be permitted in campus buildings, including residential halls, the library, and all Luther Seminary buildings. All buildings will be locked at 5 p.m. each day.
Employee Travel Temporarily Suspended
All business travel has been suspended and employees should not book any travel until further notice. Decisions will be made in the coming weeks on when we will be able to resume travel.
Facility sanitizing is ongoing. Now that all buildings are closed to the public, the facilities staff has implemented a plan to systematically sanitize classrooms, common areas, and offices. Please communicate with your supervisor or, for faculty, the assistant dean if you will be working from home so that your office can also be sanitized.
