Vaccinations are now available to everyone 12 and older in the state of Minnesota. Riverland will not require vaccines but will continue to encourage vaccinations to all students and employees. Explore this link for resources
Please continue to stay home if you are feeling ill and encourage others to do the same.
Continue handwashing practices and use sanitizer when handwashing is not possible.
Business that rent space in our campus buildings may have their own safety protocols. Please check with them directly to determine what restrictions they may have.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
We no longer require the screening tool prior to coming to campus and our entrances will be cleared. You will see more doors to each building are now open.
Riverland lifted the mask mandate for those who have been vaccinated. If you have not been fully vaccinated for 14 days, we still encourage you to wear a face covering. We want everyone to feel safe. Employees and students who still feel more comfortable wearing face coverings are welcome to do so.
Social Distancing signage and markers will be removed but maintaining distance from others is still a best practice. There is no longer a need to limit class sizes because of social distancing requirements. We will restore class furniture arrangement to pre-covid status. The only caveat is if local infection and vaccination rates dictate otherwise.
Some Academic programs may require personal protective equipment (PPE) if required by that industry/program or if very close contact is imminent. Expectations will be communicated by your instructor(s).
