COVID-19 Information

Health Service

As Gustavus emerges from what we hope will be the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are called to continue our commitment to the safety, health, and wellbeing of every member of the campus community. The College continues to use evidence-based information from the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention to inform the expected behaviors for all members of the Gustavus community. Gusties, let’s continue to ROAR - Respect Others, Act Responsibly.
