Covid Information

We are watching the continued evolution of the virus that causes COVID-19 and the new variant, BA.5. It is reported that this is the most easily spread strain so far, and that the best ways to protect yourself from infection are to get vaccinated and boosted and to continue good hygiene by washing your hands frequently and thoroughly.

In consultation with our public health experts, we have determined we will continue to not require masks campuswide. Faculty members may request that others wear masks in their individual classes. At the same time, though masks aren’t required on campus, individuals should feel free to continue wearing a mask based on their individual circumstances.

Consistent with ND Department of Health, we will continue to ask people who are infected or close contacts who are unvaccinated to avoid campus during their five-day isolation period. Free testing kits can be picked up at the NDSU Bookstore, Library or Student Health Service.

Cass County data is available in the North Dakota Department of Health data.
