Under revised CDC guidance, effective August 9, 2021, all individuals on campus must wear a mask and social distance regardless of vaccine status except where required by federal, state, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations.
Effective Monday, August 9, 2021, all employees, students, vendors and guests must wear a mask while on campus at DCTC regardless of vaccination status.
We are taking this mitigation measure in response to the increase in cases of COVID-19, including the Delta variant, especially among the unvaccinated. Dakota County is now at a “high” level of transmission (CDC COVID Data Tracker). The CDC recommends this step because the latest research finds that vaccinated individuals can spread the Delta variant to others. We will continue to monitor rates during this mandate and adjust our approach should transmission rates change.
Social Distancing/Capacity Limitations
As a COVID-19 mitigation effort, campus classrooms will require 3 feet of social distancing. In other campus locations, 6 feet of social distancing should be maintained. Limits on size and capacity restrictions for indoor and outdoor events will be lifted.

COVID Health Screening Questionnaire Tool

COVID Status Dashboard
With the increase in vaccinations, reported cases on campus have decreased. Per guidance from Minnesota State, we no longer need to reflect the COVID status level alert on campus.
