    Please note: If you receive a positive test and are currently living, learning or working on campus, you must self-report using either the student or employee self-report forms on OneStThomas.

    The Campus Response Plan requires community members who are living, learning, working or otherwise spending time on campus to report a positive test result. Students and employees who are entirely remote are not required to self-report.

    All known active cases and close contacts have been instructed to isolate or quarantine per Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Individuals who have been instructed to isolate or quarantine may only participate in work, class and campus activities virtually until their period of isolation or quarantine is completed.

    How to Get a Vaccine

    The University of St. Thomas is requiring all students, faculty and staff to be vaccinated for the fall 2021 term in addition to wearing face coverings in indoor public spaces when others are present. This decision is driven by our desire to provide a safe, high-quality and uninterruped experience for everyone this fall.

    How to Get a Vaccine on Campus

    The university has a limited amount of COVID-19 vaccine doses available through the Center for Well-Being. You may register for a vaccination online at the Center for Well-Being MyHealth Portal.
