Staying Safe During Summer Semester

South Central College, in coordination with the Minnesota State system and healthcare agencies, has implemented the following procedures to ensure a safe return to the campus.

Safety Protocols

  • Face Coverings:  Per the Governor's order, face coverings are no longer required on campus.  However, if you have not yet been fully vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends you still wear a face covering.

  • Campus Entrances: Visit the Student Services During Summer Semester page for more information

  • Social Distancing: Everyone is required to continue to maintain a distance of at least six feet from others when on campus.  Socializing in groups outside of classrooms/labs is also discouraged, with formal gathering spaces continuing to be closed at this time.  
  •  COVID-19 Symptoms, Positive Test or Exposure: If you are experiencing symptoms, have tested positive, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, please do not come to campus. You should begin a period of quarantine for 14 days from the date of last contact with the positive case and contact your instructor.
