As we move forward into the month of February, we wanted to outline for employees our current COVID-19 protocols.  

  • Masking is still required inside all university buildings with the exceptions noted below.  We recommend an N95, KN95 or KF94 mask or doubling up on a cloth mask.
    • Masks are not required in the Gostomski Fieldhouse when you are working out.  You must wear a mask when you enter and leave the facility, when you are moving about in the facility, and when you are going to and from locker rooms.
    • Masks are not required in the Toner Student Dining Hall or the Cardinal Club.  Masks must be worn everywhere else in that building.
  • Physical distancing should continue to be observed.  
  • You should report any positive COVID-19 test whether administered at the university, at an off-site location, or with an at-home test, to
  • Eating is still not permitted in classrooms.
  • Visitors are permitted on all campuses. 
  • The trails on the Winona campus are open to the general public.
  • Spectators are now permitted at athletic events, but they must be masked.
  • You may have in-person meetings with your colleagues, but we still encourage virtual meetings. 

We will examine these protocols mid-February and hope that additional adjustments can then be made.

Together we are Saint Mary’s. Together we are stronger.
