Return from Fall Break

Dear MCAD Community,

As friends and families gather together over the upcoming fall break, I want to wish you a restful, healthy holiday.

With COVID-19 numbers on the rise statewide, I encourage you to think about your health and wellness regardless of your holiday plans. The MCAD community has done such a remarkable job of keeping our virus number extremely low and we want to keep it that way.

Most of us have reached the time where the efficacy of the original vaccine has decreased. We strongly encourage all students, staff, and faculty to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 booster vaccine. If asked, you may truthfully state that you live and work in a “high risk” environment which includes colleges. These vaccine boosters are available at many clinics and major pharmacies. To find a provider in Minnesota, go to MN Vaccine Connector.

When you return to campus, there is no need to quarantine unless you are experiencing COVID symptoms. For your convenience we are expanding the hours of the free MCAD COVID Rapid Testing Clinic on Friday, November 19 through the end of the semester. These extended hours allow our community to start testing prior to leaving campus and upon return.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email staysafe@mcad.edu.

My best to you all,
Sanjit
