Minnesota colleges creating their COVID‐19 Preparedness Plan must provide for implementation of Minnesota OSHA Standards and MDH and CDC Guidelines in classrooms, labs, or other areas that students and staff may visit. These requirements are set forth in guidance published by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (“Plan Guidance”), adaptable to higher education institutions.

Postsecondary institutions can conduct in‐person classes (credit and non‐credit) and activities (ex., testing, student services, advising, internships, clinical rotations, customized training, campus visits, etc.) across all programs to all students, as long as:

  • those services cannot be provided through a distance learning model
  • the group size is no larger than 25 (including instructors)
  • institutions meet the requirements outlined in the requirements section (see Executive Order 20‐74 Guidance).
