COVID-19: Current Status

Augsburg University Complying with Governor’s Stay at Home Order; Classes Resume Online March 30

Augsburg University is complying with the executive order to stay at home issued by Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, effective 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 27, through 5 p.m. Friday, April 10. 

Students have been asked to move out of the residence halls, unless granted exceptions. Students’ access is restricted as fobs were turned off to all campus buildings.  Resident students who live on campus retain fob access to their residence hall and the Christensen Center for dining purposes. Classes resumed online Monday, March 30. 

Only employees (including faculty, staff, and student workers) whose roles are deemed critical to university operations have access to campus buildings for work purposes.

The university had already been working under a modified operations plan, which began during Augsburg’s spring break, March 18. All campus events and athletic activities have been canceled. Campus buildings are closed to the public, and social distancing practices have been instituted for those who remain on campus.
