Masks and face coverings

Face coverings, often called masks, can help stop your germs from infecting others. Research has shown that wearing masks reduces the risk of infection, especially when combined with other prevention efforts such as washing your hands often and staying 6 feet away from others.

As of July 25, 2020, per the Governor’s Executive Order, people in Minnesota will be required to wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces, unless you are alone.

COVID-19 Notice

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College holds as paramount the health, safety, and welfare of every member of its community. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, however, cannot guarantee a COVID-19-free environment. Unfortunately, the risk of COVID-19 exposure exists in all public places where people are present. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is taking all recommended steps to mitigate this risk, but we cannot categorically guarantee you will not get sick. Minimizing the risk of COVID-19 infections (or any other spread of disease) at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is a shared responsibility and every member of our campus community must do their part. Understand that if you return to the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College campus, there is a risk you may contract COVID-19 and that illness, injury, or death is a possible result.

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students, faculty, staff, and members of our campus community. All campus community members are responsible for implementing and complying with all aspects of the listed guidelines.

All community members are asked to respect these guidelines. Persons not following these guidelines may be asked to leave the campus or college activity. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College faculty, supervisors, and staff have the full support of college administration in the enforcement of these guidelines.

COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has developed a Preparedness Plan for students while on campus or at off-campus college activities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan utilizes the abundance of guidance offered by the Minnesota Department of Health, Center for Disease Control, and local public health offices.

Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 on our campus or at college activities. By working together, we will protect our college community including the tribal communities we serve. To accomplish this will require full cooperation among students, faculty, staff, visitors, and other members of our campus community. We are all responsible for implementing this plan. Only through a cooperative effort can we establish and maintain the safety and health of our campus community. All campus community members are responsible for implementing and complying with the Preparedness Plan. Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College leaders and supervisors have our full support in enforcing the provisions of this policy.
