Close contact defined
According to the Minnesota Department of Health: “In general, a close contact means being less than 6 feet from someone for 15 minutes or more throughout a 24-hour period. However, even shorter periods of time or longer distances can result in spread of the virus. The longer someone is close to the person who has COVID-19, and the closer they are, the greater the chance the virus can spread.
If you have been on campus and
a) you have tested positive for COVID-19 or
b) you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19:
- Complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form found on this website. Dean Lynn LeMoine will follow up with students and Andrea Bien, Director of Human Resources, will follow up with employees.

Students should review the full list of COVID-19 policies found in the law school catalog.
