PTCC continues to work closely with the Minnesota State System Office and the Minnesota Department of Health to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and take steps necessary to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff as well as campus visitors. Please submit your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Minnesota State has developed a dashboard for reporting the COVID-19 case data that is impacting the colleges, universities, and the system office. The dashboard is updated weekly and serves as a tool to inform campus communities about changes in COVID-19 cases and community spread and aid campus leadership decision making. View the Minnesota State COVID-19 Dashboard here.
PTCC would like employees and students to self-report if they are symptomatic of COVID-19, tested positive for COVID-19 or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
It is important that all individuals who are symptomatic, tested positive, or have been in close contact with some who has tested positive follow the attached guidelines. The guidelines provide timelines for when it is safe to return to campus.
To find out more information about how Pine is addressing the health and safety of our employees and students please review the Pine Technical and Community College Preparedness Plan.

The CDC has provided this Fact Sheet outlining steps to help prevent the disease from spreading to people:
We encourage students, faculty and staff to practice respiratory (coughing and sneezing) etiquette and hand hygiene. Those who feel sick are recommended to stay home until they are free of fever, signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants). Employees should notify their supervisor and stay home if they are sick and seek medical attention depending on the severity of their symptoms.
