COVID-19 Testing Incentives for Students
UND students who get tested for COVID-19 will receive a $10 voucher for use at on-campus dining locations in the Memorial Union and Wilkerson Commons.
The vouchers will be available through the 2021 fall semester (Dec. 17) at the following testing locations:
Fritz Pollard Athletic Center
Monday – Friday
7 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Monday – Friday
12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Students can only test once per day and should bring their UND student ID for verification. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated students are encouraged to test frequently.
If you do not have symptoms, it is recommended you not retest for COVID-19 within 90 days from the onset of your illness as your test could remain residually positive. If you do become ill again, consult with your doctor or Student Health Services before testing.
Official international travel through the University to a country listed at a U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory Level 4 is not allowed. Travel to a Travel Advisory Level 3 country needs approval through the Office of the Provost. Travel to countries in Levels 2 and 1 are not restricted at this time. Questions regarding international travel should be directed to Angie Carpenter.
Indoor Mask Mandate
UND continues to monitor the rate of transmission regarding COVID-19 safety precautions. The campus mask requirement will continue until the rate of transmission in Grand Forks County falls below 55 active cases per 100,000/week.
UND requires masks in indoor public spaces defined as:
- Open seating lounges
- Teaching laboratories
- Academic buildings
- Administrative buildings
- Chester Fritz Library
- Student Health Services
- University Children’s Learning Center
- Wilkerson Commons (except when eating)
- Memorial Union (except when eating)
- Not individual offices or private living spaces
University business conducted in non-university facilities, such as admission activities at the Gorecki Alumni Center, are also covered by this requirement.
Masks are strongly encouraged in all other public spaces. These include facilities such as residence hall common areas, campus apartments common areas, the Wellness Center, and athletic facilities. When meetings are scheduled in residence hall common areas, masks will be required.
Widespread use of masks drastically reduces the number of people required to quarantine after a positive case of COVID-19, by the Department of Health policy. This simple step of wearing masks when we are in groups will blunt the impact of quarantines and allow us to most effectively continue or on-campus education.
Getting your flu shot can reduce your likelihood of getting sick or reduce your symptoms of the illness. This not only protects you, it will protect the strain on our health care systems during the pandemic.

UND reports COVID-19 cases in a real-time dashboard.
Student, employee and patient confidentiality laws prohibit disclosure of identities and their test results. These statistics are reflective of information obtained by the University, in close cooperation with local and state health departments. There may be additional positive cases of which the University has not been made aware. Confirmed and active cases at UND should not be considered exhaustive. The numbers reflected are to the best of the University’s knowledge.
