The North Dakota Department of Health released information on the Delta variant. We encourage you to review the fact sheet and protect yourself with a vaccine.
No Masks Required
UND no longer requires masks on campus, though individuals who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue wearing masks and practice physical distancing.
COVID-19 vaccine is widely available. We encourage you to get vaccinated to protect yourself and others. Two weeks after completing your vaccination series, you do not need to quarantine if you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19 or get tested regularly (unless you have symptoms).
Student Health Services Vaccine
COVID-19 vaccines are available to UND students, faculty and staff.
Appointments for vaccines are available to at UND Student Health Services in McCannel Hall, Room 100.
To schedule appointments:
- UND Students: Use your My Health Patient Portal or call 701.777.4500.
- UND Faculty and Staff: Call 701.777.4500.
We encourage all UND students, faculty and staff to get tested regularly and frequently.
- UND students are able to get tested at UND Student Health Services Monday through Friday.
- Community testing is available through Grand Forks Public Health at the Pollard Athletic Center Monday through Friday.
- All are encouraged to contact their own healthcare provider for testing if these testing events are not available.
Fall 2021 Plans
UND is planning to return to a full campus experience for the fall semester. Classes will be offered on-campus, online or hybrid — very similar to how UND classes were offered before COVID-19.
Our plan is to return to more typical operations including:
- In-person classes with typical class sizes
- In-person internships
- In-person events
- Other in-person learning experiences
The transition plan to move from our current status to a more normal fall term will be possible with increased vaccinations, the mitigated spread of COVID-19 and is based on the advice of public health experts.
