COVID-19 Campus Data
Isolation is used to separate people infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from people who are not infected.
Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has a helpful infographic to understand the difference between isolation and quarantine. View the graphic by clicking here.
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has several classifications indicating risk levels for transmission. Those Indicator Levels are 1) Low, 2) Medium, 3) High, and 4) Sustained Levels of High Transmission. Each of these Indicator Levels have correlated guidance for operational actions and restrictions. Effective November 2, 2020, Bethany is operating at Level 3 (High) due to recent increases in positive tests and a high on-campus isolation and quarantine situation. Level Three recommendations being implemented include but are not limited to: required face coverings, enforced social distancing, limited on-campus events, reduced dining center capacities, athletic team practice in pods, and weight rooms and fitness centers are closed. The Alert Level is monitored on an ongoing basis.
