Aug. 5: Minnesota State Health Screening Required For Campus Access

Beginning August 10, all visitors to Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College will be required to complete an online health self-assessment questionnaire before being granted access to campus as part of continuing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The online health screening tool is part of a system-wide initiative by the Minnesota State system of colleges and universities and is being implemented at each of the system’s 37 colleges and universities and at the system’s offices in St. Paul.

All visitors to campus — including faculty, staff, administrators, employees and students — will be required to complete the survey each day before visiting either the BSU or NTC campuses. Once completed, the screening tool will either indicate that a person is cleared to visit campus, or indicate that they are not allowed to come to campus for health-related reasons. Persons cleared to visit campus will receive an email from the survey tool indicating that they are cleared, and once on campus should be prepared to produce this email if requested to do so.

The web-based screening tools are available at:

Links to the surveys are also available at and

If a person intends to visit both campuses in the same day, the survey need be completed only once. It includes an option to receive clearance to visit both campuses during the same day.

Visitors who lack appropriate technology to complete the web-based survey can complete the screening tool in person. Visitors to BSU can check in at the welcome center located inside doors A-B-C of Deputy Hall, while NTC visitors will find surveys located inside each public entrance to the campus.
