Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

BSU and NTC continue to work closely with the Minnesota State system office 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 covid@bemidjistate.edu.

If You Feel Ill

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) recommends:

    1. Self-isolate or quarantine immediately.
    2. Monitor your health, contact your healthcare as needed.

In addition, BSU and NTC also asks that you:

  • Contact the Student Center for Health Counseling (SCHC) at 218-755-2053 during regular office hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday), your own medical provider, or the COVID-19 contact below for further assistance.
  • Students living on campus should stay in their room and quarantine in place and contact the COVID-19 hotline at 218-755-2901 for more assistance and direction.
  • Contact your faculty members and supervisors to inform them that you will not be attending class or work.
  • Contact the campus COVID-19 hotline at 218-755-2901, or email at covid@bemidjistate.edu, for additional assistance.

Student COVID-19 Reporting Form

BSU and NTC would like students to self-report using our online form if you have tested positive for COVID-19, have been in contact with someone who has, or need to care for someone who has, so that we can help provide you with resources and support.

Safeguard Against COVID-19 and Other Viruses

Viruses don’t discriminate and neither should we. Please be respectful of all members of our campus community. No actions or language should be directed against anyone based on race, ethnicity, or religion based on the origins of COVID-19. Help prevent the spread of the virus:

    • It is important to stay physically distant from, yet socially connected with, others. Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others at all times.
    • Wear a mask or face covering that covers both your mouth and nose. On campus, this is required at all times while indoors, and when outdoors and you cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others.
    • Wash or sanitize your hands often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. This remains one of the most effective ways to keep you healthy.
  • Stay at home when you’re sick
  • Use the CDC website for How to Minimize Spread.

D2L – Converting to Online Courses

The majority of courses at BSU and NTC will now be using D2L Brightspace, at least to some extent. Students should log in to their D2L account now, especially if they have not used it before. Students can expect faculty to update them on how the courses will be completed through email messages or an announcement in their D2L course. Faculty are working on this NOW; don’t panic if they don’t have all the answers or any answers at this point.  Faculty are working hard on this. If you have a question, contact your professor.
