Masking Required in On-Campus Indoor Spaces, August 10-31

Masking will be required while in indoor public spaces on the Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College campuses beginning Tuesday, August 10, and continuing through at least Friday October 1, 2021.

As we enter the final preparations for our fall semesters, we’re reminded that COVID-19 is a reality we must continue to face with courage and diligence. During today’s campus forums, we announced our strategies to combat the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Beltrami County.

While we are announcing upcoming mask requirements, we are not altering other campus operations

Thank you ALL for your patience and understanding.
