The Law School currently has no COVID restrictions in place. Per the guidance of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), President Gabel lifted the University's mask mandate for University common areas and events; policies requiring proof of vaccination/negative COVID tests were only applicable to events of 200+ guests and have also been lifted. Guests are encouraged to take whatever precautions make them most comfortable (including masking) and many of our venues do have access to an outdoor patio. We will continue to follow MDH, CDC, University, and local guidance to follow COVID precautions and ensure a safe event.
