Mesabi Range College COVID Notice

Mesabi Range College holds as paramount the health, safety and welfare of every member of its community. Mesabi Range College, however, cannot guarantee a COVID-19-free environment. Unfortunately, the risk of COVID-19 exposure exists in all public places where people are present. Mesabi Range College is taking all recommended steps to mitigate this risk, but we cannot categorically guarantee you will not get sick. Minimizing the risk of COVID-19 infections (or any other spread of disease) at Mesabi Range College is a shared responsibility. As outlined below, every member of our community – including you – must do their part. Understand that if you return to the physical campus of Mesabi Range College, there is a risk you may contract COVID-19 and that illness, injury or death is a possible result.

The disease is a respiratory virus. It's expelled in droplets from an infected person when they cough, sneeze, sing, etc. The droplets can stay in the air for a few seconds before settling to the ground or a surface. The trajectory of the droplets is usually within 6 feet.

Infection primarily happens when the droplets land on a person or get to a person's mucous membranes (eyes, nose, and mouth). Infection is less common, but possible, when droplets are picked up from surfaces by hands and transferred to eyes, nose and mouth via unwashed hands. Droplets will naturally die on surfaces within hours to days.
