    Hamline University Vaccination Clinic

    Hy-Vee Pharmacy, which has conducted similar events for major Twin Cities corporations, has agreed to conduct the event on our St. Paul campus and administer Pfizer vaccine doses for our Hamline community members ages 16 and older. The second date is scheduled for Thursday, May 20, 2021. More information is available here.

    During the COVID-19 crisis, we ask that all Pipers hold true to Hamline’s core value: “Do all the good you can.” Our mission is to keep all members of our community safe and healthy, and to continue to support one another during this unprecedented and challenging time.

    CampusClear Screening

    No one who is sick, who is diagnosed with COVID-19, who has symptoms of COVID-19, or has been in recent close contact with someone with COVID-19 should come to campus. Doing so puts your health at risk and potentially jeopardizes the health of others on campus.

    Therefore, the university requires that everyone who will be coming onto campus truthfully complete a brief questionnaire using the free CampusClear app EVERY DAY before coming to campus.

    For more information on how to access the CampusClear app and what your answers mean with respect to your clearance to come to campus, please see the Campus Preparedness Plan (8.26.20) and information on the CampusClear App page.

    Students, faculty, and staff should report COVID-19 symptoms, diagnosis, or exposure via the self-reporting forms:

    Wear your mask!

    Hamline has implemented a mask policy, effective until further notice. View the complete face covering policy and FAQs on the mask policy page.

    COVID-19 Shift Plan

    The COVID-19 Shift Plan is designed to provide specific criteria to assess the potential need for changes in Hamline University operations related to the pandemic. Additionally, action steps, divided by functional area, align with the level of determination.

    Data will be gathered daily and applied to the pre-established criteria in the plan. It is important to note that it is unlikely that all criteria will line up under the same level. In those situations the criteria will be generally weighted as follows:

    1. Cases on campus
    2. Quarantine capacity
    3. Testing, tracing, and compliance
    4. Community spread

    Other factors such as state guidance and executive orders will also be considered when determining if campus operations need to be modified. The COVID-19 coordinator will determine if and when recommendations regarding change of operational status or modality should be made.
