Frequently Asked Questions

Please reference frequently-asked-questions prepared by Minnesota State. 




The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases. Symptoms that may appear 2-14 days after exposure include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you do get sick, the CDC advises to stay home and call your doctor or healthcare provider and let them know about your symptoms. Tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help them take care of you and keep other people from getting infected or exposed. If you are not sick enough to be hospitalized, you can recover at home. Follow CDC instructions for how to take care of yourself at home.
