Minnesota’s second ommicron COVID-19 case confirmed

The second confirmed state case of a COVID-19 infection by the omicron variant has been linked to a person affiliated with Minnesota State University, Mankato.

In a letter sent to faculty, staff and students Friday, University President Edward Inch wrote that the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) notified the university that the state’s second omicron case had been identified in a vaccinated person at the university that recently tested positive.

“The person is doing well and following proper isolation protocols,” Inch wrote.

Due to its recent development and connection to the campus, Inch wrote that Saturday’s commencement ceremonies require face masks.

Inch encouraged everyone to get vaccinated and get a booster. In addition, the university will make COVID-19 tests available on campus on Tuesday.

MDH did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
