Northwest Technical College Statistics

Minnesota State System Data

Northwest Technical College reports weekly COVID-19 case data to the Minnesota State system. This report defines a “case” of COVID-19 as a person with a lab-confirmed for COVID-19 that has been verified by a Local Public Health entity, or a self-verified positive test, and has had contact with campus or lived within 60 miles of campus while infectious (a).

This system reporting data represents only a subset of the total positive cases that we are aware of among our employees and students. In order to provide as transparent and accurate a picture as possible of the COVID-19 conditions on campus, we are also sharing this more inclusive data.
