Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

North House is grateful for the way our community has navigated the many challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, a collaborative effort between students, staff, instructors, and volunteers.

  • At the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, North House cancelled all scheduled on-campus coursework. Crafting in Place was created to knit together a community that couldn't assemble in person.
  • On-campus classes restarted slowly in Fall 2020 with reasonable safety precautions to protect the health of students, instructors and staff.
  • In March 2022, after new CDC guidelines minimized the importance of wearing masks, these safety precautions were updated to no longer recommend wearing masks.
  • In June 2023, these policies were updated to remove recommendations around social distancing and preemptive testing. North House can no longer post signage with the CDC's abandoned "community levels" guidance.

As of March 1, 2024, the CDC no longer delineates specific guidelines for Covid-related isolation.  We encourage everyone to be mindful of their personal health when planning to come to campus. All are welcome to take precautions for themselves, including masking.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at or call 218-387-9762.

We look forward to hosting future classes and events but will stay abreast of the very dynamic realities created by COVID-19. Please check this page before your class begins for the most up-to-date information.
