Dear campus community,
Good Monday morning.
As we enter the first full week of Winter 2020 classes, please remember our requirements for self-reporting related to COVID-19. These requirements, which lead into the protocol of our Student Resource Team (SRT), have been effective in helping curb the spread of the virus and remain in touch with our students while they need University support.
If you have been in direct contact (within six feet for a time period of 15 minutes or more) with someone who has COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19, you need to report your case. Our protocols are designed to help ensure we can keep our students, faculty, and staff safe and healthy.
- For employees, notify your direct supervisor and human resources. The contact in human resources is Sheila Trammel at 318.257.2235 or email@example.com. Supervisors must maintain strict confidentiality.
- For students, email Stacy Gilbert at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, campus ID, cell phone, whether you live on or off campus, and best method to contact you.
When a student self-reports, they will be assigned to a member of the SRT, who works with them to contact their professors and their on-campus employers. For students who live on campus, we also ensure access to safe housing, meals, and other needed resources.
Depending on whether the student has tested positive or is a direct contact of someone who has tested positive, that student will isolate or quarantine for up to 14 days (time period is under review and may be shortened under certain conditions). The student will email each of their professors – copying their SRT member – to ensure they can continue to make academic progress.
Accommodations for online learning during quarantine or isolation are not required – and those accommodations could not be granted – if students do not follow this protocol.
When the student is cleared to return to campus and class, the student should complete the Return to Campus form and email it to each of their professors, copying their SRT member. The team member will verify the student is cleared to return to campus.
Thank you all for playing your part in keeping our campus community safe and healthy. Please contact Stacy Gilbert (email@example.com) with any questions you may have.
Free PCR testing at the Argent Alumni Pavilion will continue this week. The site is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and the link to register for testing is http://health.questdiagnostics.com/STLOU. Results from this test have been available in two to three days.
Free antigen testing will also continue at Green Clinic’s TechCare location at the Lambright Wellness Center. With this test, results will be available within 30 minutes. Antigen testing – the “quick test” – is most effective when the patient is displaying symptoms that are representative of COVID-19 but could also indicate another viral infection.
The clinic is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and closed for lunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Walk-ins are accepted until 3:45 p.m. You should schedule your free test through TechCare’s online scheduling system at: https://gctechcare.simplybook.me/v2/#book.
