Dear campus community,
Good Monday morning.
We have one more week of class until the winter holiday break, and I know many of us are ready for a longer break and the opportunity to be with your family and friends for this special season.
Don’t slack up on the health and safety measures that are so important for keeping your family at home safe and your Tech Family safe when we’re back on campus in the new year. Keep wearing your masks and practicing physical distancing while you’re enjoying the break.
It’s also a good idea to have a COVID-19 test before you head home for break. Testing can help you better protect vulnerable family members, so schedule a test today.
Free PCR testing at the Argent Alumni Pavilion will continue through the end of this year. The Louisiana Army National Guard will take time off Dec. 24-25 and Dec. 31 through Jan. 1. They will be providing testing for most of the holiday break, however.
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.
We are thrilled with the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines. However, it will take several weeks or months until those vaccines are out to many of us on our campus and in the community. The impacts of the coronavirus are still deathly, so please continue to be safe in your interactions with others.
Best wishes in this final week before our Christmas holidays!
