Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Monday morning. Welcome back to campus for the 2021 year.
After our holiday break, one of the most important things all of us can do – until we have the chance to receive the vaccine – is to test regularly for COVID-19. Start today!
Free PCR testing at the Argent Alumni Pavilion will continue through March 2021. 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. Schedule your free test through TechCare’s online scheduling system at https://gctechcare.simplybook.me/v2/#book.
Workday and MFA reminder
Today, our campus will begin using Workday. We have been eagerly awaiting the advantages that will come with modernization of both our human resources and financial functions. Please review yesterday’s email from Lisa Cole related to the implementation for more information and training availability.
Remember that hourly employees, including classified and student workers, will need to use the system to clock in and out. This is a change, and I know we’ve all prepared by creating multi-factor authentication accounts and engaging in training. We’ll all continue to learn how to use the system more efficiently, and it’s important for us to remember patience with our colleagues as we all become proficient.
The Workday team has put in an incredible amount of work preparing for this day, and I appreciate their service to the University. An implementation of this magnitude is not simple, and their work shows Louisiana Tech’s spirit of innovation and collaboration at its finest.
Welcome back to campus for 2021, Bulldogs. Remember to wear your masks, maintain physical distance, and wash your hands to protect our community.
