Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Sunday morning.
Hopefully, everyone enjoyed the warmer weather and sunshine yesterday. We’re all eagerly anticipating a return to a more normal weather pattern for our area in this next week. Continue to be safe on the roads this morning; our area still has some patchy ice in areas that do not see as much sun, but temperatures should be on a steady rise this week.
Louisiana’s health care providers and pharmacies continue to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine to those in the Phases 1a and 1b, Tier 1. In addition, the state expanded Phase 1b, Tier 1, to include additional populations. More information is available on the Louisiana Department of Health website. If you are a member of one of the newly added populations, you will soon receive communication asking you to complete a vaccine survey so that LDH can ensure vaccinations are delivered to the appropriate areas. Please complete the survey, and remember the information you share is confidential.
In addition, we learned yesterday that LDH has added higher education faculty and staff to Phase 1b, Tier 2. We do not know when the state will enter this phase of the vaccination process, but we are eagerly anticipating the opportunity and will share information as soon as we have it. To see the amended Phase 1b, Tier 2 populations, please review the attached graphic.
As we return from this extended break from campus, remember to wear your mask, practice appropriate physical distancing, and wash your hands regularly. We can’t afford to slack up on these measures, even as the vaccine rolls out. There are vulnerable populations that we all need to protect.
As you return to campus from the break, it’s an important time to schedule your regular COVID-19 test. Free PCR testing at the Argent Alumni Pavilion will continue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday. The link to register for testing is http://health.questdiagnostics.com/STLOU.
Let’s finish the quarter healthy and strong, Bulldogs! I know many of you are working to get ready for final exams and projects. Good luck, and be sure to reach out for assistance if you need to.
