Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Friday morning.
Tuesday, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced that the State of Louisiana would move to Phase 3 of its reopening plan. There have been about six weeks of improvements of the number of cases of COVID-19 and reductions in the number of COVID-related hospitalizations.
We have also seen the number of student and employee cases decline since the holiday break. I’m so thankful for the work our Student Resource Team has done to help our students follow our University’s health and safety guidelines. And thanks to all students who have continued to follow those guidelines!
Changes in the allowed capacity have been made for many businesses, and these changes will impact how we plan events for student organizations and in campus facilities this Spring Quarter. The Division of Student Advancement is reviewing the changes and will issue its revision of the student organization guidelines soon.
As we move toward a more open campus this Spring, everyone will need to continue to wear masks and maintain appropriate distancing. Continue to wash your hands and stay home when you don’t feel well.
Remember to get your regular COVID-19 tests each week as we move closer to getting the vaccine for more members of our campus community. We know that a significant number of you have already been vaccinated.
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.
Free antigen testing continues from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each weekday at TechCare. Schedule your free test at https://gctechcare.simplybook.me/v2/#book.
Tomorrow, we will hold two commencement ceremonies for our newest graduates:
- 9 a.m. – College of Business and College of Liberal Arts
- Noon – College of Applied and Natural Sciences, College of Education, and the College of Engineering and Science
We will be restricting the number of guests for each graduate, so I encourage you to watch the ceremonies on Facebook Live. Be sure to share a shoutout for your students, friends, or colleagues on social media!
