Campus Update – Back to Campus
January 4th, 2022
Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Tuesday morning. I’m thrilled to have you all back! Classes resume tomorrow after our winter holiday break. Some things have changed since we left for the holidays, and we all know about the rapid spread of the omicron variant of COVID-19. Let’s all commit to work together over the next few weeks to minimize the impacts of this virus on our people and our community while continuing to make academic progress and fulfill your career goals..
If you have not had a chance to review Sunday’s communication related to our return, please take some time to familiarize yourself with updated instructions for this quarter.
As our state is currently seeing a spike in cases of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has adjusted its recommended protocols for those exposed to or testing positive for the virus. The University of Louisiana System has also adjusted its guidelines for member schools – https://s25260.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/GUIDING-PRINCIPLES-1.3.22.pdf. We are all expected to comply with those guidelines.
Masks are still required indoors throughout campus. In particular, wearing our masks properly is imperative. Leaving your nose or mouth uncovered renders this protection for you and your peers ineffective.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 – or have been a direct contact for someone who has tested positive – please report your case to the appropriate folks on campus.
Students should email Stacy Gilbert at firstname.lastname@example.org to report COVID illness or exposure. Provide your name, campus ID, cell phone, whether you live on or off campus, and best method to contact you. Reporting promptly is important so that our Student Resource Team can work with staff and faculty to ensure you receive the appropriate accommodations. Accommodations and/or excused absences may not be granted if proper University reporting protocol is not followed.
Faculty and staff must notify both their direct supervisor and Human Resources about COVID illness or exposure. The contact in Human Resources is Sheila Trammel at 318.257.2235 or email@example.com. Supervisors must maintain strict confidentiality.
Isolation and quarantine protocols
We are adopting the updated CDC protocols for isolation of individuals who’ve tested positive for the virus. If you test positive for COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status:
- Report your case to the appropriate University officials.
- You must isolate for FIVE days
- If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving (no fever for 24 hours), you may leave isolation after five days.
- After leaving isolation, you must wear a mask around others for an additional five days.
If you have a fever, you must continue to isolate until your fever resolves without the aid of fever-reducing medication.
I am confident that we will work through this and be in a much better place with the pandemic soon. Let’s be respectful of others while we all focus on health and safety of our campus community.
