Return to Campus

If you have been in direct contact (within six feet for a time period of 15 minutes or more) with someone who has COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19.

Return to campus plan

The State of Louisiana and Louisiana Tech University are currently in Phase 3.

In charting a path forward amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Louisiana Tech is committed to providing students, faculty and staff with an environment where scholarship, research, leadership and creative expression can continue to thrive.

We will continue to focus on two objectives for our University:

  • Continuing to keep our campus community healthy and safe
  • Ensuring our students meet their academic goals

In order for us to achieve these goals, every member of the Tech Family will need to take personal responsibility for their behavior.

Expected behaviors

  • Wearing masks
  • Maintaining physical distance
  • Washing hands regularly
  • Using proper sneeze and cough practices
  • Helping maintain clean academic and office areas
  • Monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19

Course delivery will take a variety of modes, including face to face, online, and hybrid. Each of these modes depends on occupancy requirements in classrooms as well as the needs of each class and academic program. 

Face masks or coverings will be worn indoors at all times and outdoors when six feet of distance cannot be maintained. They must be worn in classrooms and building hallways, as well as shared office space.

Academic leaders in each college are defining safe ingress and egress methods for each classroom as well as determining safe occupancy levels for each classroom, lab, and studio. In addition, they will determine appropriate cleaning protocols for each room.

Occupancy in residence halls will maintain appropriate levels for physical distancing. In addition, a special section of housing will be used for students who need to be quarantined or isolated.
