Guiding principles

  • Efficiently identify a campus positive or direct contact of a positive in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 across the Louisiana Tech campus community.
  • Follow direction and guidance from LDH and/or local health officials on contact tracing and best practices.
  • Maintain confidentiality of impacted employee/student throughout the process.

If you have been in direct contact with someone who has COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19, do not come to campus.  If you reside on campus, self-isolate in your residence.
