Outdoor campus spaces
As mentioned in the Health and Safety Guidance section, maintaining space between you and others is a best practice and is required on the Louisiana Tech University campus to avoid exposure to the COVID-19 virus and to slow its spread. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is important to stay away from others whenever possible, even if you have no symptoms. Physical distancing is especially important for people who are at higher risk. Everyone on campus should follow these physical distancing practices:
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) away from other people.
- Do not gather in groups.
- Stay out of crowded places and avoid gathering.
In the interest of creating a culture where health and safety are promoted and realized, face coverings must be worn by all individuals on campus in public settings (e.g., common workspaces, hallways, stairwells, elevators, meeting rooms, classrooms, break-rooms, campus outdoor spaces, in restrooms, etc.). Appropriate use of face coverings is important in minimizing risk to the wearer and those around them. A face covering is not a substitute for physical distancing.
