Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Testing Results

Confirmed results are based on information provided to the university by members of the Louisiana Tech University community or by the TechCare Student Health Center or other public agency. The count excludes individuals not affiliated with Tech. Because of the increase in the number of locations administering COVID-19 tests, many tests that come back negative are not reported to the University. Therefore, an accurate count of total tests of campus community members is not available.

When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, Louisiana Tech works with other agencies and the individual to determine who they may have had close contact with and will provide guidance to those individuals. Please know that the CDC does not define being in the same classroom or office space with someone who tests positive as “close contact.”

Community transmission of the COVID-19 virus continues to increase locally, in our region and in the United States. Physical distancing is vital to slowing this outbreak – don’t gather in groups and maintain 6 feet of distance from other people when you have to be in public.
