According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Louisiana Department of Health, the transmission rate of COVID-19 remains high in the Acadiana region and throughout the state. In an effort to protect the health and safety of students and employees, the University will continue to deliver a number of in-person classes remotely through Friday, Feb. 4. Students should check Moodle and confirm any course delivery changes with their faculty members.

In-person student organization events, including meetings, socials, and service projects, will be allowed on and off campus provided masks are worn and proper social distancing can be maintained.

Supervisors of University offices and departments where social distancing is not easily maintained may consider utilizing alternate work arrangements as needed through Friday, Feb. 4. The Office of Human Resources must approve alternate work arrangements.

COVID-19 vaccines are once again being administered at the on-campus testing and vaccination site in the former University Bookstore building at 210 E. St. Mary Blvd. from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Reminder: Stay home if you do not feel well


Students who do not feel well for any reason should stay home and complete the Anticipated or Unplanned Absence form.

If you experience any symptoms related to COVID-19, please do the following:

  • isolate at home/stay in your residence,
  • contact your medical provider or call the Student Health Services at (337) 482-1328; and
  • inform your roommates and avoid contact with them.

If you are told to quarantine or isolate because you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are presumed positive because of symptoms and testing, complete the isolation and quarantine form only. (You do not need to complete the Anticipated or Unplanned Absence form.)

As a reminder, staff and faculty members must complete the Daily Self-Check Questionnaire each day prior to arriving to work.
