Student Vaccination Recommended
All UL Lafayette students (except dual enrollment students) are encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Employee Vaccination RecommendedAll University students and employees who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to consider vaccination. It is the most effective defense against infection and severe illness related to the virus. Vaccinations, combined with booster shots, have also been shown to be highly effective against COVID-19 strains, such as the Omicron variant.

Face Covering Policy Still in Effect
The University's Face Covering Policy was recently amended to recommend, but not require, that everyone wear face coverings in all indoor settings and outdoors while on University property.
A department or unit may require all individuals wear face coverings over their mouths and noses if it is determined to be necessary during a specific face-to-face course, in a specific classroom, laboratory, and/or private office/workspace, or other areas.
Read the final Face Covering Policy on the University Policies website.
