ECELP Families,
Although the Governor has lifted the mask mandate statewide, it is still in effect in schools. LSU has been diligent in adhering to all requirements of the Centers for Disease Control and other health organizations to keep our numbers on campus low. As you can see from our wastewater results, the ECELP has been very fortunate, which is largely due to masks and our stringent cleaning protocols. We look forward to the day when these safety measures are no longer necessary and appreciate your patience as we continue to persevere with our modified protocols.
