Faculty, staff, and students should report symptoms of COVID-19, exposure, or a positive test result on Loyola’s Public Health Portal
, which is available on the “Quick Links” page through your Single Sign On (SSO) for easy access. Check this page if you need help logging into the portal
If You’re Unvaccinated
As an extra level of protection, we are requiring all faculty, staff, and students who are unvaccinated to submit proof of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours prior to or upon return to campus on the public health portal. Student Health will provide rapid COVID-19 tests to be self-administered on site for unvaccinated students returning this week. Check your email for detailed instructions.
If You’re Feeling Sick
If you feel sick, schedule a COVID test and follow the recommendations of your healthcare provider. Students, faculty, and staff who feel any symptoms of COVID can schedule a testing appointment at SHS by calling 504.865.3326, M – F, 8:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. You should also report your symptoms on the public health portal.
If You’re Exposed to COVID
If you’ve been in close contact with someone with COVID or receive a contact trace notification from someone outside of Loyola, please report it immediately on the portal or email email@example.com
. Public Health will conduct contact tracing for the Loyola community and let you know your next steps.
If you begin to experience any symptoms of COVID, or if you are concerned about a potential exposure at any point prior to your planned return, please do not return to campus. Get tested at your current location. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify Public Health.
Check the “Get Tested for COVID-19” section on our Symptoms, Testing, and Contact Tracing
page for a list of other testing locations. If you need assistance in finding a testing site, the public health team is happy to help. You can schedule a virtual visit
with them for help with testing or any other questions you may have.
