Update for ULM Students, Employees & Community

August 3, 2021- As our COVID Response Team continues to plan for Fall 2021, we are faced with the reality of a fourth COVID surge and the most contagious strand that we’ve seen so far. While we cannot eliminate the risk of contracting COVID-19 on campus, we can help reduce the likelihood of its spread through vaccinations and safe health practices. Governor Edwards announced a renewal of the statewide mask mandate, which will be in place until at least September 1 (see attached). This reinforces ULM’s decision to require face masks in all campus buildings this fall for vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. Face masks that properly cover the wearer’s mouth and nose shall be worn indoors at all times. The exception is an employee working alone in their personal office. An abundant supply of face masks will be available in all buildings this fall semester.

We need your help and patience as we navigate these somewhat familiar waters again. Help us keep the campus open this fall by masking up and talking to your doctor about the COVID-19 vaccine.
