In an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of all members of the LSUE community, LSU Eunice has enacted procedures that coincide with recommendation measures by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Our Return to Work committee has put together a plan to help slow the spread and protect the campus community from this virus.
Some of the main elements of our fight against COVID-19 include: Daily Symptom Checking, Face Covering Protocols, a robust Hand Washing and Building Sanitation plan, Social Distancing and Contact Tracing.
Daily Symptom Checking: The LSUE community is required to self-monitor their symptoms daily. Faculty, staff, and students are required to respond to a daily symptom check request that will be sent via text message, e-mail or can be accessed through a web-based application.
The daily symptom checker requires respondents to take a one- to two-minute assessment of their symptoms. Once respondents have provided information about their symptoms, they will be provided with feedback if they are allowed on campus or should seek medical advice.
Face Covering Protocols: All students, faculty, staff and guest on the campus of LSU Eunice are required to have a face covering. These are required to be worn in classrooms, lab settings, all common areas of buildings and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. There are several locations on campus where you can pick-up a mask provided by the Student Government Association should you not have a face covering.
Hand Washing And Sanitation: LSU Eunice has added several hand sanitizer stations using the recommended >60% alcohol sanitizer. Our maintenance staff have also ramped up their daily cleaning duties to include disinfecting rooms on a regular basis.
Social Distancing: It is recommended for all students, faculty, staff and guests to practice social distancing in all buildings and outdoor areas of campus. Classrooms have been realigned to adhere to size and space allowances per State and Federal guidelines.
Contact Tracing: Contact tracing plays an important role in slowing the spread of COVID-19 . Consequently, once someone has tested positive for COVID-19, they will be required to provide information about the people who they have been in close contact with . At LSUE, contact tracing is done through an automated system where respondents can input this information through a web-based application . If additional information is needed or someone does not provide this information, they will be contacted .
COVID-19 Testing is available through the WellSmart Health Clinic on campus. You must provide insurance or other form of payment to receive testing should you feel you are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19. Students and employees are able to use this service, their personal health care provider or local agencies providing testing.
LSUE administration is working closely with local, state, and federal health officials to monitor the developments related to the Novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19. At this time, there have been no cases of the disease on campus.
LSUE will continue to closely follow all developments related to the Novel Coronavirus and will keep the campus community apprised of any major changes in the situation.
