What protocols does Loyola follow in relation to COVID-19?

Loyola University partners with Ochsner Health System for our Student Health Services. Our student health team currently follows protocols established by Ochsner. Students will be informed of the safety protocols prior to their arrival for appointments. SHS staff will conduct temperature checks and questioning upon arrival at the clinic, and appointments will be staggered to limit density in the clinic and waiting room.

Should I contact SHS if I experience COVID-19 symptoms?

Yes. Students experiencing COVID symptoms should call Student Health Services (SHS) at 504.865.3326 for a telephone screening, available Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. SHS will determine whether COVID testing is indicated. While waiting for the results, students should self-isolate in place. After hours or on weekends, students who are symptomatic should contact the Ochsner Help Line at 1.800.232.5257, utilize Oscher’s COVID testing site.

What if I am diagnosed with COVID-19?
