COVID-19 continues to present Tulane University and the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine with challenges and opportunities.
At this time, we are following the university guidance for COVID-19 protocols.
Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor public and common spaces on campus – including classrooms, laboratories, shuttles and other meeting spaces.
Masks are not required when outdoors on campus. However, unvaccinated persons should still wear masks outdoors when attending an outdoor gathering. Mask requirements for outdoor gatherings of a certain size and density may be necessary for vaccinated persons, too. Directives for such events will be announced prior to the event and/or through signage at the event location.
Current masking policies will remain in place until September 1, 2021. Students must be masked when attending class. Current guidance does not require social distancing in classrooms or other settings. More details on how classroom instruction will continue during the mask mandate has been sent in a separate email to faculty. Certain department and areas of the university may have stricter safety protocols based on the nature of the work performed.
If you have any questions, please share to [email protected] - questions are shared with the appropriate leadership team members.
