Tulane University is planning for the return of all employees working remotely to on-site work no later than Tuesday, July 6.
All students will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination for Fall Semester 2021. Additional information regarding the vaccine requirement for international students will be shared soon. Please click here for the locations of vaccination sites at Tulane and throughout the area.
Declining A Vaccination
Students may decline the vaccination for reasons consistent with Louisiana state vaccine laws by submitting a Vaccine Declination Form. Students must submit proof of vaccination or a Declination Form by July 15.
Report Your Vaccination!
If you have completed the full vaccine sequence from an entity outside of Tulane, please update your vaccination records through the Campus Health Patient Portal. If you have been vaccinated at a Tulane Vaccine Clinic, you do not need to update your records through the Patient Portal.
City of New Orleans: Modified Phase Three
Because of a low positivity rate and the availability of coronavirus vaccines, the City of New Orleans has issued new COVID-19 guidelines, effective May 28, 2021. Tulane University will adhere to all the restrictions of this phase, which can be found here.
Mask Requirement on Tulane University Property
Due to COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations significantly increasing over the past several weeks, the City of New Orleans announced an indoor mask advisory, asking everyone – regardless of vaccination status – to wear a mask indoors when in the presence of people who are not members of their immediate family. Effective immediately, we are implementing the city's advisory by strongly encouraging all individuals to wear masks while indoors on any Tulane University property or campus – uptown, downtown or on the Northshore.
Anyone not yet fully vaccinated is required to mask and distance in public settings and particularly indoors for their safety and the safety of others. The decision to stop wearing a mask is a personal choice for anyone who has been vaccinated. Not all people who have been vaccinated will feel comfortable without a mask in public areas.
