COVID-19 Message to University Communities

July 2, 2020

Dear Students:
The City of New Orleans has asked us to urge everyone to avoid large crowds, especially indoor gatherings at bars or parties that have the potential to become ‘super-spreader’ events during the current COVID-19 pandemic. This is especially important as we enter a long holiday weekend. Also, remember that it is mandatory in the City of New Orleans to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
College-age students are among those who are increasingly testing positive for COVID-19, which presents risks to themselves and especially to older and more medically vulnerable residents, who could face severe illness or death. Even if you're asymptomatic, you could spread the COVID-19 to others. To prevent our city from going backward toward a complete shutdown, and to save your lives and others, we encourage everyone to follow the simple precautions of avoiding large crowds, wearing a mask, socially distancing and practicing good hand washing hygiene.

Erica Woodley
