Employee Testing Updates for Spring Semester

January 15, 2021

Dear Tulane Employees,

In order to protect and support the campus community and city residents, Tulane has enacted extensive programs for testing and tracing, as well as guidelines and interventions to promote safety and supports for mental health and wellness.

Testing Frequency

All Tulane employees are required to participate in ongoing surveillance testing throughout the spring semester regardless of vaccine status or the presence of antibodies from a previous COVID-19 infection. Please review current frequency requirements online on the COVID-19 resources website.

All employees participating in the surveillance testing program will receive QR codes via e-mail from no-reply@lablynx.com to present at the testing site. QR codes are to be used in the order of the dates in which you receive the email.  Upon receipt of your QR code, utilize the Tulane Campus Health Patient Portal to set appointments.

Campus Health will work with employees who test positive for COVID-19 regarding their participation in the surveillance testing program.

All employees who test positive outside of the Tulane Testing Program must submit documentation through the COVID-19 Reporting Form.

All employees are required to participate in contact tracing to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Vaccine Information

We will share regular updates with our community as more information about vaccine administration becomes available. If you are starting a vaccine series with a healthcare provider, please make sure you will be able to complete the series with that provider. More information and FAQs are posted on the COVID-19 Resources website.

Mental Health & Wellness

We recognize that mental health and wellness are a struggle for all during this challenging time. We are continuing to bolster support and services to address this important issue.

Wellness App: In February, Campus Health will launch an app called You at College, a comprehensive well-being portal for students, faculty and staff. This portal is adaptable to any device and contains personalized resources, including those provided by the university. More information will be coming soon!
