Dear Tulane Community,
In the past few days, our Damage Assessment & Recovery Team (DART) and their contractors have been on our campuses beginning recovery work. Damage assessments and repairs are currently underway with the goal of getting our campus ready for the safe return of all faculty, staff and students as quickly as possible. This process includes numerous vehicles and contractors as well as the use of heavy machinery. In order to safely facilitate this work, students, faculty, and staff are not allowed to enter campus buildings until further notice, including offices and residence hall rooms, and should not access our campuses.
At this time, all buildings on all campuses remain locked down to everyone but essential personnel and contractors who are performing the mission critical work related to damage assessments and recovery, with the exceptions listed below:
We will be scheduling time for faculty and staff to safely access buildings so items can be retrieved to aid in online teaching and remote work. A message with this schedule will be sent separately.
Thank you for your understanding, compliance, and support during this time,
Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response
