Dear Tulane Community:
As we prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving break, we wanted to provide you with some updates on testing, and how to make the most of the break.
The following testing schedule is planned for the Thanksgiving break:
- Recommended – Thanksgiving Travel Testing QR Codes will be sent to all faculty and staff beginning 11/19/2021.
- Required – Thanksgiving Return Travel Testing QR Codes will be sent to all faculty and staff beginning 11/26/2021.
We recognize the stressful semester we have all experienced due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the impact that Hurricane Ida had on our community. We want to encourage you to use the Thanksgiving break as a time to rest, recharge, and prepare for the end of the semester. Your health and well-being are our top priority. The following strategies are suggestion to help you maximize your break.
Relax, have fun, and make memories. Take time to connect with family and friends to celebrate the season. Bake cookies, sleep in and lounge in your pajamas all day or find your personal preference to truly unwind.
Focus on your personal well-being. Allocating time to work on your own well-being is critically important. The tools below will help you do this:
You at College: a comprehensive well-being portal for students, faculty, and staff that is adaptable to any device and contains resources for your mental, physical and social well-being, including those provided by the university. Visit you.tulane.edu or access its link on the Gibson online portal.
Self-care is critical for all individuals, especially during a time of crisis. To address this need, the Tulane University School of Social Work created a website with self-care information, guided meditation videos, and mental health support hotlines.
