LSUS COVID-19 Resource Page

The LSUS administration is working closely with the LSU system, along with local, state, and federal health officials to monitor the developments related to the Novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19. 

LSUS will continue to closely follow all developments related to the Novel Coronavirus and will keep the campus community apprised of any major changes in the situation. 

Below you'll find how to report your case should you become infected, our latest campus directives on vaccination and mask-wearing, as well as the current protocol should you be exposed.

If you have been in direct contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset) with someone who has COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, have had a COVID-19 test, or have tested positive for COVID-19.




Covid Exposure (within 6 feet or less for a total of 15 minutes in a 24 hour period): 

If fully vaccinated and have not had Covid for at least 90 days:           

  1. Wear a mask for 10 days from date of last exposure.
  2. Watch for Covid 19 symptoms.
  3. If symptoms develop, immediately test.

If not fully vaccinated and have not had Covid in last 90 days:           

  1. Quarantine for at least 5 days (sick leave may be used for this). If you have had Covid in the last 90 days, quarantine is not necessary.
  2. Wear a mask for 10 days.
  3. Watch for Covid 19 symptoms.
  4. If symptoms develop, immediately test. 

Covid Positive 

  1. Report your case using the link on the main LSUS web page under Covid Updates or report it to HR. (See purple box above.)
  2. Isolate at home for 5 days after date of the positive test.
  3. After 5 days if you are feeling good, complete and submit the Return to Campus Certification Form found on the main LSUS web page under Covid Updates. (See dropdown above.)
  4. Wear a mask for 5 days following your return.


Wearing a mask at LSUS is currently optional but is strongly encouraged. Masks, when worn properly and combined with other mitigation measures (such as social distancing), are effective in helping prevent infection.
