The Labouré College of Healthcare campus is mask friendly, meaning face masks are optional in the classroom and around campus. Masks continue to be required in the campus computer testing labs and science labs in accordance with the healthcare industry standard.
As of May 11, 2023, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has decided to move forward with ending the COVID-19 public health emergency.
During the public health emergency, Labouré College of Healthcare advised students, faculty and staff to consult with the Wellness Coordinator in the Wellness Center if they became sick and tested positive for COVID-19.
Now that the public health emergency has ended, the College no longer requires the guidance of the Wellness Center and the Wellness Coordinator.
If you become sick and test positive for COVID-19, you should stay home and report it to your instructors and/or supervisor to determine how long you will be out.
According to the CDC, “Students should engage in proper health maintenance activities so as to function safely and effectively in the class, lab, clinical, or professional practice experience. The CDC advises students to stay home if they are sick.” These recommendations pertain to all faculty and staff personnel as well.
All students, faculty, and staff should continue to stay up to date with required vaccines, respect each other, and prevent those around you from becoming ill.
