The College is phasing in the return of faculty, staff, students, and visitors to campus in a coordinated process that will include appropriate physical distancing, protective equipment, symptom checking, and COVID-19 testing.
During the Fall 2020 semester, some students, faculty and staff will be participating in on-campus activities. These individuals will be screened for symptoms prior to arrival on campus, and if symptoms are reported, will be required to get tested for COVID-19.
The charts below will be updated each Wednesday with the testing information from the prior 7 days, and with the running Fall semester total beginning September 9th.
Labouré College is a commuter campus with no residence halls. The need for testing is assessed daily through a symptom check for those who plan to come to campus.
*Positive testing numbers are reported for on-campus and off-campus. Off-campus is defined as positive test results from students, faculty, or staff who were screened for entry into a clinical affiliate facility, or students, faculty, or staff who are solely working remotely or learning remotely. Off-campus positive results are therefore results from individuals who did not come to campus.
All persons coming to campus must receive clearance to enter campus via the daily symptom check.
This symptom check is completed by all persons each day before coming to campus. If symptoms are reported, the person does not receive clearance to come to campus, and is required to get tested for COVID-19. If the test is positive, the person is denied access to campus until appropriate quarantine/isolation time has elapsed.
Labouré College has an agreement with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard , an FDA CLIA-certified laboratory, to test symptomatic individuals.
