COVID-19 testing protocols changing

With COVID-19 risk levels declining in the communities OLLU serves, low positivity rates on our campuses and changing protocols from Curative, the university’s testing provider, OLLU is making changes to COVID-19 testing requirements. Curative has announced it is no longer testing asymptomatic individuals. Therefore:

Students will no longer be required to test on a regular basis; testing is required if students have symptoms or close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual.
The Curative testing site in the UWAC is now closed; anyone with symptoms or close contact can test at the Curative site in Lot K or with other local providers.
Observed, quick tests are available in the Health Education Resource Office for urgent situations. Call the office at 210-431-3919.
Employees who have not submitted proof of vaccination will continue testing on a regular basis and will receive updated instructions on the new OSHA emergency temporary standard in the coming weeks.
Students, faculty, staff and visitors to OLLU campuses are still required to wear masks when indoors or unable to isolate.
Students, faculty and staff are still required to report COVID-19 illness or close contact by submitting a Self-Report Form
Students and employees who have not yet done so are still encouraged to submit proof of vaccination here.  

The university will continue to monitor the situation and will update protocols as conditions change.

Save the Date: Dec. 3 vaccine clinic
OLLU will hold a vaccine clinic on the San Antonio campus on Dec. 3 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Pfizer vaccines, boosters and pediatric vaccines will be available. The flu shot also will be available, but recipients must provide their health insurance card.
