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.
