COVID-19: Our Response

Loras College is committed to the safety and well-being of all students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. Campus administration regularly reviews the recommendations of local, state, and national health officials and monitors the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 and adapts Loras policy to help ensure a safe and informed community.


Current Campus-Wide Status and Recommendations

  • All Loras community members are strongly encouraged to complete the COVID-19 vaccination series and receive boosters, as eligible.
  • Masks are optional in most settings on campus, indoors or outdoors.
  • Students participating in off-campus experiences (e.g. internships, practica, community service) are expected to follow the guidelines/requirements in place at the off-campus site.
  • Campus leadership will regularly evaluate COVID related policies and may update/adapt as warranted by community spread and/or CDC guidance.

General Campus Masking Guidelines

At this time, masks are not required in most spaces on campus, with the following exceptions:

  • In accordance with CDC guidelines, individuals in quarantine or recently released from quarantine or isolation must wear a mask in all public spaces for 10 days from the date of exposure or infection.
  • Individuals must wear a mask in areas with posted signage (e.g. “Masks Required”). This includes faculty/staff offices at the discretion of the faculty or staff member.
  • Masks may be required in classrooms during class at the discretion of the course instructor. Please check with the course instructor for the policy specific to each class.
  • Community members should carry a mask at all times so they can quickly adapt to requirements in a specific area or office.
