Lafayette students, faculty, and staff, Illustration of Lafayette Leopard mascot's head wearing a medical mask

As a community, we came together during the fall semester and successfully navigated the continually evolving COVID-19 environment. The news of new variants is tempered by news of new and promising treatments for those at higher risk and a continued demonstration that vaccinations continue to help offset the most serious consequences of a COVID-19 infection. As we return for the spring semester, it is helpful to acknowledge that we will continue to see COVID-19 infections.  

As guidance from the scientific and medical communities continues to evolve we will necessarily need to revisit and amend our protocols. Our commitment to the health and safety of our community while continuing to fulfill our academic mission continues to underpin all of our decisions. We remain committed to staying stronger together and encourage all members of our community to take the appropriate steps to protect each other. 

Please familiarize yourself with the updated campus protocols and testing strategy, and utilize the FAQ as a resource. 

Be well and stay safe,

COVID-19 Action Group
