Masks still required On Campus

Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of COVID-19 on the LSUHSC Campuses were updated today, March 17, 2021.

This guideline includes the following: Masks: LSUHSC requires that masks be worn properly (covering the nose and mouth) in all public settings on campus (unless one is eating).  The CDC and LSUHSC recommend that masks be worn at all times except while you are in your own home. For a guide of acceptable masks, please refer to this CDC document: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html

We continue to have issues with mask noncompliance in the Libraries and would appreciate patron cooperation.
