Loyola's ongoing response to COVID-19

Loyola University Maryland has reopened its campuses to offer a residential experience for undergraduate students along with in-person classes for the Spring 2021 academic semester. Together, our Loyola community is taking steps to promote and advance the health and safety of our Loyola community as we continue to deliver a high-quality Jesuit liberal arts and professional education and experience for our students.

Please check back as this page will continue to be updated with more information. Questions may be sent to coronavirus@loyola.edu.

New This Week

  • For the status of COVID on campus, check out Loyola's COVID-19 Dashboard.
  • CARP 2.0: Loyola's Rapid Response Team and Policy Group have created a Campus Assessment and Restriction Period that the University may implement as needed. Leran more on the CARP 2.0 page.
  • COVID-19 Vaccinations: The University’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Team and Policy Group continue to monitor the Maryland Covid-19 vaccine rollout plan. We have been seeking information on how employees can receive the vaccine in the first phases of Maryland’s vaccine roll-out. The Maryland Independent Colleges and Universities Association has confirmed that the Maryland roll-out plan has included higher education employees—both faculty and support staff—in Phase 1B. Loyola encourages you to be vaccinated if you are able. If you would like to be vaccinated, we recommend you pursue every avenue available to you. With the current limited vaccine supply, none of these options is a guarantee:
    • Check with your physician to see whether you can access the vaccine through them.
    • Look for your health department or jurisdiction’s Covid vaccination website to see whether you can register there to receive the vaccine. You can learn more about vaccination sites through the State of Maryland’s COVID Vaccination website.
    • Loyola's health care partner, Sinai, is extending is vaccine registration process to our faculty, staff, and administrators. When registering, all Loyola employees must use the same employer name so they can track all Loyola employees. Please use “Loyola MD” as your employer name. Please register only once through this system. If and when you are approved, you will receive an email with a link to register for a time to receive your vaccine. This does not guarantee that you will receive the vaccine as quickly as you would like, and we encourage you to try other avenues, as well. Register for Sinai's vaccination process
