The health and safety guidelines and communications Loyola has developed in the Plans to Reopen Campus are for your protection, to ensure the safety of others in the community, and to ensure you—our students—get to enjoy as much of the face to face learning and campus experience as possible! We intend to open campus for the Spring 2021 semester, and while the measures we’ve put in place provides structures and guidelines, it will ultimately be made possible with our community support and 100% participation in safety measures.
Here is what we need from you, our community of #LoyolaHealthyHounds:
- Your commitment, support, and help enforcing safety measures on campus!
- Show your commitment by signing the pledge
- Spread the word about your commitment to and the importance of #LoyolaHealthyHounds
- View and share the materials and resources below to educate yourself and others on taking proper health and safety precautions
- Please note the critical importance of wearing a face covering and ensuring others do, too: Health experts state that the most critical component of preventing an outbreak on campus is that all individuals must wear face coverings in public and while interacting with others.
Student Health Services
Student Health Services has outlined their Reopening During COVID-19 Efforts and a COVID-19 FAQ page for some information to best guide your concerns for the Spring semester. For any COVID-19 related questions or concerns, students should call Student Health Services directly at 410-617-5055.
Mental Health Resources
As a community, we will lean on scientific knowledge and research, as well as our commitment to cura personalis, in setting the stage for a successful semester on our campuses. Although physical health is critically important to stop the spread of COVID-19, it’s important to support the mental health of our community—particularly our students—at a time of stress, challenge, and uncertainty.
Please visit the Counseling Center website to explore emotional wellness, mindfulness, and relaxation resources; learn about remote counseling services; and to find resources for supporting students during this time.
