Advanced Health Screening Protocols

Advanced Health Screening Protocols

Dear Langston Community,

All students, faculty, and staff that applied to remain on campus, and are authorized by Langston University Emergency Leadership Team (ELT) to remain, expressly agreed to adhere to advanced protocols to ensure the health and safety of all persons on the Langston University campus. As of Tuesday, April 7, 2020, these protocols now include the following:

  • Daily Submission of a Simple Health Check-In Form. This basic form that can be completed in less than 1 minute will help the Langston University Health Clinic staff ensure the healthiest possible campus and catch any early warning signs of illness. This form should be complete every day by 4:00 p.m. The form may be found here.
  • Weekly Tele-Health Appointment with Langston University Health Clinic Staff. Each week, all remaining residents of Langston University will set a virtual appointment with clinic staff for a five-to-ten minute health virtual screening.
  • Immediate Notice of Changes to Your Health. In the event a remaining campus resident experiences changes in their health, especially symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, they are required to immediately notify a member of the Langston University Health Clinic Staff by calling (405) 466-3335 or emailing luhealthclinic@langston.edu. A voicemail may be left for the Health Clinic Staff and the call will be returned.
  • Potential Self-Quarantine. Any resident that experiences symptoms similar to or consistent with COVID-19 will be required to self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days. The Emergency Leadership Team (ELT) of Langston University could also require that this self-quarantine be implemented at a separate campus housing location thus requiring transfer or the movement of the resident.
  • Potential Transfer of Housing Location. During this time of a public health crisis, any resident on the Langston University campus may be asked move or transfer from their current campus housing location to ensure their own safety, or the safety of those around them.

Guests in Campus Housing

To further mitigate the risk of community spread to the University community, the Langston Campus officially closed to the public on Monday, March 30, 2020. No outside guests are authorized to visit any campus housing space while these mitigation protocols are in place.
