COVID-19 Protocols for Remaining Residents

COVID-19 Protocols for Remaining Residents

Dear Lions,

We hope this email finds you well as we continue to navigate the challenges associated with COVID-19. As residents remaining in on-campus housing, we are writing to remind you of the mandatory protocols enacted to support your health amidst COVID-19. The following protocols are currently in effect:

  • Dining Operations and Meal Pick-Up. Dining Services continues to operate in support of our students. For all students with a meal plan, pre-packaged meals may be picked up each day between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. from the Great Room of the Student Success Center.

  • Mandatory Face Masks in Public. The City of Guthrie and the Town of Langston City recently passed orders requiring the mandatory use of cloth face masks in public. If you plan to visit Guthrie to shop or attend appointments, please keep in mind that a face mask will be required. Follow these simple tutorials from the CDC to make your own masks at home.

  • 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.

  • Restricted Access to the Langston Campus. Effective Wednesday, April 8, 2020, the North Entrance of the Langston Campus closed to all traffic. A centralize campus check-point for entry is available at the South Entrance near the Langston University Police Department. Outside visitors to the campus are strongly discouraged as a safety precaution for you and others within the community.

  • Campus Access Pass. Please visit the LUPD dispatch window and give your name to receive your Campus Access Pass, which is required for entry into the Langston Campus. LUPD staff will check your name against the list of those approved to remain on campus and provide you with the pass. You will need to show the pass to the LUPD officers at the South Gate when entering the campus in a vehicle. If you do not have a vehicle, you are not required to obtain a pass.

We appreciate your continued cooperation and support of all members of the community by adhering to these important protocols. We recommend that you continue to check the COVID-19 Resource Page for regular updates and alerts.

Should you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at luelt@langston.edu.

Sincerely,

Langston University Emergency Leadership Team
