Centenary College’s top priority is the safety of students, employees, and visitors. The guidelines and procedures outlined below are designed to help all community members and visitors feel safe during their time on campus, and have been designed to align with CDC and Open Safely LA recommendations as well as best practices from a variety of peer institutions and higher education sources. These guidelines and procedures will evolve to meet changing circumstances and continually improve as we gain more knowledge and receive updated expert guidance.
As of May 9, 2022 required weekly testing for unvaccinated faculty, students and staff will end. Unvaccinated individuals remain at higher risk for severe illness related to COVID and should consider getting vaccinated to protect themselves and others at risk for severe illness.
The health and safety of our faculty, students and staff remains our top priority. We continue to encourage everyone to maintain healthy habits that stop the spread of any virus including handwashing, covering your cough or sneeze, not touching your face, and, most importantly, staying home when you are sick, even if you are fully vaccinated.
We will continue to provide updates as needed as changes in operations may occur. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate a very dynamic situation. Stay safe.
