As you know, the College implemented temporary COVID-19 protocols to address the Omicron variant. I want to thank each of you for your diligence and care during this time. I know that the necessary changes in protocols over the past year have at times been frustrating and confusing. I am grateful to our covid@centenary.eduteam for answering many questions and providing guidance. You can continue to contact this team for assistance.

Today, the College has two active COVID-19 cases and a two-dose vaccination rate of 92% for students and full-time faculty and staff. In addition, COVID-19 infections in Louisiana are decreasing daily. For these reasons, Centenary will be lifting some of our temporary protocols over the next week.

Centenary will continue with following COVID-19 protocols through Thursday, February 10:

  • Masks are required for all students, faculty, staff, contract personnel, and visitors in all indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. Previous exceptions regarding personal space still apply.
  • Masks are not required outdoors.
  • Campus guests and spectators are allowed at outdoor events.


The College is postponing the booster requirement at this time, but continues to strongly recommend receiving a booster dose of the vaccine as soon as you are eligible.

Centenary will implement the following changes to COVID-19 protocol beginning Friday, February 11.

  • Masks will be required in classrooms (including outdoor classrooms). Exceptions to this policy will be approved through the Provost’s Office.
  • Unvaccinated individuals will be required to mask indoors at all times.
  • Campus guests and spectators will be allowed at indoor events and in the FIT. Proof of vaccination may be required at campus events.


If you have any questions about these or related protocols, please reach out to or to me.
