Student Health Services is an essential component in assisting the Xavier Community in its comprehensive efforts to keep students and employees safe by enacting health and safety policies that align with the guidance from local, state, and federal public health authorities as well as the American College Health Association.
We will offer asymptomatic testing for all students and employees and will work closely with the Public Health Sciences department for contact tracing, identification and quarantine of all persons exposed to COVID-19.
Student Health Services will assist with managing all students with COVID-19 symptoms or diagnosis and all students under quarantine after exposure, including placement in isolation/quarantine housing, psychological support, support for basic needs, and ongoing monitoring while isolated.
We strongly encourage the Xavier Community to take on individual responsibility and commitment in abiding by health guidelines to successfully mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Institutional controls are only as effective as the willingness of individuals to carry them out. It will be imperative for everyone—faculty, staff, and students—to take responsibility for their actions and adhere to the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Louisiana State Department of Health, and the local guidelines of the New Orleans Health Department.
A successful semester will consist of vigorous testing, deft contact tracing, and the timely isolation or quarantine of ill and exposed campus community members.
