Face-to-face classes to resume Jan. 24, 2022

After two weeks of virtual classes, OLLU will return to face-to-face classes on Jan. 24, 2022. 

Courses listed as “lecture” in the course schedule are face-to-face classes and will begin meeting in person according to their scheduled class days, times and locations. Courses listed as “hybrid” or “hyflex” may have a face-to-face component. Students in these courses should consult with their professor about when classes will meet in person.

Safety Measures

We will continue following the guidance provided by health experts.

Masks

Due to the continuing threat COVID-19 has posed and in an effort to protect our community, OLLU continues to require masks for all individuals on our campuses -- both vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Masks must be worn in classrooms, hallways, meeting spaces and other common areas in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Recent information released by the CDC indicates that KN95 and surgical (also called medical procedure) masks provide greater protection than cloth masks. KN95 or surgical masks should be worn in classrooms and other spaces where students and employees gather.

COVID-19 Vaccinations and Testing

OLLU is not, at this time, making COVID-19 vaccinations a requirement for anyone. The university, however, strongly encourages all employees and students to receive the vaccination and voluntarily share your vaccine status with the university by using our online system for uploading your vaccine record .

  • The university will continue to monitor court cases related to vaccine and testing requirements. At this time, the university is not requiring unvaccinated employees to submit weekly COVID-19 tests.. 
  • Students living in the residence halls will need to submit a COVID-19 test when returning to campus for the spring semester. Details were emailed to students by the Residence Life Office.

OLLU campuses will continue the widespread use of hand sanitizing stations, increased disinfecting of high-traffic, high-touch areas as well as the use of plexiglass guards in key student services areas.
