Loyola's response to COVID-19

Loyola will continue online-only instruction through the end of the spring semester. Until further notice, all Loyola campuses are closed to all but authorized personnel.

If any member of our community is diagnosed with COVID-19, students should call the Student Health Center directly, and faculty, staff, and administrators should contact their supervisors.

Check Loyola's emergency information page for the current status on University events and services. 

Please check back as this page will continue to be updated with more information. Questions may be sent to coronavirus@loyola.edu.

Travel

Non-essential University-affiliated travel is restricted until further notice. The vice president in each area will determine whether travel is essential.

Loyola is following CDC recommendations that if you arrive from an area where there is a travel advisory, you will need to stay home and monitor yourself for 14 days following arrival, and promptly report a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. If you remain free of symptoms, including fever, through the course of this 14-day period without medication, there are no additional activity restrictions and you may return to work and/or school on day 15. During this 14-day self-quarantine, watch for any changes in your health and avoid contact with others. If you develop symptoms, call your health care provider for an initial phone screening.

The office of international programs is and will continue to be in touch with all students who are studying abroad. We will provide them with the most up-to-date information, working closely with their programs.

Emergency Relief Fund

Loyola has created an Emergency Relief Fund to aid community members facing difficulties with travel expenses, sudden loss of housing, medical emergencies or mental health crises, temporary loss of income, short-term food needs, technology, and other expenses.
