Campus Status, Plans and Safeguards

COVID-19 Planning

Saint Louis University's fall 2021 semester is underway. In the words of University President Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., extensive human connection makes an on-campus Saint Louis University experience a life-changing one. 

Through much of the last academic year, COVID-19 spread was very low on our St. Louis campuses.  With a vaccination requirement and updated guidance in place for COVID-19 prevention in place, the SLU community is working to continue that extraordinary success this academic year.

This fall sees a return to: 

  • Full classrooms and labs
  • In-person study groups and advising
  • Guest lectures
  • Events, retreats, concerts and other typical campus social gatherings

COVID-19 Prevention Basics

 Saint Louis University's fall 2021 COVID-19 prevention guidance relies upon four critical COVID-19-prevention safeguards:

  • Being fully vaccinated or having a University-approved vaccine exemption
  • Wearing face masks when indoors
  • Health monitoring through daily symptom checks and periodic COVID-19 testing
  • Assisting our contact tracing team

All University community members, as well as contractors who work on campus, must abide by the same COVID-19-prevention safeguards — regardless of whether they are vaccinated or unvaccinated.
