Health Advisory: Coronavirus

COVID-19: Coronavirus Updates

Saint Louis University is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the pandemic, our actions have been guided by the University’s strategic objectives, our Jesuit values, data and consensus science, and the expectations of our SLU community. We continue to respond to the latest COVID-19 conditions with policies that will allow us to learn, work, worship and be in community together safely.

Campus Updates: Fall 2022

This fall, our approach to managing COVID-19 seeks to minimize disruptions to our everyday lives as we take necessary steps to suppress widespread outbreaks on campus, reduce the risk of severe disease, and protect the vulnerable members of our community. 
Almost all aspects of campus life have returned to pre-pandemic conditions. We will not be limiting capacity at events, requiring proof of vaccination for campus visitors, implementing physical distancing in our campus spaces, or restricting university-sponsored travel.
COVID-19 testing for returning residential students is optional and may be scheduled online.
Details about our layered approach to COVID-19 mitigation can be found in the Safeguards FAQ.

Vaccine Requirements Continue

For the fall 2022 semester, the COVID-19 primary vaccination series will continue to be required for all students, staff and faculty who will be physically present on our St. Louis campuses. At this time, booster doses are strongly encouraged but are not required.

COVID-19 Prevention Basics

Saint Louis University's current COVID-19 prevention guidance relies upon several critical COVID-19-prevention safeguards:

  • Being vaccinated or having a University-approved vaccine exemption
  • Health monitoring through daily symptom checks and getting tested if symptoms develop
  • 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.
