COVID-19 Protocols for Summer Sessions 2022
SLU-Madrid's protocols for this summer are based on our commitment to teaching and learning as well as the health and wellbeing of our community. These protocols may change — due to government and public health regulations or due to our own commitment to keeping the campus community safe. If they change, we will let you know.
SLU-Madrid requires you to:
- Wear a face mask indoors whenever social distancing (1.5 meters) is not possible, with the exception of the cafeteria, while eating.
- Respect the requests of others to maintain social distance (1.5 meters) or to wear a face mask, indoors or outdoors, when social distancing is not possible.
- Practice hand hygiene.
- Monitor your health.
If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, you should perform a diagnostic test, available at pharmacies. You should exercise extreme caution, reduce social interactions, wear a mask when on campus or in public, and avoid contact with vulnerable people. If you test positive for COVID-19 or have COVID-19 related concerns, please email or call:
