Health and Safety Expectations

Masks and Physical Distancing

All students, faculty and staff are required to wear masks or face coverings and practice physical distancing of at least six feet while on campus. Learn more about UofL’s Health Protocols.


Testing for COVID-19 will be provided by the university in two waves. The first wave of testing is available now through August 21 on weekdays on the Belknap and HSC campuses. All university members are strongly urged to get registered and tested. For details on registration, specific times, locations and what to bring, read the Testing section of the Health Protocols tab.

Contact Tracing Process

UofL's contact tracing team of dedicated university health professionals will trace, notify, and advise any individuals who may have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 person.

Once testing has been performed and the results are confirmed positive, contact investigation will be initiated by Campus Health Services in partnership with public health officials. Once contacts have been identified, Campus Health will notify anyone who may have been exposed.
