Health and Safety Expectations

Masks and Physical Distancing

All students, faculty and staff are required to wear masks and practice physical distancing of at least six feet while on campus. Learn more about UofL’s Health and Safety Protocols. Remember, face shields do not count as a mask. For more details on mask use, read the Mask FAQs.


All students, faculty and staff on campus are required to get tested, regardless of vaccination status. UofL's contract vendor, Bluewater Diagnostic Lab, is conducting testing for all university members on weekdays on the Belknap and HSC campuses. Learn more.

Feeling symptoms?

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or you are concerned that you may have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you should:

  • Stay at home or in your residential hall.
  • Notify Campus Health at 502-852-6446 or
  • Contact your medical provider.
  • If you are an employee, notify your supervisor.

Even if you decide to seek care from your own medical provider, be sure to still inform Campus Health so the university can effectively track COVID-19 cases and ensure proper isolation and quarantine procedures for our campus community.

University Response

COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is not required, but it is highly encouraged. UofL Health is the university's designated vaccine administrator. Cardinal Stadium's Purple Lot is the on-campus vaccination site for university members with appointments. All university members will be sent a Student Health Services invitation to confirm if they'd like to be scheduled for an appointment. For details, read the Vaccinations section of the Health Protocols tab, the COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs and the CDC's COVID-19 vaccine information page.  

Testing Dashboard

View the Testing Dashboard for the number of tests, positive cases and negative cases of COVID-19 within our university community. These numbers are updated by Campus Health Services three times per week.

Contact Tracing Process

Once the results of a COVID-19 test are confirmed positive, contact investigation will be initiated by Campus Health Services (Campus Health) in partnership with public health officials. Once contacts have been identified, Campus Health will notify anyone who may have been exposed.
