Effective Monday, April 11, all campus visitors—including students, faculty, staff, guests, volunteers, and vendors—ages five and older must provide proof that they are up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This means a person has received all recommended doses in their primary series COVID-19 vaccine and booster doses when eligible.

Campus visitors who are not up to date on vaccinations must display proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within no more than 48 hours of an event to enter. At this time, PCR and rapid antigen tests will be accepted.

Students, faculty, and staff must continue to display the Loyola Health function of the Loyola mobile app before entering. Anyone not in compliance with the vaccine mandate or required testing will be denied entry.

Host or event organizers are responsible for ensuring that visitors comply with the University's health and safety guidelines, including monitoring for vaccine records and test results. Guidelines are available through Campus Reservations.
