how is people program operating during covid?


In this unprecedented pandemic, People Program is doing its best to keep its students, teachers and staff safe. Please join us in helping to protect our community!

At the recommendation of  the board, Tulane's Business Resilience and Community Education medical staff, the CDC and the City of New Orleans, we are requiring People Program participants to follow these policies and procedures:

      • MASKS: All people (regardless of vaccination) must wear a CDC approved mask inside the building. It must cover nose and mouth at all times and not be pulled down when speaking. Shields are not permitted instead of a mask.
      • VACCINATION FOR ONCAMPUS CLASSES: Students and instructors attending classes onsite at either West Bank or Lakeshore campuses will show proof of vaccination prior to the first day of class (two shots for Pfizer and Moderna, or one shot for Johnson & Johnson).
      • SOCIAL DISTANCING: Individuals should make an effort to keep 6 feet distance between one another, in addition to wearing masks.

Policies for Covid-19 Exposure

FAQ 1) If an employee/ instructor/student tests positive for COVID-19, what will happen?

1. A mass email will be sent to People Program fall semester students and instructors detailing the class / activity that a person who was positive for COVID attended. The name of that person will NOT be released, according to HIPAA compliance.

2. For those who had close contact with the exposed persons (within 6ft for 15 minutes within 24 hours):

For the person who is positive for COVID-19 and has symptoms, they may return to campus after 10 days symptoms first appeared AND 3 days have passed with no fever (without the use of fever-reducing meds) and improved respiratory symptoms.

For the person who is positive for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, they may return to campus 10 days after their first positive COVID test if they have not developed any symptoms within that time.

Exposed persons, will only be allowed back on campus after producing a negative covid test performed 5-7 days after exposure, OR after quarantining for 14 days. For the health of the rest of the community, all exposed persons are advised to quarantine for at least 5-7 days until they can get a negative test.

3. The campus will undergo extra cleaning in the rooms where exposure occurred in addition to the regular nightly cleaning that the janitorial service provides.

FAQ 4) What do I do if someone in my onsite class is not wearing their mask?

We encourage you to speak up right away, do not wait until the end of class. You can ask your teacher out into the hallway or feel free to reach out to staff with any concerns during class. 

FAQ 5) What do I do if someone in my class is coughing or I feel unsafe in the classroom?

We encourage you to speak up right away, do not wait until the end of class. You can ask your teacher out into the hallway or feel free to reach out to staff with any concerns during class.
