Given the fluid nature of the coronavirus outbreak and the potential need to get information to you fast, we will be posting future updates using a number of platforms to combat the potential lag time involved in sending bulk emails. Please check lsu.edu/coronavirus and official LSU social media accounts (LSU Facebook and LSU Twitter), as well as continuing to monitor your emails, to be sure you’re receiving the most up-to-date information and to ensure it’s from an official source. We’ll also notify the news media if and when developments occur so that they can help us get the word out as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, practicing everyday preventative hygiene is the most important thing we can all do right now. That means thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water at regular intervals, covering coughs and sneezes, limiting close contact with others and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. The CDC has a comprehensive list of COVID-19 preventative behaviors at cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community.
