Delgado Cares

What is the most recent coronavirus information for Delgado Community College students, faculty, and staff?

We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 and the College is prepared to pivot at any time in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and others safe. 

  • Stay home if you are sick and notify your supervisor. Students who are sick must stay home and must be provided opportunities to make up assignments due to illness.
  • Practice good hygiene, including covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing, using hand sanitizer stations when entering common areas, and washing your hands multiple times a day.
  • We will continue to operate using the increased cleaning protocols recommended by the CDC to ensure that all campus buildings are cleaned and disinfected consistently with that guidance.
  • Our HVAC and Ventilation systems have been equipped with an Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation System (UVGI). UVGI lights are engineered to target and eradicate very specific types of airborne contaminates, specifically bacteria, viruses (COVID), and airborne microbes. Also, portable HEPA air purifiers will continue to be strategically placed throughout all campuses and sites. 

COVID-19 Testing and Vaccination

  • The Louisiana Department of Health website  provides detailed information about the available COVID-19 vaccines, including current eligibility requirements. 
  • Information about COVID-19 vaccinations and testing, including locations in Orleans and Jefferson parishes, is posted at the NOLA Ready website.
