BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The Southern University System says it’s working with Ochsner using the hospital system’s Safe to Return Employer Solutions guidelines to ensure a healthy and safe phased returns for its students and employees.

Southern says it enlisted Ochsner to perform a comprehensive on-site assessment of all its campuses and give recommendations about how to safely reopen. Based on those recommendations, Southern will implement the following actions:

  • Deploy signage to encourage safe social distancing practices and proper hand hygiene
  • Place hand sanitizer stations and wipes in all public areas
  • Display posters with information on COVID-19 symptoms and how students and employees can best protect themselves
  • Mandate daily temperature checks at all campus entry points
  • Require masks in all public areas where social distancing is not feasible and provide access to necessary personal protective equipment
  • Offer a Virtual Employer Clinic, powered by TytoCare, so employees can virtually talk to a provider without leaving the office

Southern says it will reassess its campuses on a monthly basis to provide updated recommendations as needed based on information from the CDC.
