Update: SOWELA COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines (August 9, 2021)

SOWELA will adhere to the orders, proclamations, and regulations of the Governor of Louisiana as well as guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) regarding COVID-19.

Therefore, to assist in decreasing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it is the College’s policy that all students, faculty, and staff (even those who are fully vaccinated) are required to wear masks or face coverings which completely cover the nose and mouth areas while inside any building including, but not limited to, classrooms, labs, offices, hallways, and stairways.

In addition, SOWELA continues to promote social distancing of 6 feet and the practice of frequent handwashing.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms and/or test positive or have been in close contact with an individual known or suspected to be infected, please report the information by using this form (opens new window).
