May 26, 2021

Dear Loyola Community,

Loyola University Chicago's weekly Return to Campus Update helps keep our community informed as we continue our phased reopening.

This week, remember to join more than 7,000 other Loyolans and upload your vaccination card and learn more about the Return to Campus Checklist, mask guidance in the Early Summer reopening phase, and LUie, Loyola's digital assistant.

Upload Your Vaccination Card

Uploading your vaccination card to the Loyola Health function is quick, easy, and secure. Vaccination card uploads have doubled in the past week, so thank you to all the Ramblers who have already done so! To upload your card, use these detailed instructions.

After you upload your card, you will be contacted if your upload was approved or not approved. If it is not approved, you will receive an email asking you to check for the most common errors and to upload your vaccination card again. If you have questions from there, we encourage you to reach out to COVID-19support@LUC.edu.

REMINDER: All Private Health Information at Loyola, including your vaccine records, is kept in strict confidence and protected by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant applications and storage. Learn more.

Mask Update

Loyola has now moved to the Early Summer phase of our phased reopening plan. Under this phase, masks are no longer required outside on campus, except when participating in a group event. Masks are still required indoors at all times.

Loyola’s mask requirement will continue to be evaluated and updated in future reopening phases based on guidance from the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and our own University public health experts.
