Online instruction for UL Lafayette students will begin next Wednesday as the University of Louisiana system responds to COVID-19. In a release today, university leaders say remote course delivery is being used to 'mitigate public health concerns'.

No classes are scheduled Monday and Tuesday, but the campus will remain open. Campus services will go on without interruption at residence halls, dining services, student health services, and Edith Garland Dupre Library.

The University release goes on to say, "All employees, including teaching assistants and student workers, should report to work as usual."
