LLS Campus Status Update

We are excited to see the LLS community back on campus for the fall semester! 

The LLS COVID Dashboard is tracking campus cases involving isolation, quarantine and positive cases. The LLS COVID Testing Center is up and running, where a required reservation may be scheduled Monday-Thursday between 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-6 p.m. Curbside testing is available at both the LLS and Westchester campuses by appointment only. Please contact to make arrangements for this service. 

The university's A-Z Index contains more information about the COVID Protocol and Isolation & Quarantine.

Please see LLS Together FAQs for Students and Faculty/Staff for additional information. As always, reopening plans follow public health orders and are subject to change in light of evolving guidance. 

As noted in the recent Community Advisory, all members of the university community must wear masks indoors at LLS and all LMU campuses, regardless of vaccination status. We ask everyone to mask up when outdoors on campus to model safe behavior and protect the health and safety of all members of the campus ocommunity. 

LLS has resumed its pre-pandemic hours as follows:

  • Administrative and academic buildings: Six days per week, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Rains Library: Schedule available on website
  • Lack Reading Room: Seven days per week, 24 hours per day

Please note that campus access will continue to be limited to students, faculty, staff, and approved visitors. In addition, LMU’s Environmental Health and Safety Department continues to work with our LLS COVID Safety Liaisons, Marianne Carlton and Joe Archie, to ensure offices, classrooms, and other campus spaces are aligned with Cal/OSHA and related public health requirements.

Employees who have been working remotely should continue working with their supervisors on plans for returning to the office and working on campus. 

Latest Updates

Students are required to be vaccinated or have a university-approved exemption from vaccination. The university has announced a vaccine mandate for all faculty and staff, and will begin to enforce vaccination requirements for all faculty and staff working on campus, effective August 30.

Please upload your vaccination records at Vax LMU as soon as possible if you have not done so already. You may simply click on the link on your phone, snap a photo of your vaccination card once you're in the app, and submit.
