The LSU Health New Orleans School of Public Health is actively responding to the Coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19) and participating with the City of New Orleans and Louisiana State Health Department to address this emergency. We are committed to our community and also to the mission of our School and University and will continue to work to advance the public’s health and well-being through education, research and service. We have created this COVID-19 informational page to provide both our LSU community and the community at large with up-to-date information. It will also feature the activities that the School of Public Health is engaged in during the COVID-19 outbreak.
