Posted by:
January 15, 2021

We received word that a PLU employee tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing has been initiated, and one close contact has been notified.

We are required to honor the Washington State law that protects this individual’s confidential information and privacy, and as a result, we will not release their name. All of us at PLU wish our fellow Lute a speedy, safe return to health!

Please continue to take all precautions outlined in the Return to Work Guide, including wearing face masks, maintaining basic hygiene, physical distancing, and self-monitoring for symptoms.

For questions, please contact our COVID-19 Site Supervisor, Teri Phillips (phillitp@plu.edu) or utilize the form on the campus COVID-19 website.

If you need personal support:

  • Students can contact PLU Counseling, Health & Wellness Services and seek 24/7 medical and mental-health support with LuteTelehealth.
  • Faculty and staff, if you need someone to talk to now, please connect with PLU’s Employee Assistance Program at (800)777-4114 for support. Health concerns should be directed to your personal healthcare provider.

Stay informed, and stay safe.
