COVID Prevention Center
About the CPC
The COVID Prevention Center was formed at the direction of President Crumpton-Young, to coordinate all efforts to keep our campus safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID Prevention Center (CPC) will take a five-pronged approach:
Integration: Coordination of all campus entities to streamline COVID-19 processes and increase response efficiency. CPC will ensure proper communication of policies and relevant updates to all external and internal stakeholders.
Testing: Coordination of campus-wide testing at our on-campus Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified PCR laboratory. Integration of laboratory, testing site, and electronic health records (EHR).
Surveillance: Coordination of contact tracers and oversight of COVID Hotline oversight. Monitoring, tracking, genomic sequencing, and case management.
Vaccination: Overcoming vaccine hesitancy, eliminating barriers, increasing vaccination rates, and providing vaccine opportunities.
Education: Streamlining policies and efforts to ensure educational continuity for students.
The TSU COVID Prevention Center is designed to increase health security at Texas Southern University. The Center, we will use evidence-based practices, public health guidance, and increased surveillance to minimize exposure and reduce COVID-19 transmission to maintain the standard of excellence at TSU.
