LSU's interim president is calling on students to get tested for COVID-19 at least once a month, even if they're not showing symptoms.

President Thomas Galligan sent a letter to the entire student body Tuesday urging them to visit one of several testing centers set up around campus.

The president says more testing is vital for the university to understand whether the virus is being contained on campus and determine how that could impact the school's current restrictions.

The announcement comes as the university has reported 133 known active cases among students and staff.
