COVID-19 Faculty & Staff Information

All emergency proclamations pertaining to COVID mitigation end on 10/31/22. Although the state-issued emergency rules are ending, COVID is here to stay for the foreseeable future. LCC remains committed to the health and safety of our campus community. It ​is the responsibility of each student and employee to do their part in preventing the spread of this illness. We are still requiring everyone to follow the protocols listed below.

*Please note vaccination is required for Nursing faculty due to requirements for clinical sites. Please contact HR with any questions.

  1. Stay home if you are ill. Monitor for symptoms and follow the college's "Return to Campus Guide," when deciding when to return to campus following illness. If you have questions about when to return, or need a rapid test, please contact Students are required to notify their instructors if they test positive for COVID. If two or more people attending the same class test positive for COVID within seven days of each other, the class must be moved online for seven days. This will be done in order to monitor for in-class spread.


  1. Practice good hand hygiene. One of the most effective forms of controlling the spread of COVID is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. It is also important that you avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with hands that are not clean.
  2. Take care of your health and immune system. Be sure to eat well, get plenty of physical activity, and sleep. Visit the CDC's page to read tips on how to boost your immunity.
