Yes! In fact, we have a very limited supply (primarily for employees), so you are encouraged to make your own cloth face covering when possible.

Employees can submit a receipt for reimbursement of the materials needed to make their mask. The CDC has provided tutorials on how to make cloth face coverings.

LCC will provide each employee with a cloth face covering who chooses not to wear one of their own. If you choose to use a face covering issued by the College, you can pick one up at the beginning of your next shift on campus. Bring your employee ID to Campus Services or Security, Monday through Friday (8am - 3pm) starting Tuesday April 14, 2020.
