Are your campuses open?
Yes, classes have been moved online for winter.  We will delay the start of spring quarter to April 13.  The week of April 6-10 we will be providing support for faculty to move all classes on line.

Are you limiting access to campus?
We are open at this time.  We are working on plans to move services online as much as possible if we need to in the future. We are implementing social distancing in all common areas and labs.

Are you practicing social distancing through serving students through email/phone/zoom rather than face to face? We are practicing social distancing and open to our students.

Other practices?
Housing remains open and we have enforced social distancing rules.
We are allowing baseball and softball practice. We cancelled all gym and field rentals.
We have provided emails to faculty, staff and students with updates about our campus.

Hi all-

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe! This is a very surreal time for our nation and the world. We all now have the same directive from the governor's office re: online instruction. At LCC, we're working on social distancing guidelines for serving students (our campus is open still) but planning for total closure if necessary. How are you all serving students right now?

Thanks for sharing your input. Once our guiding document is drafted, I'm happy to share out our plans.
