State Guidance and Resources
To date, Lansing Community College has experienced no confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmission within LCC’s operational environment. However, the college has tracked several cases of students and employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 as a result of personal activities off campus.
Upon notice of potential cases of campus exposure, LCC’s Incident Command Team (ICT) initiates a series of response protocols. The Governor’s Executive Order directs LCC to collaborate with the local health department (LHD) to determine the appropriate actions. The individuals affected are requested to follow the protocols established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the state and the LHD. The college also has an agreement with Sparrow Occupational Health Services for testing as needed.
The college contracts a nationally recognized professional cleaning service, which provides services to colleges and universities across the U.S. They deliver routine and specialized disinfection services to provide a safe and healthy work and educational environment. LCC remains focused on the health and safety of our students and employees.
The link above goes to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ data on COVID-19 cases at schools across the state of Michigan. We appreciate that the state is providing this transparency to help keep our students, employees and community members informed, no matter where they are in the state.
During this unprecedented health emergency, LCC is working to maintain a safe environment and continue providing a quality education. We encourage all students and employees to continue following the best practices listed below to stay safe on and off campus:
- Anyone coming to campus or a clinical site is required to complete a daily health screening before arriving. Anyone not coming to campus or a clinical site should not complete this screening.
- Wear a face covering or mask while on campus and at clinical sites.
- Physically distance by maintaining a space of at least six feet between individuals. Please do not congregate before or after class or clinicals, or during breaks.
- Wear any and all personal protective equipment required in your courses or at your clinical location.
- Follow the safety protocols established by your program and/or clinical site.
- Wash or sanitize your hands regularly.
- Avoid sharing equipment or supplies.
- Know the symptoms of COVID-19. Learn more from cdc.gov/coronavirus.
- Take care of your emotional well-being as well as physical well-being! All students are eligible to use LCC’s free, confidential Counseling Services.
We will get through this together. Remember, safety is a shared responsibility.
