The Presidential Task Forcehas worked to create policies and guidelines that guide us during the pandemic. Task force members represent all major areas of campus and have been working diligently to respond to this pandemic and ensure the health and safety of our campus community and also prepare for possible disruptions to our normal operations.
To protect yourself and others, get vaccinated and follow the health and safety guidelines on this page as provided by the CDC.
We expect all faculty, staff and students to practice thorough hand washing at least five times daily while on campus. In addition, there will be hand sanitizing stations throughout campus.
In certain areas on campus we also will install Plexiglas shields to reduce the spread of germs. You will find these shields in the business office and library, for example.
We understand that these policies will require a change in behavior. They are meant to minimize the chance of community spread of the coronavirus and to practice appropriate good hygiene behavior.
Masks & Social Distancing
All faculty, staff, students and visitors are required to wear an appropriately sized mask when in the presence of others on the LR campus. While there will be some disposable masks available in campus buildings, faculty, staff and students and visitors should plan to provide their own.
All face-to-face interactions should practice our social distancing policy of having at least six feet of space in between people, while at the same time wearing a mask or approved face shield. Faculty and staff do not have to wear a mask when alone in their own offices.
Know How COVID-19 Spreads
The best way to prevent illness is to get vaccinated and to avoid being exposed to the virus
If you are around others and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
