Lenoir-Rhyne is diligently working this summer to upgrade our systems to better support students, faculty and staff. Students should be able to access Self-Service to register for classes, change courses and pay bills using an alternate path. Read the announcement for more information.
Please Note: COVID-19 protocols will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis. Please check this website frequently for the most up-to-date information.
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 remain optional with the following exceptions:
Individual instructors may require masks in their classrooms as part of their standard classroom management.
Those visiting Cornerstone Health Services may be required to wear masks when entering the facility.
While masks are not required except as noted above, anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask on campus is encouraged to do so.
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.
