College continuing plans for staying safe during eventual return to on-campus work and school

As Michigan begins to ease its stay-at-home order, LCC continues to plan for how to safely operate in a face-to-face environment.
Most classes will be taught online during the fall, which will help limit the number of people on campus at any time and allow for proper social distancing. Here are a few other things we know about our eventual return to campus, although we are still working out many details:

  • Our in-person return to campus will be staggered. This will allow those with a greater need for in-person work to have more space to work on campus, while those who can effectively complete their work from home remain off campus.
  • Employees and students will be required to wear masks or some sort of face covering while on campus for the foreseeable future.
  • Our top priority is the health and safety of our students and employees, and that will guide decision-making.

The Business Resumption Task Force and Incident Command Team continue to meet weekly. At this time, only employees who have been deemed “essential” or who otherwise have permission from their Executive Leadership Team member can report to campus in person. Any employee reporting to campus is required to complete a health screening questionnaire before arriving, wear a face covering, maintain at least six feet of distance from others, and check in and out with Public Safety.
We will continue to keep you updated on the college’s progress toward business resumption. Keep an eye on The Star and other communication tools for regular messages.
