Lane Community College is open and excited to welcome you back to campus! As we move into this next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, we appreciate your support to ensure a safe and healthy campus. We all play a role in protecting ourselves and each other. We are prepared with strong plans and safety tools.
Current COVID Precautions
Optional except in locations required by state/federal order.
Vaccinations are encouraged but no longer required.
In-person gatherings allowed
Campus COVID precautions depend on our community’s current COVID risk level, with the exception of the parts of the College that continue to fall under state and federal requirements for healthcare settings. In addition to checking our current precautions (listed above), anyone coming to an LCC facility is asked to complete a daily health assessment (see below).
If you have COVID-19 (you tested positive or your healthcare provider told you that you either have COVID-19 or are a presumptive positive)
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19
- follow these instructions
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Isolate/Isolation: You isolate when you are sick or when you have been infected with the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms. Isolation helps prevent the spread of the disease to others.

Daily Health Assessment
Students, employees, and guests are asked to complete a daily self-health assessment before coming to an LCC facility. Submitting an assessment form is no longer required, but everyone coming to a LCC facility must review the health questions below.
If you answer "yes" to any of the questions, please contact your healthcare provider and do not come to campus. Also, if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, even if you test negative for COVID-19, do not come to campus until your symptoms are gone or a healthcare provider has told you you are no longer contagious.
Please check the CDC website for the most current information.

If you answer “Yes” to any question above, contact your healthcare provider and DO NOT come to campus. For your safety and the safety of others, if you are on campus with these symptoms you may be instructed to go home.
Masks & Face Coverings
In locations where face coverings are required, face coverings must fully cover the nose and mouth. Face shields may not be worn instead of face masks. Gaitors, bandanas, mesh masks, lace masks, and other face coverings with openings, valves, holes, vents, or other visible gaps in the design or material are not in compliance with this policy. Masks are still recommended for those that are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, who are at high risk, or share a household with anyone who is not up to date or at high risk. Find out more information about selecting and wearing masks.
Beginning Fall Term 2022, there will no longer be a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for students and/or employees. However, Lane Community College encourages those able to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. This measure helps protect our community by reducing the potential for serious illness, hospitalization, or death. It also helps limit campus disruptions and enables in-person instruction and activities. The LCC Health Clinic is providing COVID-19 vaccines and boosters to LCC students and employees by appointment. To determine if you are eligible for a booster dose or may need additional doses because of an immunocompromising condition, please see the CDC guidelines.
Lane Community College regularly reviews COVID-19 safety guidelines.
