  • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves

  • Watch for symptoms for 10 days
  • If you develop symptoms, isolate immediately and get tested
  • Get tested 5 days after the last exposure

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.

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.

Vaccines and boosters now available at the LCC Health Clinic
