COVID-19 Updates and Reminders for Spring Semester

From: Vice President Student Life

Dear Students,

As the start of spring semester approaches, and as many of you prepare to travel back to campus, we want to remind you of our current COVID-19 mitigation strategies. These expectations are outlined in the COVID-19 Pledge, and help protect you, your fellow students, and Lewis & Clark faculty and staff.

Please continue to practice good hand hygiene and keep a supply of masks on hand. We strongly encourage you to continue to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and test if you become symptomatic. Free antigen tests are available in the Health Promotion suite located in Templeton 110 or in the Campus Safety office. If you test positive for COVID-19 prior to returning to campus, we advise that you complete your 5-day isolation period at an off-campus site. Please also complete the Student Positive COVID Test (PCT) Form. Our continued diligence around COVID-19 mitigation strategies will be imperative as we will have fewer isolation beds for high-risk individuals due to the Stewart and Odell renovations beginning in January 2023.

Lewis and Clark’s COVID Vaccination Policy

All members of the Lewis & Clark community are required to have received a full primary dose of a COVID vaccination plus a first booster (if eligible). We strongly encourage community members to stay fully up-to-date with their COVID vaccines by receiving all booster doses recommended for their age group by the CDC.

Thank you for continuing to do everything you can to keep our community healthy and vibrant. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact covid19info@lclark.edu.

We are excited to see all of you back on campus!
