Looking at the Response to COVID-19 By Lewis and Clark Community College.

By Dillon Neibel



The COVID-19 virus continues to impact lives and operations on a daily basis, with constant adaptation being a necessity. That adaptation is not lost on the operations of L&C, as many actions have been taken to continue educating students with safety in mind.

Many classes are offered in a virtual format, but for classes that require hands-on in-person experience, a matter of precautions are being taken.

For any faculty, staff, or students who must be on campus, they are required to fill out a daily certification form stating that the individual is not experiencing symptoms or have possibly been exposed to someone with the virus.

Masks, social distancing, room capacity limits, increased sanitization measures, and several other precautions are being taken to ensure the safety for those who are on campus.


A student relief fund of over $20,000 has been raised for students facing financial struggles because of the pandemic. L&C has also received $1,031,190 from the Department of Education (DOE) for those affected by COVID-19.



If you happen to test positive or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19  and have been on campus please contact The Family Health Clinic at (618) 468-6800.
