LRSC COVID-19 Preparedness & Response

COVID Regulations, Guidance, and Information

Effective August 29, 2022

  • With the exception of the LRSC Nursing Program, Lake Region State College will not require faculty, staff, and students to take a COVID test nor require anyone to wear a mask as a condition of course attendance or participation in an LRSC activity.  The Chair of the Nursing Department may adopt testing, distancing, and mask wearing protocols as necessary and/or as needed by our healthcare partners due to student/faculty clinical obligations.
  • Faculty, staff, and students shall notify the LRSC Human Resources Director of a positive test and/or if they are a close contact of a positive household member.   
  • Lake Region State College requires faculty, staff, and students who test positive for COVID or who are a close contact of a positive household member or roommate to remain off campus or isolated in their resident hall room for the first five days.  These campus restrictions will be lifted on day six.  It is recommended that faculty, staff, and students wear a well fitted mask when in close proximity to others during days six through day ten.  
  • When possible, and when the appropriate technology is available, faculty shall make arrangements for students on restrictions or in isolation to attend class remotely.  Students who choose to extend their isolation through day ten as a precaution, or because they are symptomatic, must also be allowed to attend class remotely.  
  • Lake Region State College’s COVID testing center is closed.  Testing is available by making an appointment with a provider at Altru Clinic.  Personal testing kits are available on campus and free of charge to faculty, staff, and students while supplies remain available.  They can be picked up at the information window near the LRSC Welcome Center.  
  • COVID related travel restrictions have been lifted.  Your supervisor can approve in state travel, the appropriate Vice President may approve out of state travel, and international travel decisions require the approval of the President. 
  • The LRSC COVID Dashboard has been retired.
