Classes are cancelled at the Lake Region State College Campus in Devils Lake for Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
As part of our COVID Safe Restart plan, our classrooms were to have been upgraded so remote attendance could be possible for those needing to isolate or quarantine. We were unable to accomplish this prior to the start of the fall semester as much of the equipment arrived later than expected. The technology is here and ready for installation. Working around class schedules is difficult and would cause additional delays.
Lake Region State College does have one campus-based positive case currently in isolation off-campus and 22 campus-based individuals in quarantine due to being a close contact of a positive case. These individuals need to be able to access his/her classes, which is why we are allowing our IT department the time to get these rooms ready.
Our COVID-response measures including reports of positive cases and quarantine cases are listed on the college website: https://www.lrsc.edu/discover-lrsc/lrsc-covid-19-preparedness-response. These pages show reports since August 10, 2020 and are updated daily by noon.
Lake Region State College is being proactive to identify cases through testing and by assisting public health departments with contact tracing. The college will continue to do these activities to help slow the spread.
