You may have already heard today that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has issued a “stay-at-home” order for the entire state starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, March 21 through April 7, 2020. All residents are asked to stay in their homes as officials take significant measures to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Our number-one goal is to help each student succeed this semester. Following spring break next week, the College of Lake County alternative learning delivery and remote work models that are currently in place will continue as previously identified through April 12, 2020.

Even though our campuses are not physically accessible during this time, CLC staff and faculty are working remotely to support our students. To find out how to access support and services to assist you, please visit the website.

This is a challenging time for everyone. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance finding food, shelter, rent or utility assistance, or other essential services, call 211 of Lake County. Or you can text your zip code to 898211 to speak with someone who can help. This service is free and available 24/7 to Lake County residents.

Until we are back together on campus again, please take care of yourselves. Remember that this stay-at-home order does not mean you must stay in your home. Getting some fresh air and going for walks with appropriate social distancing is encouraged and important for health and well-being.

Please know that we will get through this and we will be better when we get there, and get there we will. Go Lancers!
