COVID-19 Update - March 25, 2020

March 25, 2020

  1. UPDATE: CLC COVID-19 Cases – There were no notifications through the Health Center today regarding any new confirmed positive COVID-19 cases at CLC. As of March 25, 2020, the Lake County Health Department (LCHD) reports 135 confirmed cases in Lake County, IL. The first case was identified March 11, 2020. I saw the below graphic today and thought I would share it. I think it is a good representation of why the College’s Alternative Learning Delivery and Remote Work Model, as well as the Governor’s stay at home order can achieve the desired effect of reducing cases.Social Distancing Diagram
  2. REMINDER: STUDENT/COMMUNITY RESOURCE – During these uncertain times, many community members and students are struggling. If you know of someone wondering what resources are available in Lake County across a multitude of topics, please share the 211 information with them. Visit https://211lakecounty.org/.
  3. LOOKING FORWARD: I know many are wondering what is on the horizon beyond April 7 (Governor’s stay at home order deadline) and April 12 (CLC Alternative Delivery and Remote Work plan deadline). I wish I could offer a firm answer on this, but at the present time the answer is unknown as so much depends on the data related to the spread of COVID-19.
  4. For now, CLC’s Model remains in effect until April 12, 2020. Our goal is to align with the Governor’s messaging, so I do not anticipate a change in the CLC date until then and after consultation with the Board of Trustees, as well as many around the College. I will keep you updated as we move through the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, stay the course, stay focused, and keep doing the great work you do.
