COVID-19 Update for Students - June 17, 2020 Safety precautions for Summer Boost students returning to classes on campus in July

Published Jun 17, 2020

As you arrive on campus for Summer Boost classes starting July 6, you’ll notice the college has taken extra steps to keep you safe. Watch this video for important information.

CLC prepared the following precautions to follow Illinois health and safety guidelines:

  • Prior to arriving on campus, you will need to complete the required safety module available in the Canvas site for your course, available beginning June 22.
  • Upon completion of this required safety module, you will receive a Fast Pass certificate. Either print or show a photo of the Fast Pass on your phone to access entrance to campus daily during Summer Boost.
  • If you plan to take the bus, check with PACE for service changes. PACE recommends but is not requiring passengers wear a face mask. PACE is also practicing social distancing with a maximum of 15 passengers per bus. Once the bus reaches capacity, no other passengers will be allowed to board and you will have to wait for the next bus. Please plan accordingly.
  • Enter the building at the designated entrance with picture ID, Fast Pass and face mask.
  • Allow extra time to get to your classroom on the first day.
  • Face masks covering the mouth and nose are required while on campus. They must meet educational environment standards. A mask will be provided at the entrance if you do not have your own.
  • Practice social distancing by staying six feet apart in classrooms and campus spaces.
  • Class sizes are limited to 9 or less.
  • Classrooms, restrooms and campus spaces will be deep cleaned regularly.

We remind you to wash your hands with soap and water regularly and use hand sanitizer in between. If you feel sick, stay home and communicate with your faculty member. Consult with your healthcare provider for treatment.

Additionally, financial support is available through the Lancers Keep Learning Fund if COVID-19 has disrupted your education. $2.4M of federal CARES Act funding, in addition to the $267K from CLC and its Foundation, are available as emergency cash grants to help pay for housing, food, course materials, technology, health care and childcare.

As a college community, we will safely navigate these times so learning can continue. Thank you for your trust and cooperation.
