As of September 11, 2020--COVID-19 POSITIVE TEST RESULTS NOTIFICATIONS (LAWSON STATE)
Lawson State Community College received notifications that some students tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently quarantined and receiving medical treatment in accordance with public health protocols. After consulting with the individuals, contact tracing listings have been obtained to identify those who were in close contact with the students with or without a face covering for at least 15 minutes. Out of an abundance of caution and in our efforts to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus the College has notified all employees and/or students who had close contact with the individuals, to the extent possible, and these persons were asked to self-quarantine for the next 14 days and monitor their health or seek medical attention, if necessary. The College identified locations and campus spaces where the persons had been for cleaning and sanitizing of those areas. The protocol requirements of ACCS were adhered to.
September 10 - Two students reported testing positive for COVID-19. Both students live off campus. The students have begun a 14-day isolation and have been directed to follow the protocols established.
September 9 - Two students tested positive for COVID-19. The students have begun a 14-day isolation and have been directed to follow the protocols established.
September 8 - A student tested positive for COVID-19. The student has begun a 14-day isolation and has been directed to follow the protocols established.
Health and safety remain our number one priority. Lawson State is following medical protocols from state and national health authorities and has implemented recommended guidelines in relation to social distancing, hygiene, travel, and visits to the College. In addition, the College is taking additional steps to ensure the cleanliness of our facilities. In the event there are other cases of which the College may become aware, it will use the institution's best efforts to notify those who are determined to have had contact with that individual so they may take recommended health measures. The College is committed to keeping you updated on the local COVID-19 risks and will continue to provide direction to our staff, students, and families with additional instruction as appropriate.
