Greetings Pios!

This email is to inform you that the Spring 2021 COVID-19 Attestation of Mitigation Steps form required for all undergraduate in-person students is now live and ready for completion.

All Lewis & Clark students planning to be on campus this Spring are asked to attest that they have observed a two week period of voluntary self-isolation/limitation on social exposure prior to arrival on campus. Self-isolation in this context is defined as staying in your place of residence to the fullest extent possible for 14 days prior to arrival on campus, limiting contacts with those outside your immediate household, and minimizing any travel from home, except for essential trips (e.g. doctor’s appointments, trips to the grocery store - and in all of these adhering closely to social distancing protocols). All LC students are asked to limit social contacts and exposure to others, especially those outside of your immediate social unit (e.g., your household, family) for the two weeks prior to your arrival. If you are in a home where the others you live with are not self-isolating, you should minimize close contact with them by avoiding situations where you have face-to-face contact closer than 6 feet for more than 15 minutes. Students are especially asked to avoid attending large gatherings or social hotspots, and absolutely avoiding those where social distancing cannot be maintained and face coverings are optional or not effectively practiced (e.g. bars, parties, gyms, etc.). Overnight trips or nonessential travel should be curtailed.

We are aware that some of you may need to travel by airplane, bus or train in order to get to campus. Such travel will not invalidate your 14-day pre-arrival self-isolation. All students should follow the recommended CDC guidelines for travel in order to reduce the risk of exposure.

If it is impossible for you to self-isolate at home for the full two weeks prior to arrival to campus (e.g., due to work commitments), you should plan to self-isolate as much as possible. Students who will be unable to meet the College’s expectations for the two-week self-isolation should contact Ami Hanna, Case Manager and Contact Tracer, as soon as possible at hannae@lclark.edu to discuss your options if you require an exception. Upon arrival to campus, you will need to self-isolate in your residence until you have received COVID testing and negative results have been confirmed. While all CAS students will be COVID-tested near the start of the semester, students who have been unable to self-isolate for two weeks prior to campus arrival will be COVID tested first, starting about Wednesday, January 20. It currently takes up to two to three business days for the Health Service to receive test results.

This form should be completed no earlier than three (3) days prior to your arrival on campus, but no later than January 17th, 2021. Please note that failure to complete your attestation prior to campus arrival and/or failure to complete required testing upon arrival to campus can result in disciplinary action through the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities.

Whether you are returning to campus or coming to campus for the first time this Spring, we thank you for committing to protect our community! True community safety takes all of us doing our part to keep each other healthy.
