Late yesterday the College learned that a CAS student who lives off-campus tested positive off-campus for COVID. This student was last on campus on Thursday, April 22. The student is now isolating. 

The College’s contact tracing process has been completed. One close contact within the Lewis & Clark community was identified and is quarantining. (A “close contact” is defined as someone who has been within six feet of an infected person for more than 15 minutes.)

Please continue to follow all of the necessary safety precautions regarding face coverings, social distancing, hand washing, monitoring yourself for COVID symptoms and taking your daily temperature. More information about positive cases, and potential campus impacts, can be found on our COVID-19 Confirmed Cases Status Report.

 

As a reminder:

Students with symptoms of COVID-19 are expected to immediately self-isolate in their residence; complete the COVID Self-Check and Reporting Form (SCARF), available through the Health Information Portal; consult with a healthcare provider, and follow the directions of that healthcare provider. This consultation can be provided by Health Service staff between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays. Anytime the Health Service is closed, students can access the Nurse Consultation Service at 1-844-915-2069. Students with symptoms need to follow the Guidelines for Self-Isolation.

 

Employees with symptoms of COVID-19 are expected to stay at their residence and may not come to campus. Employees are to inform AVP and Director for Human Resources Heyke Kirkendall-Baker, seek medical advice from their regular health care provider or public health authority, and follow the Monitoring, Isolation and Quarantine Plan for Lewis & Clark Employees.

For more information on COVID-19, including symptoms of which you may want to be aware, please visit the Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 website or the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention COVID-19 website.
