Disinfection of rooms and spaces

This space has been cleaned and disinfected. Please do not enter without permission. In an effort to provide a safe environment, LLCC Facilities Services has implemented procedures to manage the disinfection of rooms and spaces. You may notice signs posted on doors, “Space has been cleaned and disinfected. Please do not enter without permission.” This is your assurance that we have disinfected the commonly touched surfaces in this space since the last scheduled use of the room, as needed. For offices that do not have scheduled use, the sign would indicate that it has been cleaned since the last time you entered. We ask that you please respect the signs and do not enter a space unless scheduled. When you do access space, please help us by moving the sign to the inside of the door. We will return it to the outside after we are finished disinfecting as per the schedule. For an additional measure, we are also using a small piece of painter’s tape to “seal” the room. Thank you for your cooperation.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please call Tim Ervin at 217-786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Contractors to work on first floor corridor of Sangamon Hall over winter recess

Over winter recess, contractors will be removing and replacing flooring and painting walls on the first floor of Sangamon Hall in the corridor only. They will be using caution tape to section off areas where they are working that might limit pedestrian traffic to some areas for a day or two at a time. They will not have the entire corridor closed off, but will be working their way around the corridor, so access to spaces shouldn’t be an issue over the break. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please call Tim Ervin at 217-786-9605 or at tim.ervin@llcc.edu.

Fire alarm testing today
