Whether it is in-person, via video conference or by phone, we are here for students! We do experience an increase in phone calls during this time; so, if possible, we ask that students reach out to us via text, and we will help them as soon as possible.

Message from the President

Three LLCC employees working on the main campus have tested positive for COVID-19. These appear to be isolated cases. They are currently recovering at home, and we wish them a speedy recovery. Anyone reported to have been exposed to these employees has been notified. We have also taken extra steps to clean and sanitize identified work areas. We are working with the Sangamon County Health Department and following appropriate guidelines.

We continue to urge everyone to follow protocols including, most importantly, staying home if you are feeling ill. Employees must complete the daily online assessment before coming to work. Also, everyone must wear a mask or face covering in a college facility. Maintain six feet of social distance from others; follow building signage for designated entrances, exits and traffic flow; and wash your hands often.

Please refer to www.llcc.edu/covid-19-college-update for more information. Thank you for your efforts as we continue to work together to maintain a safe working and learning environment.

Charlotte Warren, Ph.D.
President
Lincoln Land Community College
