COVID-19 Campus Update

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 3/13/2020

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I want to thank everyone, once again, for your continuing efforts to deal with the challenges and complications caused by COVID-19.  The College Crisis Team met this morning and will continue to meet daily, and I am grateful for the expertise the team is bringing to this unprecedented situation.  Based on this morning’s meeting, I am writing now to provide the specific information below, which may help your individual planning for the weekend and days that follow.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 College administrative staff should prepare to work next week on campus or remotely, if approved by their supervisors.  Please see the March 11, 2020 email from HR Director Agnes Stepek for relevant details.

For students on campus:

  • Please complete immediately, if you have not already done so, the brief ResLife survey that you can access at this link:  http://121carhireportugal.com/live/forms/314.
  • Parkhurst will provide daily meals at Boomers for students still on campus next week.  Menus will be posted later today on the Food U app and at  .  In addition, the Market on the lower level of Mohr Student Center has been freshly restocked with a variety of “grab and go” food items and other supplies.
  • The Health and Wellness Center has prepared helpful instructions for utilizing its services, which were emailed today to all students.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 The Career Advancement Center is in direct contact with students engaged in internships this spring, and is working to make appropriate arrangements for all internships by next week.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 Campus events, including rehearsals, remain cancelled indefinitely, and any exceptions must be approved by Dean Schneiderman or Dean Conner.

As previously communicated, the website 121carhireportugal.com/coronavirus will continue to be your best source of current relevant information.  If you have specific questions or concerns that are not addressed on the website, please send them to coronavirus@121carhireportugal.com and we will make every effort to respond within 24 hours.

COVID-19 Campus Update

3/12/2020

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

We are all in a very challenging time, and COVID-19 realities are rapidly evolving.  The College and our community have been through challenging times before, however, and I have no doubt that we will successfully navigate this one.  Thanks for the cooperative spirit that all of you have shown thus far, and thanks for your continuing efforts to take good care of each other.

The COVID-19 situation, nationally and regionally, is already different today than yesterday, so please pay careful attention to this important update.  In yesterday’s campus message, I informed you that spring break would be extended through next Tuesday, March 17.  I now need to tell you that:

  • The College has decided to extend the spring break through all of next week, inclusive of Friday, March 20;
  • We expect classes will resume on Monday, March 23, and we will inform you at the latest by next Wednesday, March 18, if all classes will move entirely to online formats for the rest of the semester;
  • We will also inform you at the latest by next Wednesday, March 18, if the College will be able to maintain a residential program for the rest of this semester.

This update is influenced by the World Health Organization’s declaration yesterday that COVID-19 is a pandemic, by President Trump’s address last night, by the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Illinois, and by other fast-moving developments.  COVID-19 is compelling colleges across our region to make large, serious academic and programmatic decisions very quickly.  I hope the clarity in this message – that spring break is extended through next week, and that the College will make a final decision about the remainder of this semester by next Wednesday, March 18 – will help you make your individual plans. The Dean of the Faculty, Office of Faculty Development, and Information Technology Services will follow-up with further guidance and support for faculty.

In addition, effective next week, all group events on campus are cancelled until further notice.  This decision is based on the advice of public health officials, and is designed to prevent or slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  If you wish to apply for an exception regarding a specific campus event, please contact either Dean Schneiderman or Dean Conner, but know that we intend to grant few exceptions.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线  Also effective immediately, all nonessential institutional travel by students, faculty or staff must be cancelled or postponed.

For students who will continue to reside on campus during the extended spring break, the cafeteria will remain closed next week.  Parkhurst will serve meals from Boomers, including deli and vegetarian options, beginning Sunday evening.  These can be debited from students’ meal plans.  The Market will also be open and available for individual purchases on the lower level of the Mohr Student Center.

Thanks once more to everyone for everything you’re doing to help our community weather this new storm.  I am grateful to all of you.

Lake Forest College

COVID-19 Campus Update

3/11/2020

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

The coronavirus COVID-19 continues to spread across the United States and around the globe. There are no known cases on the Lake Forest College campus. Because the number of cases continues to rise across the country, however, the College must move forward with plans to prevent or slow the transmission of the virus as best we can, to protect the health and safety of our campus community.  With this in mind, our campus crisis team is in regular contact with local and state public health officials, and we are following all available guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 As a first step, the College is extending the current Spring Break through Tuesday, March 17.  If events require that this extension go further, you will be notified immediately.

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 We know this extension will be disruptive, but it will provide necessary time for faculty to adapt current courses, in whole or part, to incorporate distance learning modalities.  When classes resume, the College will adopt a course-specific Flexible Attendance policy for faculty and students. This policy will allow individuals to make attendance decisions based upon their personal situations, including students or faculty who may need to make a choice for a sustained absence from campus. Faculty who are absent should deliver course content using Moodle and other online tools, and students should be permitted to make up missed work or have course content delivered remotely, without penalty for attendance-based grades. Further, faculty should prepare for the possibility of a future emergency suspension of classes, and the Dean of the Faculty will provide more information on that topic very soon. As a final point, students should regularly check email for course-related updates from their professors or the Office of the Dean of Faculty.

Administrative staff members will also be authorized to make individual decisions about being present on campus, if necessary to protect their health and safety. HR Director Agnes Stepek will provide more information promptly, and staff members should contact their direct supervisors as needed.

For the majority of students who are away from campus this week, we encourage you to delay your return until next Tuesday, March 17.  We realize some residential students may have no option to stay away from campus until then, and ResLife is making provisions for students already here or those who must return over the next several days.  If you are such a student, please contact reslife@121carhireportugal.com免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 immediately so that the College can maintain an accurate list of students on campus.  In addition, all residential students will shortly receive – and must complete – a vital survey about spring break-related travel and other important information. 

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 I want to assure everyone on campus, as Dean Conner previously communicated, that custodial and other staff are following CDC and other professional guidance about wiping down computer labs, tables and other public surfaces.  In addition, the College is supplying hand sanitizers and approved cleaning wipes – subject to availability – in locations across campus.  As of now, the cafeteria is scheduled to be open on Monday, March 16, with a reduced number of stations so that Parkhurst staff can serve diners at all of them.  The elimination of self-serve stations, except for the salad bar, will reduce the possibilities of contamination that can occur through self-service.

I also urge everyone to continue practicing the following health-protective measures:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cover a cough with your arm, elbow or shoulder.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick, and try to stay three to six feet apart from someone who is sneezing or coughing.
  • Stay home if you have a fever or are otherwise sick.  Staff will receive this week new guidance about this from HR Director Agnes Stepek.

The College will provide frequent updates to this message, starting tomorrow, including information about campus events that may be cancelled in days and weeks ahead.  Now and in the future, the website 121carhireportugal.com/coronavirus will be your best source of current, relevant information.  If you have specific questions or concerns that are not addressed on the website, please send them to coronavirus@121carhireportugal.com and we will make every effort to respond within 24 hours.

Thanks to everyone for your cooperation and the support you can give each other in this unprecedented time and situation.

Coronavirus Update - Action Needed

3/4/2020

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

​The College’s Crisis Management Team ​met again this morning to review and ​refresh our existing pandemic plans ​in case a coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak ​should occur in the weeks and months ahead.

If you have not already done so, please submit your spring travel plans through an online form (click here免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线).  We are pleased that more than 500 submissions have been received since Tuesday, but we want to have the most complete view of imminent travel away from campus in order to inform our future safety plans.

Should you or someone in your care present symptoms consistent with coronavirus, please know that medical professionals are advising the patient to NOT travel to an emergency department or urgent care facility. Rather the patient and/or caretaker should first contact a primary care provider by telephone to review symptoms and be triaged accordingly. For students without a primary care provider, they may contact the College’s Health and Wellness Center at (847) 735-5240 (Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm over Spring Break). Following this procedure will help contain any pandemic outbreak, including the need to potentially quarantine important emergency care workers. 

The Crisis Management Team will continue to meet over the Spring Break period and will communicate to the campus community, as needed. 

Please know that this message, along with other coronavirus-related information can be referenced at any time by going to 121carhireportugal.com/coronavirus. We continue to welcome students to share that webpage with your families.

Wishing you a safe Spring Break. 

Andrea

Coronavirus Update

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 3/2/2020

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 Students, faculty, and staff,

​The College’s Crisis Management Team ​met last Friday, February 28, to review and ​refresh our existing pandemic plans ​in case a coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak ​should occur in weeks and months ahead. The team identified and initiated the following strategies:

  1. For the next 10 weeks, all students, faculty, and staff will be asked to submit any out-of-state business or personal travel plans through a confidential web form that will only be reviewed by a member of the Crisis Management Team.  This strategy will help us offer you support if a location you recently visited becomes compromised and quarantine is necessary. Please watch for that link via email tomorrow, under the subject line: ACTION NEEDED: SUBMIT TRAVEL PLANS.  We also urge anyone who plans to travel to check the CDC’s website for the most up to date travel guidance.
  2. The College will ​increase the supply of hand sanitizers and bleach wipes in public areas, and College employees will ​increase efforts to wipe down computer labs, library spaces, athletic facilities, and the like. Parkhurst employees will ​frequently change serving utensils in the dining hall and, whenever possible, will ​lower the sneeze guards to reduce “self-service” options in favor of being served by staff.  This change ​is designed to reduce the increased possibility of contamination that can more easily occur ​through self-service.
  3. Informational posters will be displayed around campus to remind everyone that covering your cough and washing your hands frequently prevents the spread of germs, viruses, and influenza.  We remind you that it is equally important to keep your distance from those who are sick, ​and you should not share drinking cups or bottles ​with anyone else.  Those who are immunosuppressed should continue to stay abreast of the news and stay in touch with their health care providers, especially if regional occurrences of the virus begin to rise. 
  4. We will ​enhance our communication outreach through a webpage dedicated to providing information and resource links. This new webpage is 121carhireportugal.com/coronavirus and we encourage students to share it with interested family members.    
  5. Finally, we recommend that faculty and staff start to consider what they might need in terms of technology and resources in the unlikely event that working from home becomes necessary.  If that were to happen, more information from Human Resources will be distributed, with reminders about our telework, sick day, and Family Medical Leave policies. 

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 Thank you for your continued attention to these matters!

Andrea

Coronavirus Update

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 2/26/2020

Students, faculty, and staff,

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 Many of you have become aware that yesterday the CDC recently increased the level of concern about the likelihood of coronavirus (COVID-19) appearing in the United States in greater numbers.  Experts’ best advice for preventing the spread of this virus – as well as influenza – includes washing your hands, covering your cough, staying home/in your room if you are sick, keeping workspaces clean, keeping your distance from people who are sick, and getting your flu shot.  It’s also important to stay calm and continue to be kind and supportive to members of our campus community. Too many campuses are reporting anti-Asian sentiment, and such microaggressions are clearly unacceptable in our community.

We’d like to take this opportunity to reassure you of a number of things:

  • Throughout this semester, Kathy Salinger (Nurse Practitioner in Health & Wellness) has been in regular contact with the Illinois Department of Public Health and has been monitoring the Centers for Disease Control in order to respond and provide guidance to other administrators as needed. 
  • Student Affairs has been in contact with a few students directly affected by the coronavirus, including students currently outside the United States who have had interruptions to their study abroad plans, as well as those with impacted family members outside of the United States. 
  • Relevant staffers on the College’s Safety Committee recently discussed general preparedness for coronavirus and considered the challenges we’ll need to consider in the event that isolation and/or quarantine instructions are given by local, state, or federal authorities.
  • The Crisis Management Team will meet this week to review the College’s Emergency Operations Plan and our existing pandemic plans, to better prepare for a coronavirus outbreak, if one were to occur in weeks ahead.  We will be guided by recommendations from the American College Health Association, Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization.
  • Rick Cohen (Director of Public Safety) is a member of the Emergency Management Coordinating Council of Lake County. He will be meeting with that organization next week and will provide guidance developed from that discussion.
  • If you are interested in learning more, here are two recent articles and the CDC website:

免费国产aⅴ在线高清无码线 We will keep the campus updated of any significant changes, and will send another update next week before Spring Break travels begin.

Coronavirus and Influenza Update

2/18/2020

Don’t let the flu sneak up on you!

Did you know that it is not too late to get your annual flu shot, which is one of the best ways to decrease your likelihood of getting the flu? Illinois still has a high volume of flu activity, which has increased over the last three weeks. We have flu here on campus as well. So, we all need to stay vigilant in order to reduce the chance of getting this nasty virus!

Limit your risk:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds – about the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday!
  • If you don’t have access to a sink, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Try not to touch your nose, mouth, or eyes without first washing your hands – viral germs can live on surfaces for extended periods of time.
  • Use wipes such as Clorox to clean frequently touched surfaces like door handles, keyboards, remote controllers.

I am sick – now what?

  • Flu symptoms include; fever, cough, sore throat, stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, and occasionally vomiting and diarrhea.
  • It’s hard to tell flu from other respiratory viruses. Flu tends to start suddenly, while other viruses gradually worsen.
  • Rest and stay hydrated.
  • Isolate yourself as much as possible.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or with your arm/sleeve, and then wash your hands.
  • Over the counter medications (like ibuprofen or Dayquil) can help you feel better but don’t kill the flu virus.
  • If you have shortness of breath, rapid breathing, wheezing, chest pain, severe vomiting or other concerning symptoms, call or visit the Health & Wellness Center. Call Public Safety during hours when the Center is closed.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – I’ve been hearing about it, should I be worried?

  • The current outbreak of this new strain of virus was first identified in China, but has now spread internationally.
  • Currently in the United States the health risk to the general public remains low both in the U.S. and in Illinois.
  • The Center for Disease Control and The Illinois Department of Public Health are closely monitoring the situation and are responding and providing guidance as needed.
  • Lake Forest College administrators, in collaboration with the Health & Wellness Center and The NorthShore University Health System, are staying informed of the latest developments and recommendations to keep our community safe.
  • Because of the extent of virus in China, travel restrictions have been enacted:
    • The Center for Disease Control has recommended that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China.
    • Effective February 2, 2020, the U.S. government suspended entry of foreign nationals who have been in China within the past 14 days.
    • U.S. citizens, residents and their immediate family members who have been in mainland China are allowed to enter the U.S. but are subject to health monitoring and possible quarantine for up to 14 days.
  • Lake Forest College is strongly discouraging travel to China over spring break.
  • If you have concerns or would like individualized information about this novel (new) Coronavirus, please call the Health & Wellness Center or make an appointment online.
  • We will keep students informed of significant changes as needed.
  • Here is a link to the CDC website for updates as they are published:
