Livingstone’s Response to Covid-19

Dear Students:

This is an important update on our continuing response to COVID-19, or novel coronavirus. Livingstone College’s top priority is the well-being and health of our students, faculty and staff. We are committed to ensuring the coronavirus affects as few of the LC family and others as possible. The Coronavirus situation has been a very fast-moving set of circumstances. This is a very fluid situation that has required examination and re-examination of the best course of action as public health officials release new information on an ongoing basis.

Due to some student hardships of securing transportation, we are extending the date of vacating the residence halls until Saturday, March 21, 2020. Please make sure you are communicating with your hall directors.

If you have any outstanding documents regarding financial aid, health forms, etc., please provide that information to the Business Office as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Dr. Orlando W. Lewis
Vice President for Student Affairs Livingstone College

Dear Students:

This is an important update on our continuing response to COVID-19, or novel coronavirus. Livingstone College’s top priority is the well-being and health of our students, faculty and staff. We are committed to ensuring the coronavirus affects as few of the LC family and others as possible. The coronavirus situation has been a very fast-moving set of circumstances. This is a very fluid situation that has required examination and re-examination of the best course of action as public health officials release new information on an ongoing basis.

The College leadership, emergency management and campus health professionals have been working closely with public health officials and monitoring the situation diligently in order to determine how best to safeguard the health of students, faculty and staff against the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the quality and continuity of our students’ academic experience. After extremely careful consideration, the decision has been made to suspend classes next week through Friday, March 20, 2020, to transition to remote or other delivery methods for the duration of the spring semester.  All students areexpected to check Blackboard on or before Friday, March 20, 2020,for details from their professors for their remote learning plans.

Residential students are encouraged to vacate on-campus housing and return to their permanent residences, no later than noon on Wednesday, March 18. Students who need to remain on campus, such as international students, students with transportation limitations, students with clinical or internship obligations in the area, or students with technology limitations, should complete the form on this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3V2T7SC and contact the Office of Student Affairs. Every possible accommodation will be made to address students’ needs for residency, and for technical support for online classes. There will continue to be student services, including modified dining available on campus.

Students MUST take all their belongings with them when vacating the premises.

We understand that these restrictions will cause significant inconveniences for many people. We will work to address these issues sensitively in the days and weeks ahead.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Orlando W. Lewis
