LBCC Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Website
LBCC has established a Coronavirus (COVID-19) website for updates pertaining to students, faculty and staff. Please also refer to this link for resources and updates.
Face Coverings Required
Anyone who comes to campus during the closure should wear a cloth face covering, including faculty or staff who have received authorization to pick up equipment or files from their office and students picking up Chromebooks, Hot Spots, other technology equipment, or items from the Viking Vault. The Los Angeles County Department of Health has issued the following guidance: “Members of the general public should use a clean face covering anytime they will be in contact with other people who are not household members in public or private spaces.” The City of Long Beach Health Department has issued a revised order (4/10/20) requiring that everyone wear a face covering when visiting an essential business, which includes LBCC. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the LA County Department of Health, and the City of Long Beach for more information. The CDC also has posted this video showing how to make an easy, no-sew face covering.
