Mask Wearing Policy Update


LBCC regularly reassesses its actions to preserve the health and safety of all students, faculty, staff, and community members on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those actions have been in alignment with federal, state, and local agencies and informed by vaccination rates and downward trends in COVID-19 cases.

Here are the latest updates on wearing masks while on campus:

  1. LBCC will maintain existing indoor mask policy until end of term (June 8, 2022).
  2. Attendance for outdoor events/activities no longer will require proof of vaccination, testing, or mask wearing in alignment with public health orders. Masks will continue to be encouraged, but not required.
  3. In anticipation of the end of the Spring semester (June 8, 2022) and the lifting of restrictions, we will be ending the use of door monitors at the conclusion of the term.
  4. In alignment with the public health orders, make mask-wearing outside optional for the Child Development Centers.

As a reminder, the current mask wearing requirements are:

  • Wearing masks is optional in many campus settings for fully vaccinated individuals.
  • Exceptions to this indoor mask-optional policy include:
  1. Unvaccinated person must continue to wear masks in all indoor settings
  2. All persons, vaccinated and unvaccinated, must wear masks in the following indoor settings:
    1. Classrooms
    2. Interior hallways and student queue areas
    3. Where students receive one-on-one in-person services
    4. Meeting rooms that don’t allow for six-foot distancing or have a barrier separating individuals
    5. Shared transportation
  3. All persons, vaccinated and unvaccinated, must wear masks indoors in the Child Development Center and Student Health Center.

LBCC remains a safe environment for the entire campus community. Through our continued actions, we will preserve that safe environment while allowing for allowable flexibility and personal choice.

Thank you for taking the time to be informed of our latest guidelines on masks. We will continue to work together to keep our students, employees and loved ones safe during this global pandemic.
