Online Health Screening for On-Campus Employees

Notice

Students and employees who are approved to come to campus during the closure must complete the online health screening before arriving on campus each day.

For Essential Lab Students

  1. Open your email or text message on the morning you will be on campus (not the day before) to click on the Viking Health Screening link. Or on your cell phone or computer, open LBCC.edu.  Move your cursor over “Quick Links” on the top navigation bar, and click on “Viking Health Screening” to access the quick survey.
  2. If you pass the daily health screening, you will receive a date-stamped certification.  Snap a screenshot, print it out, or have it on your mobile device.  (If you do not pass the daily health screening, do not come to Campus. Promptly call Student Health Services at 562-938-4210.)
  3. Bring your date-stamped certification to the Health Screening Station on Campus and have your temperature taken. (We urge you to show your date-stamped certification on your mobile phone, tablet, or laptop, but we will also accept a printout.) You will get a sticker.
  4. Show the date-stamped certification and sticker when you enter your classroom.
What are Essential Labs?

The City of Long Beach Safer-at-Home Health Order allows LBCC to hold on-campus classes only to provide training in fields designated as “Essential Businesses.”  The Fall 2020 schedule is primarily online classes with only essential lab classes meeting face-to-face. Essential labs are in the CTE, Trades, and Health Science areas only. Please review the class notes for details. Some online classes have scheduled meeting locations listed in the schedule. The areas that have essential labs are:

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Computer and Office Studies
  • Culinary Arts
  • Diagnostic Medical Imaging
  • Electrical
  • EMT
  • Horticulture
  • Medical Assist and Integration
  • Metal-Fab/Welding
  • Nutrition
  • Vocational and Registered Nursing

As of October 5, 2020, online health screening has replaced the paper form at the Health Screening Stations.  Students will continue to receive e-mails and text messages every morning they have a class scheduled on Campus.  For instance, if their class meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, they will receive an e-mail and text on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings with the link to complete the health screening.

Just a reminder, students who test positive for COVID-19; or are likely to have COVID-19; or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or is likely to have COVID-19, cannot come to Campus and should promptly call Student Health Services for assistance with medical concerns or mental health at 562-938-4210.

For Employees

  1. On your cell phone or computer, open LBCC.edu on the morning of the day you will be on campus (not the day before).  Move your cursor over “Quick Links” on the top navigation bar, and click on “Viking Health Screening” to access the quick survey.
  2. If you pass the daily health screening, you will receive a date-stamped certification.  Snap a screenshot, print it out, or have it on your mobile device.  (If you do not pass the daily health screening, do not come to Campus.)
  3. Be prepared to show the date-stamped certification when you are on Campus if requested. 

Employees who test positive for COVID-19; have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, are likely to have COVID-19; or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or is likely to have COVID-19, cannot come to Campus and should promptly call Human Resources at 562-938-5250 or e-mail COVID-HRhelp@lbcc.edu  for assistance.  After contacting HR, employees should contact their supervisor.

Just a reminder, LBCC remains closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  To protect the safety of everyone, only authorized individuals are allowed to be on campus during the closure.  If employees have an urgent need to access campus and have not been authorized via the weekly Essential Personnel List, they must e-mail their immediate supervisor to request access at least 48 business hours in advance, clearly explaining the emergency.  If approved, their request will be scheduled and recorded on the Essential Personnel List.

For Vendors and Approved Campus Guests

LBCC is developing the process for vendors and other approved campus guests to complete the online health screening.  More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
