Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, LWTech is offering a combination of online and on-campus classes for Winter quarter. This decision was made for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. The College is relying on guidance from the Office of the Governor, Washington State Public Health, King County Public Health, and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.
Follow these tips for caring for yourself and preventing the spread of illness
Temperatures above 100.4 F should be evaluated. Symptoms of concern include cough, sore throat, runny nose, rash, body aches, and fatigue. Stay home, rest, drink fluids.
Talk with your doctor and employer about guidelines for returning to campus.
Disinfect handles, keyboards, and shared devices, like phones, to prevent reinfecting yourself.
Never go to campus with these symptoms. Drink fluids, eat bland foods, and get rest.
Viral illnesses spread through droplets. Masks and hand-washing help stop the spread.
Let others know if you need a shift in responsibilities while you recover.
The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our priority. If we need to close the college we will do so. Everyone’s health and safety is our highest priority.
Unlike our local decision making with weather-related closures, our President will follow the advice and direction from King County Public Health, the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and state officials.
If we have suspended operations, you will be notified through our FlashAlert and Omnilert systems that send out calls, emails and text messages. Now is a great time to make sure that your notification settings are correct.
