LWTech is following Governor Jay Inslee's updated the requirements for higher education. The most relevant proclamations are Proclamation 12.5 and Proclamation 12-14.1. Based on these proclamations, LWTech, like all other public colleges in King County, will be tracking the vaccination status of all enrolled students who come to campus.
Per the Governor’s guidance, LWTech’s status as a vaccinated campus. LWTech will now require vaccines for faculty, staff, and students starting Fall quarter.
For latest updates visit the LWTech Coronavirus Information and Resources page.
If you plan to come to campus for any reason (attending classes or accessing other services), you must use the link below in order to attest to your vaccination status.
When you go to the link you have the options of:
If you attest to a medical exemption, a college employee will send you a form that must be filled out by your healthcare provider. Please return the form promptly so it can be reviewed as part of your exemption request. Approval or denial will be communicated in writing to your student email address.
If you attest a sincerely held religious belief has led to your exemption, a college employee will review your request and approval or denial will be communicated in writing to your student email address.
After completing the Self Attestation step above, please contact Human Resources to begin the interactive process. Keep in mind that medical/religious exemptions and accommodations are two separate things. If an exemption is approved, you will engage in an interactive process with Human Resources and your Supervisor about whether an effective reasonable accommodation exists to allow you to perform the essential functions of your job. We are awaiting further guidance on accommodations and will keep you informed of the updates.
The college requires masks to be worn indoors at all times for all students, employees, and guests.
Please note, vaccination status will not change the requirement to wear masks inside any building at LWTech.
If you are a student employee at the college or a student in the dental hygiene program, you must take additional steps. Please contact your supervisor for more information.
These requirements are subject to change based on federal, state, or municipal requirements; directive by the department of public health; or college policy.
