COVID-19 Checklist and Procedures

Step 1 Review Checklist and Campus Procedures

Checklist Before Coming to Campus

  1. Before you come to campus the first time, you must take this one-time, short, online training and confirm on this website that you completed the training. The training will take approximately 5-10 minutes, not counting the links provided for additional information to those interested in learning more.
  2. Every day before you come to campus, ask yourself if you have any of these symptoms. Since your last day of work/class, or since your last visit to the college facility, have you experienced any of the following symptoms:
    • A new fever (100.4 F or higher) or a sense of having a fever?  
    • A new cough that you cannot attribute to another health condition?  
    • New shortness of breath that you cannot attribute to another health condition?  
    • A new sore throat that you cannot attribute to another health condition?  
    • New muscle aches that you cannot attribute to another health condition or that may have been caused by a specific activity, such as physical exercise?  
    • New respiratory symptoms, such as sore throat, runny nose/nasal congestion or sneezing, that you cannot attribute to another health condition?  
    • New chills or repeated shaking with chills that you cannot attribute to another health condition?
    • New loss of taste or smell that you cannot attribute to another health condition? 

What to Expect When You Come to Campus

  1. Wear a face covering when on campus. If you do not have one, one will be provided at the entrance door. 
    Note: Masks with valves are no allowed, as they protect you but not others around you.
  2. Bring your LWTech ID card. If you do not have an LWTech ID card, you will be asked to provide name, email, and cell phone number; you will be asked to get your LWTech ID card by going to Enrollment Services.
  3. Come to campus at least 30 minutes early so you are not late for class after waiting in line. 

Building Access Points

Enter campus through one of three monitored entrances closest to your final destination. All other exterior doors will be locked.

Daily Procedure

  1. Health check. You will be greeted by an LWTech employee who will ask you the same health questions you asked yourself, and take your temperature. If you have a fever of 100.4F or higher, or have any of the symptoms, you will not be able to attend class or work and will be asked to leave the campus.
  2. Scan your ID card. If you don’t have a card, your name, email, and cell number will be entered into the database. (If you don’t have an Student or Employee ID card, you will be directed to get an ID card at the Enrollment Services Desk.) 

If you need to exit the building for a break, you will need to re-enter the building through one of these three doors and be checked in again with a health screening, thermometer check, and ID scan. A map will be available before the quarter starts to help you navigate accessible entrances and pathways through campus.

On-Campus Activities
