Thank you for doing your part to keep our campuses safe. Based on our data, we have had less than 1% of our campus community test positive for COVID-19 since the beginning of the semester.

Lake and LaPorte counties’ community transmission remains quite high, proving that our mitigation procedures are highly effective.

Masking works, and we appreciate everyone’s adherence to the indoor masking policy to keep our positivity rates low. The single best way to protect you and your family from COVID-19 is by getting vaccinated.

  • Asking a COVID-19 related question
  • Expressing a concern about a COVID-19 protocol not being followed on campus
  • Providing feedback about a COVID-19 response
  • Alerting the task force about the need for additional signage concerning protocols
  • Communicating you have been exposed or possibly exposed to COVID-19
