Health Screen Checkpoints

Everyone coming to each campus will need to stop at the health screen checkpoint. You will need to answer a short questionnaire about your health in order to gain entry to campus. You can complete the Symptom Checker ahead of time and either keep the window up or take a screenshot to show the security staff.  

Beginning October 5, checkpoints will move to the main entries at each building. Checkpoints will be staffed by Security and work study students inside Main Building Door 1, Todd Center Main Entrance Door 1, Mendel Center Door 2 (by the Hanson Theatre Lobby), and at the Hanson Technology Center Main Entrance Door 1.

Contractors and vendors are required to have an appointment prior to coming on campus, in addition to completing the health screen questionnaire.   

No one will be allowed on campus who is experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms or has come into contact with someone with diagnosed or suspected COVID-19 in the past 14 days.  

Your Responsibilities on Campus

  • Keep each other safe.
  • You are required to wear masks while on campus.

Safety Measures

The safety of students, employees and visitors is our top priority at Lake Michigan College. We have been working to create new safety procedures across all aspects of the College.   

  • Markings on the floor will help designate where to wait at reception areas and remind us all how to space in hallways.
  • Clear physical barriers have been set in place at high transaction areas.
  • Stairs are identified as either “up” or “down” to eliminate cross traffic.
  • Elevators, meeting rooms and classrooms have signage to show how many people are allowed in order to keep social distancing.  
  • Hand sanitizer is located in high-traffic areas and at shared equipment, such as copy machines.  
  • We are increasing outside air ventilation rates and circulation, where possible.
  • Cleaning measures are increased with special attention to frequently touched surfaces, like door hardware, railings, and work surfaces. 
  • Designated locations in each building for eating and drinking.
  • The new spacious Learning Resource Center is set up to support socially distanced computer access, including the individual computers in new small study areas with sliding glass doors.
  • All LMC employees are required to complete additional COVID-19 training on the LMC Preparedness & Response Plan.
  • We have new procedures in place to manage situations that may arise, like someone becoming sick on campus.
