Student COVID-19 Protocol

If a student is exposed to someone infected with COVID-19, they must take the following steps:

1 . Students should mask as soon as they find out they were exposed. They should continue masking for 10 days.
2 . If a student develops symptoms, they should isolate immediately and get tested.
3 . A student should test on day 6 after exposure, even if they do not develop symptoms.

If students have received positive COVID-19 test results, they must take the following steps:

1 . Report positive test results to instructors and work with them to outline a plan for school work completion.
2 . Report positive test results to their program head to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

LDCC also encourages those who have positive COVID-19 test results to contact a healthcare provider.

To prevent the the spread of COVID-19, students can return to campus after meeting the following criteria:

1 . If symptomatic, students may return to campus at least 5 days since the symptoms first appeared. For example, you can return on day 6 if you do not have a fever on day 5.
2 . If asymptomatic but tested positive, students may return to campus 5 days from the time the test sample was collected.
3 . If students have no fever (temperature less than 100.4) for a minimum of 24 hours without the use of any fever-reduing medicines like aspirin, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen.
4 . If students have improved respiratory conditions.
5 . If students exhibit no other symptoms of COVID-19.
6 . After day five and a student can return, if they wear a mask or other covering for their nose and mouth through to day 10.


Washing your hands multiple times a day will help protect you from germs. Always wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. 


Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. If you don't have access to a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow crease. Make sure to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.


If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub to kill germs on your hands. Each LDCC campus offers hand sanitizer stations in interior spaces.
