LCCC announces updates to COVID-19 plan

CHEYENNE, WYOMING – On Sunday, in light of the evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Laramie County Community College announced additional closures on the campus.

Closures for the following services at LCCC are effective immediately:

  • Children’s Discovery Center – closed through April 6
  • Dental Hygiene Clinic – closed through April 12
  • Recreation & Athletics Complex (RAC) – closed through May 15
  • Ludden Library – closed through May 15, though virtual services will still be available to students

Additionally, all events scheduled through May 15 (including life enrichment and business trainings) on the LCCC campus and its locations will be postponed or cancelled.

The college will reassess these closures in early May and communicate any new information to students and the community.

“We discourage the community from visiting campus, to minimize the spread and transmission of the disease,” LCCC President Dr. Joe Schaffer said. “Please call or email employees and establish virtual or conference call meetings when possible.”

A list of employees and their contact information can be found at lccc.wy.edu/directory/index.aspx.

These closures follow Friday’s announcement that the college has extended spring break for students until March 31. Classes are currently scheduled to resume on April 1, though in a primarily online format.
