These cases are the number of people who have tested
positive and are in isolation either on campus or off-campus.
Self-isolation was required for students who come to
campus from affected countries. They were required to come and present the
results of a negative test and quarantine for 14 days.
Self-isolation also happens for those who test
positive in order to separate them from people who are not sick. Such isolation
happens with one person per room.
Self- isolation also would be required to separate and
restrict the movement of those who may have been exposed to see if they become
Please note that only those who fit one (or more) of
the following statements during in-person learning are considered to be
“exposed” and need to self-isolate:
- People that have been living in the same
rooms with confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days.
- People that had direct physical contact with
a COVID-19 case (e.g. shaking hands, hugging, kissing) in the last 14 days.
- People that have had unprotected direct
contact (no mask on either party) with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case
(e.g. being coughed on, touching used paper tissues with a bare hand) in the
last 14 days.
- People having had contact, within 2-meters,
with a COVID-19 case with at least one party not wearing a mask and/or for more
than 15 minutes in the last 14 days.
- People who have been in a closed environment
(e.g. classroom, meeting room, etc.) with a COVID-19 case for 15 minutes or
more and at a distance of less than 2 meters in the last 14 days.
When a positive COVID-19 case is isolated and all
those who had direct exposure are also isolated.
When a positive COVID-19 case is made known to LCC
officials and there is incomplete information of all interactions in the last
14 days with that positive case.
- Potentially Uncontained Case: the
designation given to the positive COVID-19 case while contact tracing is
happening within 24-hours of being notified as an institution.
- Officially Uncontained Case:
the designation given to the positive COVID-19 case if, after 24-hours, the
contacts are unable to be traced and isolated. An officially uncontained case
will raise the campus alert level to ‘Alert Level Red.’
