Coronavirus Information

There will be no more face-to-face classes through the end of the semester. Virtual classes will continue through the end of the semester, with traditional face-to-face instruction classes not being held until conditions allow for them and restrictions are lifted.

A number of student services, including advisement and tutoring, will be available online to Luna students. Students are advised to call or e-mail offices as needed; faculty and staff will be checking for and returning calls and messages remotely. A full staff directory is available at https://www.luna.edu/directory.

Luna has closed its campuses to students and the public until further notice. Access to the main campus will be restricted to employees deemed critical for campus operation until further notice.

Luna Community College joins with other entities across the state in monitoring the ongoing situation. Luna Community College will issue further communications as warranted with regard to coronavirus and other public health concerns.

In the meantime, individuals are recommended to protect themselves and others by taking the following actions:

• Wash your hands frequently. Use of soap and water is preferable, with washing taking at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
• Stay home when you are sick
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Be prepared if your child’s school or childcare facility is temporarily dismissed or for potential changes at your workplace
• Avoid sharing personal items

Those age 60 and older and those with severe chronic conditions (such as compromised immune system, heart disease, diabetes, lung diseases) are advised to take special precautions to avoid contact with the virus.

Those at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 are advised to:

• Stock up on essential supplies as needed
• Take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others
• When you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact and wash your hands often
• Avoid crowds as much as possible
• Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel
• In the event of COVID-19 outbreaks in your community, stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed
