Luna has implemented a host of measures to help ensure the health and safety of students, employees and the general public in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moving courses online and having staff work remotely has taken place since mid-March, when the college closed its campus grounds to all but a limited crew of employees.
The college’s facilities team has worked diligently in recent weeks to disinfect and sanitize the campus as more employees have been allowed to return to campus to some extent. Stringent social distancing rules, including mandatory use of face masks in public spaces and outside of closed office spaces, have been implemented.
Other preventative measures, such as regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer, continue to be encouraged.
Access to campus facilities continues to be limited, in an effort to reduce foot traffic and allow for proper social distancing.
Any changes to the mode of course delivery or campus access will be mindful of state mandates and guidelines.
COVID-19 has impacted colleges and universities across the nation and beyond since the first cases were reported this past winter. Luna has fared well in transitioning many of its classes and services to remote delivery since midway through the spring 2020 semester.
