SAFETY & EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The College has been closely following the public health situation surrounding a novel strain of coronavirus, 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the safety and health of our students, faculty, administrators, and staff is our primary concern, we have assembled a team involving multiple College offices to monitor, plan, and respond to this rapidly evolving situation.
In addition to the information and links on this page, we will provide updates to the LIM College community via LIM email and other methods, as needed. All students, faculty, and staff should also make sure they are registered with the College’s Emergency Notification System.
