Following CDC and IDPH guidelines, Lincoln College is planning to bring students back to campus next month.
System President, Dr. David Gehrlach indicates the Illinois Board of Higher Education also has guidance in place and they will require students to wear masks. He explains they are trying to be as accomodating as possible with their staff on how they feel about a return to campus.
Positive cases among the student body and even staff could become tricky but Dr. Gehrlach indicates there are guidelines to follow. He compares their plans for students to their plans for the flu season.
Students deserve the opportunity of higher education and Dr. Gehrlach hopes those with students that are set to go back to class will educate themselves on the virus.
Dr. Gehrlach invites anyone who wants to learn more about Lincoln College to put their masks on and come over to meet their staff and take a tour of the campus. You can also visit lincolncollege.edu.
