IMYM COVID-19 Safety Measures for Fort Lewis College - June 2024

We are now in our fourth year of experience with the COVID virus, and we know it is here to stay, along with other infectious diseases and health conditions we are concerned about. The case numbers are continuing to drop, and we will continue to monitor this as we move toward our gathering. We as a community love, care about and value each other, and want our time together to reflect these values. Mindful there are those whose immune systems are weaker than others, some precautions are in order. We believe that we are all able to make good choices regarding indoor masking and social distancing that will protect each of us, our children, families, and friends, as well as all members of our IMYM family/community.  As this advisory was written in March, local activity of COVID transmission can’t be predicted. We suggest the following:

  • Check This link to a US Covid Tracker provided by CovidActNow to find updated information about rates by county.

  • Take a COVID test before arriving in Durango, and at any time that you feel ill.

  • Bring rapid tests with you; some may be available at the gathering.

  • If you feel sick at the gathering, isolate yourself from others and take a rapid test; if you test positive, please isolate to protect others (until you have a negative rapid test). Medical volunteers will be available to answer questions about symptoms and care.

  • Masking indoors will be on an optional basis. However, if any group meeting indoors wishes to make masking mandatory, all members of the group are asked to comply with the wishes of others. Use a quality, well-fitting mask. We recommend use of the N95, KN95, or KF94 masks.

  • Please remember to wash your hands and/or use sanitizers. Like the common cold and influenza, droplet transmission occurs via contaminated hands.

  • Stay safe, stay healthy, and have fun!

Emergency Preparedness at Fort Lewis College

Fort Lewis College has established an Emergency Response Plan to deal with various crises which might threaten the resources of the College, the physical safety of its students, staff, faculty and the general public.

Minor incidents will be handled completely by Campus resources or designated responders. In the event of a more severe emergency, the campus community will be notified of the response required.
