LVC’s Division of Marketing & Communications, led by the chief communications officer, coordinates COVID-19-related communications to students and their families, faculty, staff, and the College’s board of trustees. The plan includes email updates from campus leadership as needed, updates in The Valley Weekly employee and Updates from the Valley student e-newsletters, virtual town halls, social media posts, and the LVC Forward blog. The LVC Forward blog catalogs communications related to COVID-19 and return-to-campus information and allows users to search by topic area or keyword. The home page of www.lvc.edu includes an alert linking and a callout linking to the blog. The alert features important return-to-campus calls to action or other emergency communications as needed.
If there is an emergency, an alert will be issued to employees and students via email and text through the College’s emergency alert system (Omnilert) and posted to the LVC website and social media.
Educational messaging encouraging hygiene, mask-wearing, and physical distancing will be posted on social media and featured on digital and print signage across campus.
Community members with questions can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the COVID-19 hotline at 717-867-6555. Multiple staff members in student affairs, marketing and communications, and information technology monitor these channels.
