International and Out-of-State Students ARE Eligible for COVID Vaccine in Phase 1B

All LVC students are eligible for Phase 1B vaccination beginning April 5. Additional information and vaccination providers can be found at COVID-19 Vaccine (pa.gov). Please let the College know you’ve been vaccinated here, once completed.

Out-of-State Travel Order Rescinded

As of March 1, visitors to PA from out-of-state no longer need to provide negative COVID-19 test results or quarantine for 14 days. This means LVC employees who travel out-of-state no longer need to test or quarantine upon return. Please continue to mask up, social distance, avoid gatherings, and wash your hands often. See more.
