Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Thank you for your Oct. 1 editorial (“Students need clarity on COVID information”) on the need for the University to provide clarity to students on information related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Keeping the university community as safe as possible is our top priority. For that reason, we would like to clarify some misinformation contained in the editorial.

Nearly all of the information the editorial claims is unavailable is, in fact, accessible through the COVID-19 information portal at laverne.edu/coronavirus.

This includes a dashboard of positive cases across all campuses; instructions on what to do if a student is sick, experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or has been exposed; details on the University’s vaccination policy; resources for getting vaccinated; access to the comprehensive La Verne Safe Return plan, and more.

A link to the COVID-19 information portal is available at the top of every page on the University of La Verne website.

We encourage all members of the University community to visit the site frequently and to follow all COVID-19 safety guidelines. That includes complying with the vaccination policy, staying home when sick, wearing a mask indoors, and practicing physical distancing.

Thank you, Campus Times, for helping to make this information more broadly available.
