Lamar State College Port Arthur statement on COVID-19 practices on campus
Last updated 3/4/2021 at 3:09pm
On March 2, 2021, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed Executive Order GA 34 that removes the face covering mandate and capacity restrictions for businesses and other establishments effective March 10, 2021.
The Executive Order states, “Public schools may operate as provided by, and under the minimum standard health protocols found in guidance issued by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Private schools and institutions of higher education are encouraged to establish similar standards.” At this time, the latest TEA guidelines require face coverings and other safety protocols in public schools. Lamar State College Port Arthur will, therefore, continue our current requirements to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing.
The well-being of LSCPA’s students, faculty and staff remains the highest priority. The campus will continue its cleaning, sanitizing, social distancing, contact tracing protocols in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. As COVID conditions change, we will adjust our practices.
