Lyon reopens on-campus competitions to public

Lyon College has reopened athletic competitions to the campus community and the public.

Due to the decline in COVID-19 cases on campus and in the local community, Lyon has made several updates to its spring 2022 COVID policies. The College will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its variants and will adapt COVID policies as needed. 

Athletic Policy

The decrease in cases has enabled Lyon to reopen both outdoor and indoor competition to the campus community and the public. Masks are strongly recommended when visitors are unable to social distance. Concessions will be available again.

Mask Policy

Wearing a mask is no longer required outside of classrooms, studios, and labs. Masks are still required in instructional and meeting spaces inside academic buildings. All students, faculty, and staff have not only a social responsibility but also a personal responsibility to themselves and their colleagues and classmates. The College asks that all community members continue to be respectful of one another and of their decision to wear or not wear a mask. The College will provide N-95 and KN95 masks– which protect the person wearing the mask and those around them– to any faculty, staff or student that requests them. Please contact the COVID Coordinator at covid.coordinator@lyon.edu to request these masks.

Isolation Policy

The College’s isolation policy has also changed. Isolation has decreased from 10 days to 7 days. Those who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate for 7 days.

Dining Policy

Patterson Dining Hall will continue to have in-person dining with a limited capacity of 50 percent. The take-out option will still be available. Once the dining hall reaches capacity, patrons will have a take-out option only. The Salty Dog and the Lyon Den will be open with a limited capacity. 

Academic Policies

In-person instruction will continue. All students, faculty, and staff are required to properly wear a mask over their nose and mouth in instructional and meeting spaces inside academic buildings.

Senior leadership will continue to meet regularly to review the College’s COVID status and adjust policies as needed. Safely continuing in-person learning while protecting the Lyon Community continues to be a top priority.

All information regarding testing and case numbers on campus is available in the COVID-19 Activity Dashboard on https://www.lyon.edu/coronavirus.
