COVID increase in community causes Lyon to adjust policies

Lyon College is limiting the number of spectators for all on-campus competition due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in Independence County and the high transmission rate of the omicron variant. The College will review its COVID status at the end of the week to determine if the below policies, as well as additional, stricter policies, need to be implemented.

Effective Jan. 18, the spectator policy for all on-campus competition is limited to student-athletes’ immediate family members only. Each student-athlete can have two family members present.

Competition is closed to the public and campus members.

Additionally, Patterson Dining Hall in Edwards Commons, Salty Dog and the Lyon Den will not be available for in-person dining. All meals are exclusively take-out only. Masks are required in all campus buildings, including Edwards Commons. Campus members must be masked in order to receive a take-out meal.

All faculty and instructional staff have been given the option to adjust their courses to limit exposure. This includes the potential for courses going virtual for this week. Instructors will contact their students if there have been any changes to instructional plans.
