On a day when we remember those we’ve lost to anti-transgender violence, we also bear witness to more extreme violence and grieve the lives lost in Colorado Springs last night.
Fort Lewis College will no longer require Green Health Passes in classrooms and other indoor spaces beginning May 16.
Sexual assault is horrific; it is particularly horrific when it happens on our campus, disrupting lives and distorting our sense of safety in the place we live, work, and learn. I’ve met with some of the impacted students in recent days, and with their input, I wanted to now communicate with the broader FLC community about this issue.
FLC values and cares about a sense of belonging and connection. Given the diminishing threat posed by the current variant and our interest in creating the best possible student experience, masks will be optional indoors, beginning March 7, 2022.
Way to stay safe and strong, Skyhawks! Our COVID mitigation strategies are paying off, which allows us to reevaluate and look to return to an even more engaging campus environment.
As you’ve seen, COVID-19 and the Omicron variant continue to surge across the country, and Durango is no exception. We have been preparing over the break and FLC is ready to welcome you back to a safe, in-person experience.
Because of the rapid spread of the Omicron variant in recent weeks, we are delaying the start of the semester to Monday, January 24 and a COVID booster shot is required for all students, faculty, and staff once you are eligible to receive one.
