Our students’ well-being is our top priority.
As you may be aware, cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Canada. LCC will continue to post any COVID-19 updates from provincial and federal authorities as they are announced. Our top priority is our students’ safety. We are confident that we can provide alternative study options if necessary. We encourage students to stay informed, remain calm and practice prevention whenever they can.
Federal and provincial governments are warning against all international travel in order to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Anyone who travels outside Canada (including the United States) will need to stay away from school or work for 14 days upon return. They have also urged us to avoid all non-essential international travel (including the United States).
Students who have recently arrived to Canada, please do not come to school immediately. Contact the school by phone or email to arrange alternative study options.
Please read the following tips on how to stay healthy and informed.
All students, please ensure that you have valid health insurance. Anyone living in BC for six months or longer is required by law to enroll in MSP (Medical Services Plan).
How to stay healthy:
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
