COVID-19 and Our LASC Cougars Community

Please see general information and news updates regarding COVID-19, known as the coronavirus. Please scroll down to view links regarding Campus operations, health and wellness, academics, and communication.


The Campus continues to closely monitor the spread of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, as additional cases are confirmed in the United States and other countries. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a pandemic with more than 3,300 cases in the U.S. and growing clusters of the disease forcing many Americans to change their daily lives.

There have been significant developments in the ongoing spread of COVID-19: 

  • The World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, with more than 135,000 cases worldwide and more than 3,300 known cases in the United States. 
  • The Federal Government has issued new guidance discouraging any travel of U.S. citizens abroad; instructing all travelers from specified countries in Europe, including U.S. citizens, to self-quarantine for 14-days upon their arrival to the United States; and restricting travel of non-U.S. citizens to the United States from the Schengen Area of Europe
  • In Los Angeles, CA., Governor Gavin Newsom has declared both a state of emergency and a public health emergency and Los Angeles Department of Health has recommended the canceling of large non-essential gatherings.

The Campus will shift courses to online and remote instruction following Spring Break from March 23, 2020 through the remainder of the semester. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and update the campus community as circumstances evolve. For additional information, please visit the CDC website.
