LSCO loses one of its own to COVID-19

PRESS RELEASE — Lamar State College Orange is mourning the death of a beloved faculty member related to complications from COVID-19. The faculty member had not been on campus for a number of weeks; classes have not been held on campus since March 13, so students were not at risk of exposure at any time. Two employees who had been in contact with the affected faculty member self-monitored for 14-days from the date of exposure as a precaution, but did not develop attributable symptoms. The areas where the faculty member worked have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. The faculty member had been hospitalized and was not an Orange County resident. Needless to say, the LSCO family is devastated at the loss of this caring faculty member who was so committed to educating others.
