The safety and well-being of our students, employees and campus community is a top priority. Our guiding principles are to: follow guidance from federal, state and local health experts (Lakeland Smart); accept social responsibility for the safety of ourselves and others (Lakeland Safe); and adapt to change with empathy and creativity (Lakeland Strong).

Infectious Disease

Existing and emerging infectious diseases in Lake County and outside of Lake County that may impact the campus community will continually be monitored. 

Influenza Flu

CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. Take everyday preventative actions to help stop the spread of flu viruses. Avoid close contact with sick people, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, cover your coughs and sneezes, and wash your hands often with soap and water.

Lakeland Dental Clinic

The Lakeland Dental Hygiene Clinic is open to the public (adults and children) by advance appointment. The services are performed by a dental hygiene student under the supervision of licensed dentists and dental hygiene faculty. Services performed are limited to preventive treatment and are not intended to take the place of a dental examination.

Lakeland Health Clinic

Lakeland has partnered with Lake Health, now University Hospitals, to offer a Lakeland Health Clinic on campus for college employees.

Smoking Cessation

Lakeland is a smoke and tobacco free campus. This means smoking is prohibited on college property, including outdoor spaces. Free smoking cessation resources are available.

Mental Health and Wellness

Lakeland offers a variety of mental health and wellness resources for students and employees.
