Infectious Disease Reporting

Overview

Lone Star College is committed to maintain the health and safety of the College community. It is important that all students, faculty, staff, and community members work together to reduce the spread of infectious diseases by engaging in prevention, intervention and collaborative partnerships. No single entity can improve the health of all across our communities. By working together to adhere to the Collegeís health and safety protocols, we will create safe learning and working environments that support the well-being and growth of our students and employees.

Requirements

Reporting if you believe you have an infectious disease or have received a diagnosis helps control and prevent the spread of communicable diseases, and protect the health of LSC students, employees, and the community. The College works to do its part through our infectious disease reporting process, which includes submitting reports to local public health officials to help them identify, track, and mitigate suspected notifiable conditions throughout the state. The Texas Department of State Health Services maintains a list of infectious diseases that are considered notifiable conditions for reporting. You can access the current Texas DSHS Notifiable Conditions list which includes details on reporting requirements for Coronavirus (COVID-19). Lone Star College is required to report student and employee cases of the notifiable conditions to the Texas Department of State Health Services in a timely manner.

Reporting involves notifying those responsible for tracking your education and employment status, such as a Dean, an instructor, or a direct supervisor, and reporting to the designated office responsible for LSCís infectious disease reporting. Privately report illness or exposure details to LSC-ReportVirus@lonestar.edu or 832.246.0019.

We must maintain privacy and treat everyone with dignity and respect. Lone Star Collegeís reporting process emphasizes doing all we can to protect your medical privacy.
