COVID-19 Communications

Dear Faculty & Staff,

Kishwaukee College continues to work towards compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order that requires all employees with an on-campus assignment or teaching in-person to have either a COVID-19 vaccine OR proof of weekly testing to be on campus.

While the mandate goes into effect September 19, until Kish has established and implemented a process to provide weekly onsite COVID-19 testing, we will not be requiring weekly testing.

All employees should continue following current COVID-19 protocols and mask guidelines. We will provide additional information regarding Kish onsite testing as we finalize our procedures.

We understand this is a challenging time. Thank you for all you are doing to help us navigate COVID-19, and continue to focus on our organizational mission of providing a quality education.

If you have additional question, please review the frequently asked questions available on the employee COVID-19 FAQ webpage, or email kishhr@kish.edu.

Laurie Borowicz, Ed.D
President
