Updated Covid-19 Guidance

As of July 13, 2022, Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order has been amended. Higher education personnel and students who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer require weekly surveillance testing. Furthermore, faculty, students and staff no longer must submit proof of vaccination.

As of August 11, 2022, the CDC updated the following:

  • Regardless of your vaccination status, one no longer needs to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19. Instead, the CDC recommends to wear a high-quality mask for 10 days.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate for 5 days. End isolation after day 5 and wear a mask around others through day 10. 
  • The CDC now recommends case investigation and contact tracing only in health care settings and certain high-risk congregate settings.
  • The CDC de-emphasized the 6-feet distance rule and continues to emphasize the improvement of ventilation.


Masking is optional on the College campus.
