We continue to encourage students and employees to vaccinate against COVID-19 and test when experiencing symptoms.
On July 12, 2022, Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order 2022-16, which rescinded the requirement that higher education employees and students be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing in order to access the university/college premises.
MANDATORY WEEKLY TESTING concluded July 13, 2022 for all students and employees who did not submit documentation of full vaccination.
