Campus Safety

Establishing a Safe Campus


Elgin Community College is committed to student success and keeping everyone safe while on campus. Our mission continues even during this extraordinary time. As we strive to improve people’s lives through learning, your health and safety remain our top priority.

The college is working to bring you back to campus with a phased approach. ECC will continue to follow best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the Kane County Health Department (KCHD). As our knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 continue to evolve, our policies and ECC will update plans as appropriate and in compliance with state and local guidelines, including Gov. J. B. Pritzker’s Restore Illinois (five-phase) Plan.
