Compliance means providing proof of vaccination or submitting to weekly testing within the timeframe prescribed.
ECC will withhold Non-compliant employees from service until they comply with the safety requirements mandated by the State of Illinois. Furthermore, employees will be subject to the disciplinary process.
Elgin Community College shall exclude ECC students who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from the premises unless they comply with the testing requirements.
Elgin Community College students who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must undergo testing for COVID-19 until they establish that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Failure to abide by this directive violates the ECC Student Code of Conduct and the COVID Addendum.
We will copy faculty on an email sent to students who are not in compliance with the mandate. The email will inform students they are prohibited from returning to campus until they are in compliance.
No, if your classes are all remote AND your time conducting campus business is fleeting, you are not required to get the vaccine or participate in weekly testing. If you wish to substitute teach for a class on campus or accept any hybrid or face-to-face teaching assignments, the requirement will apply. However, if you are fully remote and plan to come on campus for activities, committee meetings or will be on campus for more than a "fleeting moment," the mandate will apply.
No, as the current Return to Campus policy requires employees to be on campus at least 80 percent of the time.
All enrolled Dual-credit program students must follow the mandate and are not eligible to be on our campus if not vaccinated or if they refuse the test. More specific information is forthcoming regarding this group of students. Learn more on the Students Under 18.
This mandate does not apply to visitors to campus, and there is no change in the current policy for visitors. Our campus is fully open. Everyone on campus must wear masks, and social distancing practices are enforced. The requirements of the mandate are for enrolled students and employees.
HR does not expect employees to enforce the mask mandate. If you have concerns about an individual who is purposefully defying the mask policy, you can notify your supervisor/HR and HR will follow up. Similarly, employees can contact John Long or Greg Robsinson about students who are not complying with the mask mandate.
