COVID-19 Vaccination Guidelines

All employees and students are required to disclose their vaccination status (or submit a valid medical or religious exemption) to the university. All unvaccinated employees, including those with an approved medical or religious exemption, and those who are partially vaccinated, are required to obtain a COVID-19 saliva test on-campus twice per 7-day period, 48 or more hours apart with negative test results, and to comply with other mitigation measures. The University of Illinois System is requiring a COVID-19 booster shot for all students, faculty and staff once you are eligible.
