On Thursday, August 26, 2021, Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order 2021-20, COVID-19 Executive Order No. 87, which makes it necessary for all educators and staff working pre-K through college, college students, and health care workers to be vaccinated or have their first dose of a two-dose series or their single-dose vaccine by September 5, or undergo COVID testing at least once a week.
Additionally, masks are required for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals at all times when on our campus, in accordance with the executive order mandating masks indoors for ages two and above.
As a reminder, we also have SHIELD IL conducting COVID testing on-site, and we will continue to facilitate access to vaccines. Specific information about how students and employees will need to provide proof of vaccination, on-site vaccination clinics, and other compliance-related protocols will be finalized and shared as soon as possible.
Morton College is committed to mitigating the spread of this virus and keeping our students, employees, and community members safe. We know that vaccinations save lives, and everyone who is able to get vaccinated is encouraged to do so. Visit the MC COVID Information and Resource webpage for more information.
Thank you all again for your continuing flexibility and willingness to do what is necessary to keep our community safe!
