COVID-19 Guidelines

The health and well-being of our college community is a top priority. This page provides a variety of protocols and best practices to help guide a healthy and safe semester.

Waubonsee students are NOT required to show proof of vaccination or be tested regularly. However, the Illinois Department of Public Health continues to promote vaccines and boosters as they can significantly reduce the severity of COVID should you be infected. Also, students in health care programs may be required to be vaccinated, per hospital/clinical site regulations.


Staying Home When Sick

Stay home/away from campus if you’re feeling sick. Students should work with their instructors to deal with any class absences. Employees should work with their supervisor.

If you test positive for COVID, you no longer have to report it to the college. However, we do recommend you follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance on what to do to take care of yourself and others.


Masks Are Encouraged But Not Required

High-quality masks are available at buildings’ primary entrance(s). Please be respectful of all those who choose to wear them. 

Practicing Good Hygiene Habits

Remember to wash your hands often, and cover your mouth when coughing/sneezing.
