Return to Campus

As members of our community gradually return to campus, Triton College continues to implement the staged approach in the Campus Plan. As we transition through various stages of the plan, please note that most academic and student support services will continue remotely until further notice.

As part of the Campus Plan, we are sharing information about expectations and procedures to keep our campus clean and our students, staff, and community members safe.

Please see the frequently asked questions (FAQs) below for more information. The list of questions and corresponding answers will change based on the state of public health and as Illinois leaders provide new guidance.

On-Campus Responsibilities

Face Coverings

All persons on campus must wear a mask upon entering buildings, while walking through any public or shared spaces, while using shared equipment and technology (such as a printer), and if you encounter others on campus.

Disposable masks for guests are available at the greeter station at the B building entrance. Triton will provide two (2) face coverings per employee, which can be picked up in the Bursar’s Office in B Building. Please make sure all Triton-issued and homemade masks are properly washed and disinfected on a regular basis.

Everyone entering buildings on Triton’s campus is expected to wear a mask.

Self-Certification 

Triton College is implementing CampusClear, a free mobile app that allows students, faculty, and staff on campus to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms.

All employees, students, and campus visitors are required to self-certify each day within two (2) hours prior to starting their arrival on campus.

Triton’s self-certify form will be discontinued after August 17.

 

Regular Hand Washing

To reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19, it is important to follow good hygiene protocol, including regular hand washing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends:

  • washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
  • avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands; and
  • avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Additionally, automatic hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout campus.
