In response to the State of Illinois Executive Order 2021-20, all higher education students and staff must have proof of full vaccination or undergo weekly testing. Here are some FAQs to support you in meeting this requirement. If you have other questions, please email email@example.com.
Q. When do I need to get vaccinated by?
As required by the State of Illinois Executive Order 2021-20, individuals who are fully vaccinated do not need to undergo weekly testing. An individual is “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two-dose series of a vaccine, or two weeks after receiving a single dose vaccine.
If you do not provide proof of full vaccination, you must be tested for COVID-19 once a week. Students who are not vaccinated and do not undergo weekly testing are not permitted on campus beginning November 1.
