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.


Triton College utilizes 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.

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.
