Bluejays Unite!

We have returned to in-person, campus-based learning and living, plus a full array of on-campus courses and activities.

To keep our community safe and successful, please follow the steps outlined below to help us all navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Spring Term Guidelines

  1. Get vaccinated or get your booster. Once you have received a) your first dose, b) your second dose, and/or c) your booster shot, please upload your COVID-19 vaccine card.
  2. Masks are now optional. However, Elmhurst University encourages students, faculty, and staff to wear masks if that makes them more comfortable. Our values of community and responsibility require that we treat each other with grace, respect, and civility, whether or not someone chooses to wear a mask.
  3. If you have a sore throat or any other symptoms associated with the Omicron variant (fever, chills, headache, fatigue, etc.) get a COVID-19 test immediately. Stay home and isolate for five days if the result comes back positive. Do not attend classes in person.
  4. Wash your hands thoroughly and often on a daily basis. Use hand sanitizer whenever possible.
  5. If you test positive for COVID-19, please complete the Self-Reporting Form.
  6. Make every effort to go home to isolate if you live within a reasonable distance. If it is not possible to isolate at home, we will work with you to move to an isolation room on campus.
  7. Maintain as much social distancing as possible (3 feet is an acceptable distance).
  8. If you are not vaccinated (which means you have an approved exemption), you must test weekly on campus until further notice. The testing schedule is provided in the weekly COVID-19 Task Force Update email.
