On August 26, 2021, Governor Pritzker announced additional mitigations for higher education institutions throughout Illinois, including mask-wearing for all individuals in all indoor settings. Additionally, due to the high amount of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, the following individuals must get vaccinated:

  • All healthcare workers, including workers at public and private nursing homes.
  • All teachers and staff at Pre-K-through Grade 12 schools; and
  • All personnel and students (attending classes in-person) at higher education institutions (this includes non-credit community education students).

Therefore, effective September 19, 2021, all community education course participants will be required to show their vaccination card or provide a COVID-19 test result conducted within the last seven days to attend courses in person at the Kaskaskia College main campus or any of the education centers.
