Return to Campus
Make sure you're feeling well before coming to campus. If you are feeling sick, please stay home. The health, safety and well-being of our community are our top priority.
Fall 2022 Semester COVID-19 Update:
Experiencing COVID-19 symptoms?
- Do not come to campus. Follow the CDC's quarantine guidelines, which currently state individuals should stay home for at least five days upon testing positive for COVID-19, followed by five more days of wearing a mask around others.
- There is no longer a COVID reporting form. Students should work with their instructors to navigate any class absences as they would other illnesses. Positive cases will be handled between the employee and supervisor.
Vaccination: Harper does not have a COVID-19 vaccine requirement (Health Careers students should check with their faculty about any program-specific requirements). The governor's executive order requiring students and employees be fully vaccinated or test weekly for COVID-19 has expired. The college strongly encourages everyone who is able to get vaccinated and boosted.
Masks: Masks are welcome and recommended, but not required. See campus mask guidelines.
COVID-19 testing: Testing is not required to come to campus, and the college no longer provides on-campus testing. The NCH Outpatient Care Center at Harper College offers COVID-19 testing; please check with NCH on any insurance requirements. In addition, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has resources for finding low- or no-cost testing in the area.
