Mask Guidelines

Everyone coming to Harper College’s campus must wear a face mask when they are inside buildings. (Note: Effective Aug. 16, masks will be optional indoors for fully vaccinated individuals.) Masks are not required outdoors on campus. The college encourages those who are not vaccinated to continue wearing a mask outdoors when social distancing is not possible. We wear masks to protect others. Working together, we can ensure a safe environment for all.

Disposable masks are available in most offices on campus.

How to Properly Wear a Face Mask

  • Masks should be worn over nose, mouth and chin. 
  • Neck gaiters and valved masks are not allowed.

Special Circumstances

  • Employees may take off their masks if they are in their office and are alone.
  • Anyone coming to campus must wear a mask, unless they have a medical reason or disability that prevents them from doing so. Students seeking an accommodation must contact the dean of students prior to coming to campus:
