The health and safety of students, faculty and staff are of the utmost importance. Below you will find information, links and resources that describe Moraine Valley's practices, protocols and expectations for minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on the campus community.

Safe Return Procedures

The college has drafted a Safe Return document with practices and procedures to ensure coordinated, department-to-department processes for appropriate social distancing, use of personal protective equipment, reporting of COVID-19, and more. This a working document and will be updated to reflect changes in directives and introduce new recommended practices as they become available.

  • Masks

    Masks are required indoors. Masks are not required outdoors, but they are recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated in crowded outdoor settings or during outdoor activities that involve sustained close contact.

  • Campus Access

    Campus is open, but each person coming to campus is required to complete a self-screening using the Campus Clear app (Apple App Store or Google Play) or website. If the screening results in a "Good to Go" message, you are permitted to come onto campus and must present that message for access to campus buildings, offices, classrooms, etc.

If I believe I have COVID-19 or have had known contact with someone with COVID-19, what should I do? 

Answer: Follow the guidance on the college's Student Flowchart Protocol for COVID-19 Reporting and Return to Campus. Do not come to campus.

How do I access the campus, classrooms or services?

Answer: Access to campus requires each person coming to campus to complete a self-screening using the Campus Clear app (Apple App Store or Google Play) or website. If the screening results in a "Good to Go" message, you are permitted to come onto campus and must present that message for access to campus buildings, offices, classrooms, etc. Please see the respective department's webpage for more detail.

Will I be required to wear a mask/face covering and keep social distance while on campus?

Answer: Yes. Everyone is required to wear a mask indoors and maintain a six-foot distance while on campus. Instructors will have a very limited supply of masks for any student who does not have one when they arrive for class. Individuals who fail to maintain appropriate distancing or fail to wear an appropriate face covering may be asked to leave the campus and could face disciplinary action.

Is the college tracking confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus?

Answer: Yes. Following reporting procedures from the Illinois Community College Board, Moraine Valley is recording the number of confirmed cases for individuals who have recently been on campus. That information is as follows:

What measures is the college taking to clean common surfaces?

Cleaning staff will clean classroom surfaces between sessions, and the night crew will thoroughly clean with appropriate and effective disinfectant. Restrooms will be monitored and cleaned throughout the day.

How many students will be in the classroom with me?

Answer: The college currently is maintaining smaller class sizes to allow for distancing within the classroom.

How will entering and exiting the classroom take place?

Answer: Please follow the directions provided by your instructor. The college recognizes that classroom entrances, some classroom spaces, hallways, and restrooms may result in close contact with others. Please use your best judgment to maintain appropriate social distancing at these locations.

How do I get my books and supplies?
