The campus is starting to come alive, and we couldn't be more excited!
While we closely monitor the current spread of COVID-19 and its potential impact, we ask all of you to remain vigilant during this time. Get vaccinated, sign-up for testing, and follow all health precautions. This email is a reminder regarding our policies for the fall.
It’s time again to #BradleyUnite.
All people, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks in indoor public spaces throughout campus. This applies to all university activities including, but not limited to, welcome back celebrations, Welcome Week activities, and classrooms. Masks should be worn appropriately, covering the mouth and nose.
Students don’t need to wear a mask in their personal rooms/apartments. Faculty and staff don’t need to wear a mask when alone in their private offices. Per the CDC, vaccinated individuals don’t need to wear a mask in outdoor settings. If you’re unvaccinated, we strongly encourage you to wear your mask in outdoor settings.
Vaccination Status Registration
Thank you in advance to those of you who are fully vaccinated and for submitting your status.
Students and employees who are vaccinated should submit their vaccination status by Tuesday, Aug. 24. You may take a picture of your vaccination card or submit a screenshot of the electronic record and email it to the address in the chart below, or you may physically show your vaccine information at the office listed below. If you’ve lost your vaccination card and were vaccinated in Illinois, the state has launched a Vax Verify portal for you to obtain your information. If you aren’t vaccinated yet, but you become vaccinated, you may submit your vaccination information at that point.
If you aren’t fully vaccinated or haven’t supplied the university with your status, you’ll be a part of the campus COVID-19 testing for the fall.

Symptom Tracking and COVID-19 Reporting
By coming to campus, you’re certifying you aren’t exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms. It’s important to be vigilant about your health. If you’re confirmed positive for COVID-19, you’re still required to report your case. Students should report a positive COVID-19 diagnosis to Bradley Health Services by calling 309-677-2700. Employees should fill out the COVID-19 diagnosis form.
We continue to review campus and local COVID-19 data regularly, as well as guidance from governing agencies. While our goal is to provide consistency, all of our decisions are subject to change in this ever-evolving environment.
