Return to Campus-Based Work

North Central College has created guidelines to assist employees – faculty, administrators, staff, graduate assistants and student workers – returning to campus-based work activity in a phased approach. It remains the College’s priority to protect the health and safety of all members of our community and campus visitors. All employees are expected to comply with the policies, protocols and guidelines outlined.

Campus Visitor Policy

Campus visitors are restricted based on the needs of the College. Approved visitors include the following:

  • Prospective students and their families
  • Alumni/donors
  • Applicants/candidates for employment
  • Corporate partners
  • Service partners/vendors with a need to be on campus

Visitors must be approved in advance by supervisors. The hosting department should develop protocols for communicating instructions to the visitor before arriving to campus, including where to park, who to call upon arrival and where to enter the respective building, as well as the requirement to perform a self-screen for symptoms before entering any campus building.

Hosts must escort visitors at all times while maintaining physical distancing and must record all buildings and locations that were visited. While on campus, visitors must follow the required safety protocols. Departments may establish additional safety requirements/procedures relating to visitors to meet the needs of the department.

Travel Policy

Employees must limit non-essential business travel. Employees required to travel must follow CDC travel guidelines to protect themselves and others during their trip.

Employees who travel for personal reasons are expected to comply with the guidelines in place at the time of return of the DuPage County Health Department as well as those of the health department of the county in which they reside. Employees are encouraged to discuss travel plans with their supervisor in advance of travel. In the event that an employee must quarantine following travel for personal reasons, they must discuss with their supervisor to determine if remote work is available. If remote work is not available, the supervisor and employee should contact the Office for Human Resources to discuss options.

If required to quarantine due to travel, employees should notify the College by completing the COVID-19 Reporting Form.
