Trinity College Masking

Latest Update


The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently updated their public health recommendations for fully vaccinated individuals in non-health care settings. Fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear masks in most settings, and for most activities, except when required by federal or state laws, rules and regulations, including business and workplace guidance.

In accordance with state, local, and CDC guidance, fully vaccinated students, staff, faculty, and visitors at Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences no longer need to wear masks while on campus. A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last dose of the vaccine. Trinity College remains "mask friendly" and welcomes anyone who wants to wear a mask for any reason.

Students and faculty participating in clinical at sites where patient care is provided, will need to continue to follow universal masking guidance. Additionally, students are expected to wear masks in the laboratory setting on the College campus.

Per State of Illinois guidelines, seating in the classroom will be spaced at three-foot intervals starting in the Summer 2021 semester.

CDC guidance updates will continue to be monitored, discussed and incorporated into Trinity College guidelines. The above procedures are subject to change to accommodate new guidelines.
