Current Status

  • There are no known COVID-19 cases at Knox College. 
  • Because of the accelerating COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing stay-at-home order from the State of Illinois, Knox College has made the decision to teach the entirety of spring term virtually to minimize further disruption and uncertainty for our students and faculty and to play our part in minimizing transmission of the virus.
