The Student and Employee Wellness Advisory Group issued a policy for visitors/guests to campus. This protocol may be updated as health guidance evolves. The information below spells out the public health measures we are taking to help protect our visitors and the campus community.
A visitor is defined as any individual coming to campus who is not a Knox College student, faculty, or staff member.
Exceptions to the visitor policy may be made at the discretion of a senior staff member.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy outdoor campus spaces, and do not need to register or check in to access those spaces.
Visitors entering indoor spaces for fewer than 15 minutes are also welcome without registering or checking in.
Access to indoor facilities for a period longer than 15 minutes remains restricted to students, faculty, staff, and essential visitors/guests. Essential visitors fall into two categories:
If you have any of the below systems, please reschedule your visit to campus.
If you have any of the above symptoms, please reschedule your visit to campus.
Masks are required for campus visitors at all times indoors.
Masks are not required outside.
Everyone is encouraged to keep a minimum of six (6) feet between themselves and others when reasonable. Additionally, please restrict your movement on campus to the area designated by your host.
Everyone is asked to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or touching your face. If soap and water are not readily available, use one of the hand sanitizer dispensers on campus.
If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 within 14 days of your visit to campus, please notify Knox College Health Services immediately by calling (309) 341-7559.
