COVID-19 Guidelines Update – Phase 5

06/15/2021 10:07 am

As communicated on Friday, June 11, 2021, Illinois has moved to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan, which has lifted many of the previous Covid-19 restrictions. As such, effective today, Tuesday, June 15, 2021, Rockford University will be moving to the following guidelines: 

  • If you are vaccinated, you will no longer be required to wear a mask or practice social distancing while inside or outside of our campus buildings. By not wearing a mask, you are certifying that you are fully vaccinated.
  • If you are not vaccinated, you must continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing inside our campus buildings. Outside, you do not need to wear a mask unless you are unable to social distance.
  • Normal capacity will resume for events held inside and outside of campus buildings.

We will be reviewing and updating these restrictions again in mid-July prior to the start of the academic year. In the meantime, we encourage all members of the Rockford University community to get vaccinated. We do ask that students who are fully vaccinated email to find out the best way to add a copy of your vaccine card to your medical chart at Lang Wellness Center. Employees should email This information will be kept in your confidential file and will only be used for contact tracing purposes. 

If you are sick, test positive for Covid-19, or are a close contact of someone with symptoms of or positive for Covid-19, email (students) or (employees). Any questions can also be directed to these email addresses. 

Thank you,
