Faculty and Staff Return to Work

The Purpose of the Reopening Plan

Last updated: June 25, 2020

At Trinity Christian College, we are committed to the safety of our campus community. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trinity has taken proactive steps to minimize health and safety risks to Trinity students, faculty, staff and the larger community. To continue to ensure a safe and healthy environment, Trinity has developed this plan for the return of campus personnel and in-person instruction for Fall 2020.

This plan has been developed by Trinity’s COVID-19 Response Team, with guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH), and other experts and resources. Every member of the Trinity community is responsible for implementing and following the guidelines of this plan.   We also are working with the Higher Education Task Force in Illinois, an effort with the Illinois Board of Higher Education, the Governor’s Office, and the Federation of Illinois Independent Colleges and Universities.  Please note that these guidelines will be in effect while Illinois is in Phase Four.  Should the Phase change either to move back to Three or up to Five, Trinity will update these policies and practices accordingly.

The COVID-19 pandemic situation has evolved quickly, and this plan will be updated as circumstances change. Please stay alert as new information is communicated, and be sure to check this page frequently.

Questions concerning any aspect of this plan should be directed to your supervisor or Julia Foust, Director of Human Resources.
