The following protocols for employees are effective immediately.
Employees who have been fully vaccinated are not required to wear masks on campus. Fully vaccinated employees are free to choose to continue wearing a mask, and masks may be recommended in certain situations. All employees should keep a mask handy in case one is needed.

Employees who have not been fully vaccinated are required to wear masks while indoors on campus.
Daily Health Screens

Students and Employees
Reporting COVID-19 Exposures or Symptoms
Students and employees who is experiencing COVID-related symptoms or who believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 must report that information to Human Resources immediately. You can report using either the reporting form at www.eicc.edu/covidreport or by calling 563-336-3341 Requirements for returning to campus after exposure are outlined in the EICC COVID-19 Positive and Presumed Positive Protocols at www.eicc.edu/covidexposure.
Failure to comply with the required protocols, intentionally falsifying health screening information or failing to report COVID-related illness or exposure may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination for employees or expulsion for students.
Respect, Kindness and Consideration for Others
It is our responsibility to keep our students and employees safe. It is also our responsibility as leaders in our communities to both model best practice for keeping ourselves and others safe during the ongoing pandemic and at the same time respect the right of others to manage their individual COVID risk.
While we will continue to follow the science and continue to urge everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19, we cannot belittle or demonize those who for various reasons choose not to get vaccinated. Conversely, those who do not believe COVID-19 requires precautions against infection need to respect the behaviors of others who get vaccinated, mask and social distance. If interactions between individuals with different views and practices in response to the pandemic are based in mutual respect, individuals should be able to request behaviors of others based upon their own efforts to manage their personal risk. We need to learn to be able to talk respectfully to each other about our differences and to find common ground on this and other critical concerns in our community. As community leaders, we need to model respect, kindness and consideration for others, including with those with whom we disagree.
