Students must present proof of full vaccination or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing

CDC Isolation and Quarantine Protocols    

The College will discontinue SHIELD Covid-19 testing at the end of the day Wed May 11.  


The College will offer FREE at-home Covid-19 test kits for ALL students who still want/need to test.  Reminder that the Gov.’s mandate for vaccine or weekly test is still in effect.  

These test kits will be available at ALL Centers:

  • Main Campus – B044 (Campus Police)
  • WDC – Admin Office (Kelly)
  • Ag – Reception (Michele)
  • Mt. Sterling – Reception (Jeanne)
  • SEC – Reception (Jaci/Deana)

Each box contains 2 test kits and directions on how to administer the test and see results.  Here is a link to the manufacturer’s website for more information…

To document the test, take a photo with your phone of the test strip showing the result, and email to Student Services or text the results photo to (217) 207-5725.  The email/text should include your name and should be sent on the same day as the test to document the date the test was taken, and results were received.    

As a reminder, students who choose to get vaccinated for Covid-19 should also upload their vaccination card using this link…


What if I don’t want to test at JWCC or miss the testing window at JWCC?
A: You can show proof of vaccination or you can test once per week with a reputable third party, such as
the Health Department, your doctor, or Walgreens.

What if I get tested weekly at my workplace? Do I have to test again?
A: No, you do not have to test again. You can send your weekly results to us at



  • Beginning Monday, February 28th, face coverings will be recommended but optional for employees and students.

  • The College has ordered 1,200 KN95 masks which will be provided free of cost for faculty, staff and students.

  • Staff and faculty who come into close proximity (3 feet or less) with students and others may professionally request a mask be worn.  However, this is not a mandate, just professional courtesy.
