As we learn more information about next steps, we will update the campus community as soon as we are able. Champaign County residents with questions should contact CUPHD by phone (217-239-7877) or email (

At this time, the university does not plan to require booster shots, but they are strongly encouraged. Employees may receive a booster shot during work hours without the use of accrued vacation or sick leave.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to continue to maximize safety for our entire community.
