Waubonsee Community College Says Employee Tested Positive for Coronavirus

March 18, 2020 – College Update

9:40 a.m.

Earlier today we learned that an employee of the college has tested positive for the coronavirus. The employee works in Collins Hall on the Sugar Grove Campus. The last day the employee reported to work was March 4. This is the first reported case of the coronavirus at Waubonsee. Our thoughts are with this individual throughout the recovery process.

Because of this information, the college is taking additional measures to protect the community. All college campuses will close for business at noon on Wednesday, March 18. This is a change from the college’s previous announcement to close at 10 p.m. on March 18. All college operations and meetings for the day are canceled, including the Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

During this time, all buildings will be thoroughly cleaned.  There will be no access to any college buildings until further notice. 

The college will continue to provide updates at www.waubonsee.edu/COVID19. If you have questions or immediate concerns, please call the Waubonsee coronavirus hotline at (630) 466-2820.
