QUINCY — Quincy University announced that its campus will reopen for normal business hours on Monday, June 1.

Following guidance from the “Opening Up Together” toolkit, QU said it will ensure appropriate social distancing and adherence to health care guidelines for COVID-19.

Masks will be required for everyone entering campus buildings and in all public spaces. QU said it continues to work closely with local, state and federal authorities as well as public health officials, to ensure the safest possible environment on campus for all employees and guests. 

“Our current and prospective students will benefit from having more access to the people and facilities of the university,” QU President Brian McGee said. “At the same time, we will also follow the public health guidance provided by Adams County and by the state of Illinois, as we all work diligently to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.”

Appointments for all visits to campus will be required, and campus tours will resume by appointment only. Those wishing to visit a campus office should contact that office directly for an appointment. Information about appointments is available at 800-688-4295 or quincy.edu/visit.

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed on campus, and meetings or visits must be rescheduled for those with COVID-19 symptoms.

All summer courses at QU remain online. The Health and Fitness Center will remain closed to the public until further notice.

“For generations, a QU education has been a gateway to success for young men and women from Quincy, the Midwest, and the world,” McGee said. “We hope that the careful reopening of the university is another step towards normalcy for our students, including the students who will begin their university careers in August.”
