Executive Education's COVID-19 Safety Plans

Updated June 5, 2022

Based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as university, government, and health entities, we have carefully established protocols designed to promote a healthy environment for our faculty, staff, participants and visitors.

Participants in our classroom programs will be required to be fully vaccinated and complete COVID-19 testing prior to arrival and during course of the program. Unvaccinated participants will be required to complete COVID-19 testing prior to arrival and during course of the program.  Masks are not required

We will continue to monitor all CDC guidelines and may adjust our requirements if conditions change. Please review this page and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) before your arrival on campus for more details and any additional updates. If you have questions, please contact Kellogg at execed@kellogg.northwestern.edu.


This page will be the one source for information regarding COVID-19 safety measures in place while attending programs on our Chicago and Evanston campuses.


Frequently Asked Questions

A participant will need to provide a proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test conducted within 48 hours prior to arrival on campus, on the first day of classroom instruction at our facility and at 72 hour intervals during your program. Typically, this would be on Monday and Thursday mornings. Longer programs will require subsequent testing every 72 hours.  Your Program Manager will provide specific information on the simple process to upload your vaccination information.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR TESTING IF I AM UNVACCINATED OR CHOSE NOT TO PROVIDE VACCINATION STATUS?

Participants must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test that was done not more than 48 hours prior to arrival on campus. The participant is responsible for the cost of the pre-arrival test. Subsequently, the participant must administer and submit proof of a negative rapid test on the first classroom day and every 72 hours. The test kit will be provided by Kellogg at no charge to the participant. Additional testing will be required at 72-hour intervals while attending the program. Any positive test result will prohibit the participant from attending the program. Northwestern University’s COVID testing sites may be used by participants at no cost.  The Program Manager will provide information on the simple process to upload your test results.



WHICH TESTS ARE ACCEPTABLE?

Participants may submit an approved PCR or Rapid test. If a participant has a positive Rapid test after arriving on campus, they will be required to have a confirming PCR test at a local Northwestern clinic. A participant with a positive COVID-19 test prior to arrival on campus will not be permitted to attend the program. If a participant has a positive Rapid test and a positive confirming PCR test after arrival on campus, the individual will not be permitted to continue in the program. Any additional expenses incurred due to a positive test, including the PCR test, are the sole responsibility of the individual.



DO I NEED TO WEAR A MASK EVERYWHERE ON CAMPUS?

Masks are not required anywhere on Northwestern’s campus. If you are staying at a local hotel or dining outside of a Northwestern building, you will be required to adhere to the masking policies of the hotel or restaurant. 



HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO SUBMIT MY VACCINATION OR TESTING DOCUMENTS?

We request that vaccination status is submitted 14 days prior to the program for vaccination information. The pre-arrival COVID-19 test result should be provided at least 12 hours prior to arrival.



WHAT ARE THE VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS FOR KELLOGG FACULTY AND STAFF?

Northwestern University requires vaccination and booster for all faculty, staff and enrolled students on campus. Any exceptions to the policy require University approval. Any outside vendors on campus are required to comply with the University’s masking requirement and their company’s health and safety requirements. Subject to limited exceptions, faculty and staff who work on campus and students must obtain a COVID-19 vaccination booster by Sunday, Jan. 30, 2022, or 30 days after becoming eligible, whichever is later



ARE THERE ANY CHANGES TO LIVE VIRTUAL PROGRAMS?

We will continue to deliver programs in a live virtual format according to our published schedule. If you have any questions about your registration in an upcoming live virtual program, please email us at execed@kellogg.northwestern.edu
