As of June 11, 2021, the state of Illinois is in Phase 5 and fully restored. This means that testing, tracing and treatment are widely available throughout the state. In Illinois all sectors of the economy are reopened with health and hygiene practices in place and large gatherings of all sizes may resume.
First Institute follows the CDC guidance for Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) and the state of Illinois recommendations. Fully vaccinated staff, students and massage clients are not required to wear a mask on campus or in the massage clinic. Those who are NOT vaccinated are required to wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, and wash hands regularly. Fully vaccinated students working in the massage clinic may also need to wear a mask upon client request. Although people who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks, we are supportive of vaccinated people who choose to do so.
