Beginning on Monday, November 23, 2020, the Rock Valley College Library will be open to students, faculty, and staff of RVC only. The RVC Library will be closed to community members. Community members who currently have materials checked out may return their items in the book drop or call the library for a due date extension. 

For everyone’s safety, if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, we ask that you please stay home and consider seeking medical attention to rule out COVID. If you are tested for COVID and are waiting for results you must isolate until you receive those results. This also serves as a reminder on the College’s protocols for self-reporting COVID. Students and employees are required to fill out an online self-reporting form if: 

  • you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms; 
  • you have received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis; 
  • you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

Self-reporting forms for both students and employees can be found at

As you have heard many times, to protect yourself and mitigate the spread of COVID, as well as seasonal flu, please continue to practice social distancing, wear a face covering, and sanitize or wash your hands frequently. 

Let’s all do our part to keep our campuses and our community healthy and safe.
