Members of the DePaul community,
Late in the evening on March 9, it was reported that a patient with a confirmed case of COVID-19 had been working on the TV show "Next" at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios. The university holds classes and conducts prospective student tours in DePaul's facilities at Cinespace. We understand this may cause concern among the university community and wanted to provide the update below:
CDC does not recommend self-quarantining or testing of "contacts of contacts." In general, unless you have been advised to do so, you do NOT need to self-quarantine. You should self-monitor for symptoms and stay home if sick. For more information, please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html For more information on COVID-19 in Chicago, please visit: www.chicago.gov/coronavirus
The Task Force is continuing to gather information and to plan for responding to this wide-ranging and quickly-evolving situation and will provide updates regularly. Please visit: go.depaul.edu/covid for additional information.
