To help students comply, the first two weeks of class will be conducted fully online, even if a course is scheduled to meet face-to-face in winter quarter or as part of the College of Law's January term. If you will be living in Chicago, please plan on being here and staying inside during those two weeks so you can attend any in-person courses or participate in in-person activities in the third week.
Everyone should also keep in mind Chicago's travel order. It applies to all of your activity in the city, not only planned visits to campus. Visit the city of Chicago's Emergency Travel Order site for a list of the states affected and requirements. States are categorized by the level of community spread. If you will come from a state in the red or orange categories, which applies to almost the entire country, you will need to follow these instructions:
The city updates states on the list each Tuesday, so please check the website before returning to Chicago. By following the city's order, you will help keep everyone around you safe.
While many students will be arriving to our residence halls or apartments in Chicago from within Illinois or states in the “orange" category, we are still asking everyone to quarantine for the full 14-day period. Regardless of where you traveled, all residence hall students will be required to quarantine for the first two weeks of the winter term to help contain the spread of COVID-19. We encourage all students living off-campus to do the same. This will ensure we are doing everything we can to reduce any spread of COVID-19.
Residence hall students should refer to Housing's Return/Move In FAQs on its website. Residence hall students also received a separate email from Housing with additional instructions.
Thank you for doing everything you can to stay healthy and take care of each other. We're all in this together.
