In accordance with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) Emergency Travel Order, students who arrive in Chicago from designated states/territories must quarantine for 14 days. The list of designated states—note that it changes frequently—is available on the City of Chicago’s website.
Quarantine is defined as “staying at a single designated home or dwelling for 14 days before doing any activities outside of the home. People in quarantine should separate themselves from others as much as possible and check themselves for symptoms.” This means that a quarantining student should only leave their residence to seek medical care or COVID-19 testing and should not leave to go to the grocery store, drug store, restaurant or any other place of business.
Off-campus students arriving from CDPH-designated states must complete the 14-day quarantine period in Chicago before coming to campus for courses, research, or any other in-person activities. Students need to make arrangements to have food and other needed supplies delivered to their residences.
On-campus students arriving from CDPH-designated states should quarantine in their residence halls for the 14-day period. The University will facilitate meal delivery during this time. Students need to make arrangements to have other needed supplies delivered to their residences.
