The State of Illinois and the City of Chicago entered phase 5 of COVID-19 reopening on Friday, June 11. In phase 5, the State and City have moved into a phase with all sectors of the economy reopened.
City Colleges continues to follow the guidance of the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH). Accordingly, as of June 16, 2021, there will be no capacity limitations or social distancing requirements. Additionally, the daily health self-screening will no longer be required to enter CCC facilities.
For now, plexiglass barriers that were installed at areas of major interaction between employees and the public will remain in place, as will hand sanitizer stations and/or wipes at our facility entrances and high traffic areas. In addition, a COVID-19 testing program will be in place for non-vaccinated persons. Detailed information on the testing process, including how to register for testing or be exempted from the program with proof of vaccination, will be shared as it rolls out at each college.
For the time being, all persons must continue to wear masks when entering and exiting CCC buildings, in all common areas, including lobbies, elevators, hallways and restrooms, and when people cannot maintain six feet of distance. Unvaccinated persons should wear a face covering at all times. Our Security teams will continue to maintain a stock of disposable masks at facility entrances for individuals that may have forgotten to bring their own and need one for the day.
