Guidance on Travel, Group Activities, Contact Info Update

Dear CCC Community:

To ensure the health and safety of the community, under the guidance of Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot, City Colleges of Chicago has prepared restrictions for events, group gatherings and travel. These restrictions are effective immediately.

Guidance on Travel

All Domestic Travel Conducted on Behalf of City Colleges Is Cancelled Through At Least April 12:

All college sanctioned trips outside of Chicago city limits, including sports, are canceled through Spring Break (April 12). Additional guidance will be issued for travel post Spring Break in the upcoming weeks.
For personal domestic travel, employees should closely monitor CDC Travel Guidance for up-to-date travel restrictions and necessary health precautions. There are not currently domestic travel restrictions. However, you may be at higher risk of exposure if you travel to areas that have experienced COVID-19 outbreaks. If you or your travel companion(s) are at higher risk of severe illness, you should avoid all nonessential travel. We urge caution and the exercise of personal judgment. If you return from travel and experience fever and respiratory symptoms, please contact your medical provider immediately.
All international travel on behalf of City Colleges is canceled until further notice.

Guidance on Group Activities

We are limiting group activities and events. Athletics will be suspended until further notice.

All sports, including games and all practices, are cancelled until further notice.

Essential college activities involving students, faculty, and staff can proceed as usual.

Non-essential activities with more than 50 participants must be rescheduled to a later date, held virtually or canceled.

We are limiting visitors to CCC facilities

Colleges must limit any non-essential visitors. Vendors, service providers, and any other essential personnel who are required for the daily functioning of the college can continue to provide services as usual. Colleges must follow the guidance on group gathering restrictions for visitors in all circumstances. CCC staff should only travel between colleges, if essential.

All use of College facilities by external organizations is suspended through April 4 or until further notice.

Rely on trusted information.

As the situation with COVID-19 develops, CCC will continue issuing updates. For the most reliable information about COVID-19, please visit:
