Frequently Asked Questions


COVID-19 can cause mild to severe respiratory illness. The virus appears to be transmitted through person-to-person contact and health authorities expect more cases may occur in Chicago and the United States. Practicing basic hygiene such as washing your hands regularly with soap is the best way to stop the transmission of the virus.

Practice good hygiene.

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is best.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Practice social distancing whenever possible.
If you have concerns about your health, please contact your personal health care provider, email the City of Chicago’s coronavirus hotline coronavirus@chicago.gov or call the hotline at 312-746-4835.
Our janitorial staff is focused throughout each day on regularly cleaning of:
  • Surfaces in cafeterias/lunch rooms, washrooms and high touch areas
  • Common area surfaces, such as door handles, elevator call buttons, conference room tables, chairs in the lobbies, and other common area surfaces
This cleaning regimen will continue to be emphasized as part of our ongoing response to this public health concern.  Please wash your hands frequently and utilize the hand sanitizer dispensers that are placed throughout all of the colleges.
If you have traveled to a location with widespread community transmission of COVID-19, you should stay home for 14 days after your return date.
