UChicago Health Pact

As members of the University of Chicago community, it is vital that we work together to help protect our community’s health and safety. This is particularly critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are asking every person on campus to commit to the UChicago Health Pact to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

collage

When back on campus, we ask that everyone commit to protecting our community by following the UChicago Health Pact – a brief reminder of our commitment to uphold public health requirements.

The measures outlined in the UChicago Health Pact will help us achieve our goal of providing a safe environment for our entire campus community. Please remember that we are still in a dynamic COVID-19 environment. These required protocols pertain to the early stages of returning to on-campus activities and could change as the public health situation evolves.
