Given the concerns and media attention surrounding Coronavirus and the seasonal spike in flu-related illnesses, it is important that we follow good health and everyday prevention practices such as washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering a cough or sneeze with a tissue, etc. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Chicago Department of Public Health (CHPH) both maintain webpages for information about the evolving situation with Coronavirus, smart preventive measures and more.
Per guidance issued by the CDPH, “there is no need for business, community, faith -based or other organizations in Chicago to take any special precautions, including organizations that may have members or employees who have travelled to China. A person who has traveled overseas to China and is well is NOT restricted from work, school or any public activities.” Furthermore, the CDPH does not recommend the use of masks or gloves, any change in daily travel routines, social distancing, cancelling or avoiding mass gatherings, missing work, classes or other public events. The IDPH and CDPH, working with the Centers for Disease Control, will keep us informed of any new or additional guidance that is issued
