Update on COVID-19 Vaccine Booster and Mask Guidelines

Hi Honors Community,

With in-person learning returning this coming week (Tuesday, January 18th), it is more important than ever that we do all we can to keep ourselves and others safe and healthy. As you may have seen, DePaul has updated its guidelines to help limit COVID exposure during Winter Quarter. Following the guidance of the Chicago Public Health Department, there are new requirements regarding booster vaccinations and updated mask guidelines.

Students, faculty and staff should receive a COVID-19 booster as soon as they are eligible, and proof of a booster vaccine is required by Tuesday, March 1st. Additionally, cloth masks alone no longer meet the mask requirements, and KN95 or N95 masks are highly recommended. If you do not have access to these types of masks, you may layer a cloth mask over a surgical one, and certain DePaul buildings will have a limited number of KN95 masks available. To see a list of these locations, visit the face masks FAQ at: https://resources.depaul.edu/coronavirus/faqs/Pages/health-wellness-prevention.aspx. It is also recommended that everyone get tested for COVID-19 before returning to campus. Visit: https://resources.depaul.edu/coronavirus/resources/Pages/testing-information.aspx for testing hours and locations.

Keep an eye out for updates and thank you for doing your part in keeping our DePaul community healthy.
