Traveling out of state? We need to know**...

We follow the Chicago Emergency Travel Order, which is updated every Tuesday, for domestic travel regardless of whether the traveler resides in the city of Chicago, Cook County or Lake County. ​​​​​​​

Domestic travelers to an “Orange state” on the Chicago Emergency Travel Order mapmust adhere to:

  • 10-day quarantine upon return OR
  • Pre-arrival negative test (within 72 hours prior to return arrival to the state) with strict masking, physical distancing and avoidance of in-person gatherings (separate from school attendance). Any test administered by a 3rd-party is sufficient; however, a self-administered test is not acceptable. Archdiocesan schools should accept any negative test prior to school attendance including tests upon return to the state.

**Please watch your email as this may be subject to change
