The Spring COVID-19 Updates and Guidance website is a one-stop-shop for students to access important updates and resources related to the pandemic. Students can easily information on on-campus experiences, virtual events, academic support and other student services. In addition, you can find a spring 2021 guide for students and helpful apps for spring here.
As a reminder from last quarter, students can report cases about themselves here or someone else here to ensure the health and safety of the DePaul community. If a student or someone they know has symptoms including a fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing, they should reach out to their healthcare provider or DePaul’s Health Services, AMITA Sage Medical, at (773) 549-7757, for medical advice.
Newsline released a COVID-19 Vaccine Update in March that covered Chicago’s recent announcement of vaccination distribution phase 1c. This phase includes higher education employees, and a survey revealed that 92 percent of DePaul faculty, staff and student-employee respondents said that either have received or plan on receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. That being said, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) does not expect people eligible for the vaccine in 1c to make appointments until late May. Read the full update here.
