Alumnae/i Coronavirus Information

In keeping with the Caritas Commitment, we encourage all guests to be mindful of and abide by current public health guidelines. Your health and safety is our utmost priority. The Office of Alumnae/i Relations is currently planning for in-person events and activities beginning in the fall, barring any major changes in the trajectory of the pandemic. As the campus moves towards re-opening we will continue to follow State of Illinois guidance on the easing of mitigation measures, while still requiring the wearing of masks and social distancing, especially indoors. (Fully vaccinated individuals are not counted in room capacity limits.)

We will ask guests to campus to continue:

  • Wearing a mask in all spaces as directed by the University
  • Practicing physical distancing and respecting the personal space of others
  • Observing guidelines for use of space on campus
  • Following University rules related to visitors and guests
  • Following recommendations and requirements related to travel and social gatherings
  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water or sanitizing them regularly
  • Practicing respiratory etiquette and covering my cough/sneeze
  • Self-monitor for symptoms of Covid-19 and stay home if you are feeling sick or unwell, or if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19
  • Participating in testing or quarantining if you are identified as a contact of anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19
  • Participating fully and honestly with contact tracing to determine whom I may have exposed to Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a disruptive, stressful influence on all of our lives. As a member of the Dominican University community, you have an important role in keeping yourself healthy and in protecting others from the spread of this virus and serving as role models to current students and community members. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we emerge stronger, together, through this difficult time.

In Caritas and Veritas,

The Office of Alumnae/i Relations
