On July 30, 2021 an updated mask policy was put into place on all Loyola campuses.

In light of new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) guidance and substantial levels of COVID-19 transmission in the city of Chicago and surrounding counties, masks are now required in all indoor public spaces and in all buildings at all Loyola campuses. This applies to all students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors regardless of vaccination status.

All visitors to Loyola’s campuses must follow the Return to Campus guidelines. Please visit Loyola University Chicago’s Return to Campus Webpage for the most updated information.
