Chicago Emergency Travel Order – Overview for Compass Patients
On 11/10/2020, the Chicago Emergency Travel Order was modified and a system was created that separated states into red, orange, and yellow categories with different guidance made for each category. Most notably, if a person travels to an orange state, they have the option to forego quarantining with a negative Covid-19 test result. At Compass Health Center, we will continue to use a two-category system.
RED – Compass asks that patients who have traveled to RED and ORANGE states quarantine for 14 days upon return to Chicago.
ORANGE – Patients will not have the option to return sooner with a negative COVID-19 test result after traveling to ORANGE states and quarantining for 14 days is still required.
YELLOW – Patients who have traveled to YELLOW states do not need to quarantine and are cleared to return to onsite programming.
All public health officials are advising against any non-essential travel, regardless of the state’s designation. If you have any plans to travel, please contact your treatment team to discuss your schedule.
Please note: The list of designated states is updated every other Tuesday and goes into effect the following Friday at 12:01 a.m.
