Updated as of February 24, 2022

We are committed to providing a safe and celebratory Reunion Weekend. Please note that while we are planning to have Reunion in-person and on-campus, we may need to shift plans if deemed necessary. With these uncertain times, University of Chicago and City of Chicago policies and guidelines are continually changing. We will update the policies for participating in Reunion as these guidelines change.  At this time,

  1. Proof of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before the event, or a positive COVID-19 test dated 14–90 days prior to the event is required to participate in Reunion activities.
  2. Per current University guidelines, masks will be optional in most non-medical campus spaces.

This convening is open to all invitees who are compliant with UChicago vaccination requirements and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
