CASL is committed to protecting the health of our clients and staff. We are in regular contact with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH), as well as county and city public health departments. We are following the guidance provided by CDC and IDPH. Any alerts and educational material received from IDPH is translated into Chinese and broadly disseminated via print and social media to CASL staff, community leaders and other organizations serving Chinese immigrants in Chicago. We have increased janitorial cleaning operations to ensure that frequently touched surfaces in the building are cleaned and disinfected frequently throughout the day.


As of February 5, 2020, IDPH is recommending that those returning from mainland China on February 3, 2020 and onward should not attend school or work for 14 days after the return date. This interim guideline is effective as of February 3, 2020 and does not apply retroactively to those who have been in China during the previous 14 days and are already in the US, or those being managed as part of a contact investigation.
