City of Chicago Travel Quarantine and Northwestern Medicine Visitor Policies

Last updated: February 2, 2021

The City of Chicago has issued an Emergency Travel Order for everyone entering the city after leaving a state that is experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases. Every Tuesday, the City of Chicago updates the list of high-risk states. The most current list can be found here. The city limits for the purpose of this policy are defined by this map.

If you are coming to Northwestern Memorial Hospital or one of its outpatient facilities for your own care, the quarantine rule does not apply. Please call ahead to ensure that you are seen in the most appropriate site. You may be offered a telehealth visit as an option.
