Contact Tracing

04 Feb Contact Tracing

  • Contact Tracing: We’ve received a number of questions about contact tracing over the weeks since returning to campus, and now have plans to meet with relevant administrators to get those questions answered.

  • FAQ & Further Inquiries: You can find general guidelines on contact tracing from UIC here. However, we know that some have had questions or concerns, and want to make sure the CT system is working for faculty and students. We encourage you to contact us with questions or concerns at so we can seek resolutions.

Dear Colleagues,

We’ve heard from several of you on questions about ongoing COVID safety and contact tracing, and have been seeking answers. You can find UIC’s official policies and procedures for contact tracing here, with links to other COVID safety resources at the bottom of the page. Of course, we are aware that the stated policies may not cover all eventualities, and that members have had questions and concerns dealing with the CT system. We are currently planning to meet with the administration’s CT team representatives in the near future to get those questions and concerns addressed. 

As ever, if you have questions or issues about contact tracing, any other aspect of the back-to-campus transition, or a separate concern about working conditions, please reach out to us ASAP at
