COVID-19 Pandemic UPDATE
Starting Saturday, March 21, Gov. Pritzker has ordered a “shelter in place” directive. This directive closes all non-essential businesses and asks that the populous quarantine themselves. Chicago Research Center, as a medical research facility, is considered an essential business and is able to remain open with limitation. We need to consider the safety of our subjects, staff and general population. Chicago Research Center wishes not to contribute to the proliferation of this contagion and to that end we will not be allowing any new study participants into our facility until further notice. Our priority to our active participants we will be to provide care best we can within the restriction placed upon with social distancing and consciousness.
We wish everyone well and hope that all of us together can work to limit the impact of COVID-19.
Eric Malm – Vice President
