The following dashboard is based on reports confirmed by Latin School of Chicago's COVID-19 Response Team. As part of our commitment to prioritizing the health and safety of our community, we've created this public dashboard tracking positive COVID-19 cases and results from the saliva screener among Latin students and employees.
The dashboard will be updated automatically with any information provided to Latin’s health office. Please review Latin School of Chicago's Health Office Frequently Asked Questions for more information regarding our COVID-19 procedures.

Take the Pledge
By signing the Latin School of Chicago Community Health Pledge, members of the Latin community enter into a shared obligation and commitment to act prudently, safely and in accordance with public health directives as we return to campus.
Our adherence to the pledge is just one more aspect of Latin life that reflects our values of excellence, community, and integrity.
For the students, faculty and staff who come into our facilities, many on a daily basis, we acknowledge that our environment cannot be made risk-free even where we have implemented a number of preventative measures based on guidance from city, state and national public health authorities.
We appreciate that each of you must make your own decisions. Ultimately, each of us must follow these safeguards at school and at home in order to reduce risk and mitigate spread.
