Chicago Announcements October 20, 2021

Florida, Hawaii and Washington, D.C. have been removed from the city’s COVID-19 Travel Advisory list because they have maintained new caseloads below 15 per 100,000 residents for at least two weeks, the Chicago Department of Public Health announced Tuesday. Forty-five states and two territories remain on the list, meaning unvaccinated travelers to Chicago from those states are asked to quarantine or get tested. And health officials noted a “potentially concerning for development for Chicago:” that a “handful of Midwest states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan,” now have among the highest caseloads in the country.  

The Origami Works Foundation will host a webinar at 1 p.m. on Nov. 2 to celebrate the launch of its Talent Solutions Connector, a free tool connecting employers to potential new hires. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle will lead off the event with a keynote speech, and other speakers will include Irene Sherr, deputy chief for the county’s Bureau of Economic Development. Online registration is required.
