As safety is a primary concern, the Center for Food Allergy and Asthma Research (CFAAR) will follow guidance from the CDC, IDPH, and Northwestern University, to ensure appropriate measures are in place. Effective August 4, 2021, Northwestern reinstated their masking requirement in all indoor shared public spaces. This applies to all students, faculty, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Northwestern will revisit its masking requirement in late August as we learn more about the local trajectory of the pandemic. CFAAR will reference their guidance and update attendees on new developments.

As of August 4, 2021, all FACES participants will be required to wear a mask.
