As members of the Alliance Française de Chicago community, it is vital that we work together to help protect our community’s health and safety. This is particularly critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are asking every person in our building to commit to the Alliance Française de Chicago Health Pact to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For the sake of myself and fellow community members, I agree to uphold the Alliance Française de Chicago Health Pact. I will:

·Purchase my tickets in advance; no tickets will be available at the door. This allows us to control the number of attendees to maintain safe social distancing.

·Wear a face mask covering nose and mouth in the Alliance buildings or whenever other people are in  the immediate area.

·Maintain a distance of at least six feet from others whenever possible.

·Wash my hands frequently or use hand sanitizer (for example, before eating, after using the restroom, and after touching shared objects or surfaces).

·Check my health symptoms daily, and stay home if I don’t feel well or am experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

·Report promptly to if I have knowingly been exposed to or test positive for COVID-19.
