Information About Coronavirus & Gilda's Club Chicago

Dear Gilda’s Club Community,

Gilda’s Club Chicago is closely monitoring the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois Department of Health, and press briefings by both the Governor of Illinois and the Mayor of the City of Chicago about the Coronavirus (COVID 19) and has taken a number of precautionary measures for the health and safety of our members, especially those who have compromised immune systems. In response to the recommendations made by these organizations for individuals, we are modifying the delivery of our support program at the Clubhouse starting on Friday, March 13th until further notice.  Each Friday we will assess the situation and modify and provide updates.

Although in-person support is what makes our support program so special and impactful, we have decided to temporarily suspend in-person programming at the Clubhouse and at our hospital locations.  

Beginning Saturday, March 14th, our Support and Networking groups will be facilitated virtually.  If you participate in a weekly group, we will send you contact information regarding consent forms and guidelines and instruction on how to set up for teleconferencing which will occur on the regularly scheduled day and time for your group. For monthly groups, we will continue to have open registration through our online member portal and provide you with teleconferencing information. 

We are going to assess the possibility of digitally offering our healthy lifestyle workshops and educational lectures during this period and will keep you posted as we make progress on this effort.

We understand that the modification and suspension of our programming may present a range of challenges for you and we are here to assist you through this period. Please call us at 312-464-9900 and we will provide you with any additional resources and emotional support you may need during this time.  Please check our website www.gildasclubchicago.org  for updates on our schedule and for more information on COVID-19 and ways to protect yourself and your family, please visit the links below.

Warm regards,

LauraJane Hyde
