In mid-June, DePaul University, our venue, will make a decision regarding opening up the campus in the fall. At that time, we will communicate our plans for JoomlaDay Chicago 2020.

At this time, we are proceeding forward as our event. We are closely monitoring things and given our event is in October have adopted a wait-and-see approach.  We are encouraged to see many events that were originally planned for March and April move to September, October, and November.  

Like all organizations, companies, and events, our first thought is for the health and safety of all who are apart of JoomlaDay Chicago.  As such we are actively monitoring our venue, DePaul University, the Cook County Department of Health, and the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The latest information from the CDC is available online​ and we strongly encourage you to follow the measures recommended:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are not available.
