Masks are required for everyone in indoor campus spaces.
Campus events, classes and gatherings must follow these mask guidelines.
Anyone may choose to continue wearing a mask, even once vaccinated, and units may choose to implement more conservative mask policies if desired.
Weekly COVID-19 testing is required for unvaccinated students and employees, starting September 1. This includes those who have an approved medical or religious exemption on file.
Testing is available at no cost through our partner - COVIDCheck Colorado - at numerous area locations. More information on the mandatory testing program is detailed here.
Building exterior doors remain under badge access for the foreseeable future. Each person must badge in individually. Even if the door is open, or someone is holding the door for you, please run your badge on the card reader for authorization.
All movement restrictions within university buildings are eliminated, except where applicable during pre-COVID operations. No action is required to reactivate your badge, unless it has expired, in which case you need to contact the
Security Badging Office.
Visitors and guests (including contractors and vendors) are allowed on campus, provided they follow the same campus protocols as students, faculty and staff. It is the responsibility of sponsoring units or individuals to ensure visitors and guests are informed of and adhere to campus protocols.
The following apply to in-person activities for the foreseeable future. Guidelines are subject to change.
Students began returning for on-campus courses in June and will continue throughout the summer months, per the standard academic schedule. Summer educational programs that are currently scheduled as hybrid will make their own decisions
as to whether to continue as scheduled or pivot to additional in-person learning activity.
Administrative units planning for return are no longer required to complete return to campus forms. Units may make their own decisions within campus guidelines that best serve their work unit and function, while also protecting students
and employees and helping to preserve workplace safety.
Laboratory, vivarium, clinical and community research will continue at its current operational status. Research administration will work with COVID officials to update guidelines reflecting the changes described here to ensure the
safety of researchers and participants.
It is the responsibility of supervisors/unit heads in all areas to plan and oversee a safe return to campus schedule that is appropriate to their operations and function. They may choose to implement stricter requirements than
the on-campus protocols delineated above particularly pertaining to mask wearing and physical distancing, as deemed appropriate for maintaining the health and safety of their areas. Supervisors/unit heads and HR directors are also responsible
for documenting work arrangements by Labor Day, per campus policy,
for the members of their teams.
Supervisors/unit heads may ask their students and employees about their vaccination status in order to facilitate planning. It is wholly up to students and employees whether to voluntarily provide information about their vaccination status, and they may choose to decline. Unvaccinated individuals are required to follow alternative procedures on campus, which include completing the daily health questionnaire, wearing masks and distancing and complying with mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing.
COVID officials will remain in place for the foreseeable future, and may be assigned in administrative areas. New responsibilities aligned with changes to campus protocols will be determined for those holding this role over the coming weeks.

The remote work policy has been updated, and provides guidance and requirements for supervisors navigating ongoing full-time and part-time remote work, as well as hybrid work arrangements, by individuals in their units. A formalized agreement documenting remote work arrangements is required for safety and risk reasons, and forms are available in the policy document. These agreements should be in place by Labor Day.
