Tips for Staying Healthy

As we kick off a new year at CU Anschutz, you can help keep our community healthy.

With communicable illnesses common this time of year ‒ including COVID-19flucold and RSV ‒ there are steps we can take to protect ourselves and one another.

  • Consider masking on campus.
    • While masks are not required of those up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations, unless in clinical environments, they are effective tools for preventing the spread of communicable illnesses and are strongly encouraged.
    • Anyone may choose to continue wearing a mask and is strongly encouraged to do so at their discretion. Consider wearing a mask when around peers and colleagues. 
    • printable poster is available for those units, offices or work areas wishing to request masking in their areas.
  • Stay home when sick. Contact your faculty or advisor if you will miss class or your supervisor if you will miss work due to illness. 
  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccines including boosters, and get your flu shot.
  • Test for COVID-19 as needed, and follow current public health guidance. Find current CU Anschutz protocols on the campus coronavirus website.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain distance from others indoors.
  • Wash and sanitize your hands frequently, and cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Consult the latest travel guidance when planning a trip.
  • Contact your medical provider for assistance with an illness.

COVID-19 Boosters: Stay Up to Date

Staying up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations means getting the most recent booster recommended for you, in addition to the primary series. Find detailed guidance on vaccines and boosters on the CDC website

Once you obtain an updated COVID-19 booster, please add your booster information to the CU Anschutz vaccine verification system using the bivalent selections. 

COVID-19 boosters are available at area locations including pharmacies and providers across Colorado. You can also schedule at UCHealth locations using My Health Connection.
