CU Anschutz is actively monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and taking proactive measures in accordance with local and national guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our community. We will continue to update this webpage as new information becomes available.
Beginning Tuesday, May 26, all staff invited and approved to return to campus must adhere to campus safety protocols including check-in screenings. To view a message from Chancellor Don Elliman about the return to campus plans, and learn more about the protocols, please click here.
Effective Monday, March 16, until further notice, faculty and staff not designated as “critical” to their unit or department operations are to work remotely.
All employees at CU Anschutz working remotely are required to register on our remote workforce site. Additionally, anyone who has been asked to self-quarantine or has been exposed to and/or diagnosed with COVID-19 is required to register on the remote workforce site.
Learn about managing HIPAA information while working remotely.
*Please be aware working remotely may not apply to faculty and staff with clinical responsibilities. Please consult with your clinical supervisor.
Students should plan to continue remote learning through the summer months; those with clinicals or other in-person course requirements will be notified of alternative plans by their respective school or college. Students can get help with remote learning tools Canvas and Zoom, find tips on being a successful remote learner, and access resources like online tutoring.
A number of resources are available to support remote teaching. These resources will be updated frequently, so please check back often.

If you have been exposed to the coronavirus (COVID-19), are under quarantine and/or awaiting test results, or if you have been informed by a public health department or a medical provider that you have tested positive or are presumptively positive for the coronavirus, or believe you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, you must report your status. Please take the following steps.
The last step is especially important as we monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) within the campus community and beyond. Gathering pertinent health information is essential to the well-being of the campus community.
We know that CU Anschutz is a close community and that you all care for each other, so if you know someone who may need additional support or you have a concern about something happening in regards to COVID-19, please submit a referral form here.
