COVID-19 Updates, Resources & Return to Campus Protocols
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.
CU Anschutz is operating a hybrid model, supporting remote and on-campus working and learning.
Limited return to campus is underway for select research activity and in-person educational requirements that cannot be accomplished remotely.
You have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, whether wearing masks or not, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
Healthcare providers who have had protected contact with COVID-19 patients while wearing respiratory PPE, such as N95 masks, do not need to self-report.
You are under quarantine by direction of a public health agency or medical provider.
Quarantine is a 14-day safety measure in place for individuals exposed to a COVID-19-confirmed person, in case symptoms develop during the incubation period of the virus.
You recently pursued testing for COVID-19 due to exposure or because you were experiencing COVID-like symptoms.
You must not be present on campus until your test results are received. You may work remotely if you are able, with supervisory approval, while awaiting your results.
You have tested positive or are presumptively positive for COVID-19, and/or are in isolation.
Isolation is a 10-day prevention measure to keep COVID-19-positive or presumptively positive individuals from spreading the virus to others.
After submitting your self-report, let your supervisor/unit head know and stay home until contacted with further instructions. Follow the recommendations of the CU Anschutz Contact Tracing Team, public health agency and/or medical provider.
All faculty and staff who have not been designated as “critical” or invited to return to campus for in-person activity are to work remotely until further notice. Clinical faculty and staff should consult with their clinical supervisors.

If you’re experiencing undue stress, anxiety or fear about coronavirus but are not experiencing symptoms, call the Campus Health Center at (303-724-4716) or email SMHservice@ucdenver.edu. Allow up
to 24 hours for a return phone call. Appointments are available virtually. If you have not already, please sign up for a My Health Connection account. There is no charge for a brief
consult regarding coronavirus concerns. Standard copays and deductibles apply for usual visits.
To schedule a virtual walk-in appointment for urgent concerns, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., you may contact a triage counselor at 303-266-4654.
A new Faculty and Staff Mental Health Clinic provides
easily accessible, comprehensive and confidential mental health services to CU Anschutz faculty and staff members. Most insurance accepted.
If you’re a CU Anschutz Medical Campus faculty member, clinician, PRA or staff member, including those at our hospital partners, you can call the Well-Being Support Line (303-724-2500) for help dealing with the stress and uncertainty of the
COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. Learn more here.
Our officials and medical experts, in close coordination with state and local public health experts, are actively monitoring any possible developments and impacts to campus operations.
Additionally, campus leadership has formed a COVID-19 taskforce to address continuity of operations (COOP) plans.
Members of the CU Anschutz community may feel anxious about this evolving public health situation. Please remember that the health and well-being of our community is a group effort, strengthened by our continued support and compassion for the
dignity and humanity of each member. This is especially important at a time when fears about the virus can too easily foster suspicion without regard for facts.
Please rely on reputable sources -- such as the CDC, WHO and CDPHE -- for information about the virus.
If you or someone you know has experienced bias, please reach out to the Office of Equity.
