Following yesterday’s announcement of work-related travel suspensions, many have asked about in-state travel. The suspension does NOT restrict in-state travel for staff and students at this time. However, we continue to encourage
our campus community to take necessary precautions and follow CDC prevention protocols. Please consider the risk if traveling in-state for non-essential events including attendance at conferences and large gatherings.
In addition, the length of time for work-related travel suspensions will depend on the trajectory of the viral pandemic. We will monitor closely and keep the campus community updated as this evolves.
As the campus prepares and plans for any potential disruptions in operations, the provost has asked faculty to explore the move to online courses. For instructors who may need to pivot quickly to creating their online courses, Dr. Jason Drysdale and his team of instructional designers, created a resources link with foundational resources for teaching online. Thank you to the Office of Digital Education for the guidance.
To keep children safe and prevent community spread, please do not bring children to the workplace or classroom. If your child’s school is canceled, we encourage you to make alternative childcare plans. (See university guidelines on children in the workplace/classroom here.)
Currently, there are 15 presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Colorado. As the coronavirus disease becomes more widespread across the state, we will continue provide updates and information to our campus community through email messages
and on www.cuanschutz.edu/coronavirus.
Colorado public health officials are contacting those who have had known contact with persons confirmed with COVID-19. CU Anschutz follows the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) recommendations for exposure.
If a public health official contacts you, please let your supervisor know immediately, follow the recommendations of the public health agency, and submit a case report via the Maxient website.
If you need to self-quarantine, please see the COVID-19 website for guidance.
If you have a fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing OR if you have traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19:
