COVID-19 & the CU Anschutz Community
A Family's Heartfelt Message: Please Take COVID Seriously
Six months ago, Sergeant Kevin Lyster of the CU Anschutz Police Department, his wife, Lea Ann, and daughter, Sierra, lost their son and brother to COVID-19.
Cody Lyster, a student at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, was just 21 years old when he passed away. The Lyster family shared their story as an important reminder that the coronavirus can impact anyone at any age. Their story also highlights the vital importance of following safety protocols and taking every precaution, on campus and at home.
As we keep Sergeant Lyster, his family, and all of those impacted by COVID-19 in our thoughts, please do your part to stay safe and keep #CUAnschutzTogether.
