New Check-In Process & Updated Training Launch Monday, March 1

February 25, 2021

Great news! Your dedication to keeping the CU Anschutz community safe and healthy has allowed us to make some changes to our protocols.

Starting Monday, March 1, you will see changes to our campus check-in process and a new training requirement. Students, faculty and staff will now be able to check in more quickly and easily. In addition, all must take an updated COVID-19 training this month. Safety protocols, including masks and physical distancing, remain in place.

Read details below:

Check-In Changes

  • The required daily health questionnaire will begin asking for your temperature. 
    • Take your own temperature at home, or stop by a convenient self-service station to do so (more info below).
    • As usual, you can find the daily health questionnaire on the campus coronavirus website or posted signage.
  • No more in-person screening or wristbands required.
    • The Hensel-Phelps check-in location will remain open for anyone needing in-person assistance.
    • Patients, vendors and other visitors may encounter different screening and check-in requirements at their campus destinations. Established check-in processes remain in place at our hospital partners.

Self-Service Stations

No thermometer? No problem. 

Take your temperature at one of the self-service stations on campus before filling out the daily health questionnaire. 

Self-service stations are located in Hensel-Phelps and will soon be available in most university buildings. Look for the wooden stands in lobbies and common areas.


Remember to use a provided disinfectant wipe before and after.

Updated Training Required by March 31

An update to the required Skillsoft training launches next week, called “CU: COVID-19 Return to Campus-CU Anschutz (2021 update).” All students and employees approved for on-campus activity must take the updated training by March 31. 

Please note that this updated Skillsoft training requirement is an addition to the previous “COVID-19: Return to Campus” training you took upon approval for on-campus activity. Ensure you are up to date by taking the new training before March 31.

Safety Protocols Have Not Changed

Remember to follow existing guidelines on campus, regardless of whether you have been vaccinated.

  • Wear your CU Anschutz badge at all times. Badge only yourself into university buildings.
  • Bring and wear a mask at all times.
  • Keep at least 6 feet from others.
  • Avoid gathering, congregating or meeting in person.
  • Disinfect your workspace, and practice hand hygiene.
  • Do everything remotely that can be done remotely.
  • Leave campus immediately if you feel sick or may have been exposed, inform your supervisor and self-report.
