We have learned that there are currently three CU Anschutz Medical Campus employees who have tested positive for COVID-19. All three are receiving appropriate care in isolated environments, and all close contacts of these individuals have been
notified directly per our policy.
These cases are confined to a single unit and had close contact through their work activities; at this time, there is no indication of wider spread, and these individuals did not have clinical responsibilities.
Given that the transmission may have occurred between related cases on campus, this is considered an “outbreak” - defined by Tri-County Health Department as two or more cases that are linked to a known exposure at a workplace, school or other facility.
Campus leaders are working in lockstep with Tri-County Health Department to follow established protocols. CU Anschutz is disinfecting any areas where these individuals were known to have been present.
Thank you for your continued support and let’s recommit to following the safety protocols on campus.
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.
