We have learned that two individuals at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus have currently tested positive for COVID-19. Both are receiving appropriate care in isolated environments, and all close contacts of both individuals have been notified directly
per our policy. If you have not been contacted, you are not considered at risk of exposure.
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 cases did not involve our hospital partners.
As a reminder, Tri-County Health Department defines an outbreak as two or more cases that are presumed linked to a known exposure at a workplace, school or other facility. We report these cases to Tri-County, which posts them on their public tracking website.
The CU Anschutz contact tracing team is working quickly and carefully to investigate every case thoroughly and keep risk contained. Their work is essential to preventing COVID-19 spread among our community. We have expanded the team to ensure our continued ability to respond with speed and agility as conditions evolve.
As we see a resurgence of COVID-19 in Colorado and across the country, now is the time to be more aware, cautious and vigilant - both on and off campus. Please remember to wear a mask, keep your distance, and stay home when you are sick. If you are approved for on-campus activity, ensure you are thoughtfully and accurately completing the daily health questionnaire, and following safety and screening protocols to the letter.
Let’s continue to take care of ourselves and our community.
Reporting on COVID-19 exposure and testing is essential to our campus community. You must self-report your status if you fall into any of the following groups:
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.
