CU Anschutz is actively monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and taking proactive measures in accordance with local and national guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our community. We will continue to update this webpage as new information becomes available.

Latest Guidance

  • Students experiencing stress, anxiety and fear are encouraged to call the Campus Health Center (303-724-4716) for help. There is no charge for a brief consult regarding coronavirus concerns. Standard copays and deductibles apply for usual visits. Faculty, staff, PRAs and clinicans can call the Well-Being Support Line (303-724-2500) from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week.

Remote Teaching

If you have been exposed to the coronavirus (COVID-19), are under quarantine and/or awaiting test results, or if you have been informed by a public health department or a medical provider that you have tested positive or are presumptively positive for the coronavirus, or believe you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, you must report your status. Please take the following steps.

  • Let the head of your business unit know immediately (or your professor, if you’re a student)
  • Follow the recommendations of the public health agency
  • Submit a self-report to CU Anschutz by clicking the button below

The last step is especially important as we monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) within the campus community and beyond. Gathering pertinent health information is essential to the well-being of the campus community.
