    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.

    • You have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
    • You are under quarantine by direction of a public health agency or medical provider, and/or awaiting test results for COVID-19.
    • You have been informed by a public health agency or a medical provider that you have tested positive or are presumptively positive for COVID-19.
    • You believe you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

    If you fall into any of these groups, please take the following steps.

    1. Let your head of your business unit know immediately (or your professor, if you’re a student)
    2. Follow the recommendations of the public health agency or medical provider
      1. You must follow CDPHE guidance and self-quarantine for 2 weeks If you have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.

    These last two steps are especially important as we monitor the impact of COVID-19 within the campus community and beyond. Gathering pertinent health information is essential to the well-being of the campus community.
