Masks are now optional at CU Denver

Although we have relaxed our COVID protocols, we urge you to stay up-to-date on your vaccines, and stay home if you feel sick. Follow the self-reporting guidelines if you are sick, exposed or if you test positive.

Latest Mask Guidance

KN95 Masks Available

To help prevent the transmission of COVID via aerosols, CU Denver has a limited supply of KN95 masks — one of the most effective tools available.

You can pick up a KN95 mask at the Lynx Central Main Desk, located on the 1st floor of the Student Commons building.

Masking Importance

Masking can be a critical public health tool and it is important to remember that it can protect yourself as well as others by reducing the spread of COVID-19 aerosols.

Find more information about using masks to slow the spread of COVID-19 at the CDC website.
