COVID-19 Updates

Because the Colorado College community has a high rate of vaccination, classes, activities, and work are conducted in person by default.

Students: All students were tested for COVID-19 upon arrival to campus for the academic year. A percentage of fully vaccinated students are tested weekly. Frequency of testing will be adjusted as the situation changes.View our risk mitigation protocols for additional details. Students can schedule a COVID-19 test at the Student Health Center Scheduling Page.

Employees: All campus offices are open during regular office hours with full coverage and service available to students, staff and faculty, and families. View the FAQs and talk with your supervisor if you have questions or concerns. You may also contact hrcovid19@coloradocollege.edu.

 

Current Campus Requirements

Masks
All people on campus must wear a mask while in public spaces indoors, including for recreational use of the Adam F. Press Fitness Center. Following CDC guidance for masking in counties with substantial or high transmission, everyone on campus is currently required to wear masks indoors in group settings or public spaces. People in individual offices and students in their rooms need not wear a mask. We expect this will be temporary, until the high level of COVID-19 cases in the county declines.

COVID-19 Vaccination
CC requires all students, faculty, and staff who are accessing campus for the 2021-22 academic year to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All members of the campus community are required to provide proof of vaccination or exemption.

Testing
All students are required to participate in ongoing COVID-19 testing. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated students are required to test twice weekly. A percentage of fully vaccinated students are tested weekly. Frequency of testing will be adjusted as the situation changes.

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to test twice weekly. Testing is available free of charge at the Student Health Center, and employees may test during regular work hours.

All members of the CC community are strongly encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 when feeling sick and should not come to class/work when feeling ill. Those who receive a positive test result will be asked to isolate. We will provide isolation rooms to students as needed.

Travel
All travelers must follow CDC travel guidance. Students who are not fully vaccinated must follow CDC travel guidance, which requires a week-long quarantine upon return, so they cannot travel during block break.

Students who travel with their classes for academic reasons or due to an emergency will be accommodated via daily testing for seven days upon return. Student athletes will follow NCAA guidelines for travel and participation requirements.

Support

We understand that this situation is causing anxiety for many people. There are numerous resources on campus for support and assistance, including the Counseling CenterChaplain's OfficeEmployee Assistance Planthe Butler Centerthe Advising Hub, and the Wellness Resource Center.

Colorado College continues to closely monitor developments in the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The president's Cabinet and the college's multi-disciplinary COVID-19 Emergency Response Team, working teams, and Scientific Advisory Group are meeting regularly to assess the situation and plan for impacts to our campus community.
