FAQs

See below for answers to frequently asked questions related to COVID-19. Additional answers will be posted and updated as information is confirmed and available.

If you experience symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

Students should schedule a COVID-19 test at the Student Health Center if feeling ill or experiencing COVID or flu-like symptoms. Call the Student Health Center, (719) 389-6384, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. for same-day symptomatic testing. No appointment with a provider is required. If you receive a positive test result, the COVID-19 Coordinator, (719) 413-9588, will contact you. Students should also contact their professor to discuss their needs for support, adaptation, or assistance with class. 

Student Health Center Hours

Monday-Friday:
8 a.m.-noon and 1-7 p.m.

Saturday & Sunday:
11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Employees should contact their healthcare provider to determine what tests and treatment are appropriate. They should also contact their supervisor. 

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

What protocols have been put in place to mitigate risk?
Read more about our Risk Mitigation Plan.

Are masks required on campus?
Following CDC guidance for masking in counties with substantial or high transmission, everyone on campus, regardless of vaccination status, is currently required to wear masks when inside campus buildings, including for recreational use of the Adam F. Press Fitness Center. For added protection, it is required for anyone on campus to use KN95 masks (or similar, aerosol filtering masks such as N95, KF94, or FFP2) in all indoor public spaces. People in individual offices need not wear a mask in a private office with a closed door when no one else is present. Masks also are not required when students are alone in their rooms or with only their roommates.

When traveling back to campus from Winter Break, it is recommended that students wear an N95 mask if possible (or a similar high-filtration mask such as KN95, KF94, or FFP2) in airports, on planes, and when interacting with others to reduce their risk of infection.

Students who are residents of Loomis, Mathias, and South halls may pick up KN95 masks, as well as their test kits and isolation kit, at their residence hall front desks. All other students may pick up their masks, test kits, and isolation kit at the Worner Desk or Tutt Library.

KN95 masks for staff and faculty will be distributed by department/division. Each employee will be issued three KN95 masks/week. Any additional masks will be distributed to employees as needed. If you wish, you may purchase your own masks via local and online suppliers. If you have your own KN95 masks (or similar high-filtration masks, such as N95, KF94, or FFP2), you may wear them.

What dining options are available to students? 
Through at least J Block (Jan. 21), all dining on campus is takeout only. This decision will be reevaluated at that time. All campus dining locations are open during normal hours for take-out meal service.

Students in isolation must pick up meals at the exterior entrance of Coburn Gallery at the south doors of Worner Campus Center between 1-3 p.m. and must wear an N95 mask when picking up meals. Meals will be delivered only to students who are too ill to pick up meals themselves.

What options are available to students who do not wish to attend classes in person? Can they still complete their coursework remotely? 
Classes are being held in person. Professors may move their class to remote learning temporarily to accommodate students in isolation or to address other needs specific to the course. Students should reach out to their professor directly if they do not feel well or have received a positive test result to discuss the need for support, adaptation, or assistance with their classes. 

What policies are in place regarding college-related travel?
All travelers must follow CDC travel guidance for domestic and international travel.

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 receive a positive test result before a break (including block breaks and Spring Break) may not be able to travel due to required isolation periods, per the local health department (see the ‘Isolation/Quarantine Procedures’ section below).

  • The health department allows travel by personal vehicle if students travel home to isolate. The destination should not be farther away than what would require one tank of gas, limiting interaction and transmission. 
  • Students who travel to another location must continue and complete isolation there. 
  • Other people at the destination should be made aware of the risk of transmission.
  • Students who receive a positive COVID test and who disregard isolation rules and travel by plane or public transportation can be put on a “No Board” list.
  • Those students who do not cooperate with contact tracers or who do not adhere to travel protocols as after receiving a positive test result will be referred to the Community Standards & Conduct process.

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.

What do you plan to do over breaks with the students who can’t travel home because they received a positive COVID-19 test result? 
Students who are in isolation will continue to receive meals, mail, and medication, and regular check-ins from our COVID-19 response team.

What should I do if I receive a positive test result over a break?
If you receive positive COVID-19 test results during a break, follow isolation protocols and contact the COVID-19 Coordinator, (719) 413-9588.

Are visitors allowed on campus?
Colorado College departments and programs may decide to welcome visitors to campus. This includes college-sponsored visitors such as visiting scholars, athletic teams, guest speakers, VIPs, prospective students and families — and visitors who are invited to campus by faculty, staff, or students.

All visitors must understand and abide by current college policies and are required to wear a KN95 or similar filtration mask indoors during their visit. Visitors must not come to campus if they are experiencing symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days, or have otherwise been instructed to quarantine or isolate. All visitors are expected to report positive COVID-19 test results immediately to the college's COVID Response Coordinator at (719) 413-9588 if they have been on campus within 48 hours of symptom onset or have received a positive COVID-19 test result.

Host departments should keep logs of when official visitors were onsite and their contact information to aid in contact tracing efforts. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors are encouraged to receive a COVID-19 test prior to arrival at their own expense.

Please note that individuals (including visitors) attending public events must follow the college’s public events policy (click the ‘Public Events’ dropdown). For information about guests in residence halls, please see the college’s current Housing COVID Guest Policy.

Are members of the public allowed on campus for events?
All members of the public age 12 or older attending a Colorado College-sponsored, indoor public event are required to present proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test result, along with a valid photo ID. All attendees age three or older are required to wear a KN95 or similar filtration mask indoors at all times. To further reduce risk, no food or drink/concessions are available at events until further notice. This applies to all attendees of public events who are not members of the CC community. 

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes a CDC vaccination card, a photo of the card, or a digital vaccine record. Vaccination documentation must indicate that attendees are fully vaccinated, having received their final dose at least two weeks prior to the day of the event. Unvaccinated attendees may show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event. Attendees younger than 12 years old do not need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result but must adhere to the college’s indoor mask policy (three years or older) and be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult or an adult providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Staff will verify proof upon entry.

Documentation will not be collected or stored by the college. Colorado College students, employees, and other Gold Card holders who have already met this requirement may use their Gold Cards as proof of vaccination/negative COVID-19 test.

What guidance is in place when interacting with the wider Colorado Springs community?
The CC community has significant protection through high vaccination coverage, but the same is not yet true for El Paso County.

Students should have no unmasked interactions indoors with non-household members; no parties; and should pick a small “pod” of up to five friends to spend time with. Choose outdoor activities, as they are much lower risk.

Check this website to learn whether El Paso County is currently classified as a substantial/high transmission county and follow CDC masking guidance.

Why don’t you update the CC COVID-19 Dashboard more frequently, especially when there is an increase in cases?
The figures currently displayed in the CC COVID-19 dashboard are updated each Wednesday morning to encompass the prior week’s testing data. The intent has been to provide final weekly figures in accordance with the dates utilized by El Paso County Public Health Department. 

How available are tests?
Testing is available for students every day of the week. If you are a student and you are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms, please schedule a COVID-19 test at the Student Health Center. Call the Student Health Center, (719) 389-6384, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. for same-day symptomatic testing. No appointment with a provider is required. If you receive a positive test result, the COVID-19 Coordinator, (719) 413-9588, will contact you.

Monday-Friday:
8 a.m.-noon and 1-7 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday:
11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Employees experiencing COVID-like symptoms should contact their personal healthcare provider, who will determine the need for testing and treatment.

Are testing hours at the Student Health Center only available during the same hours as class? 
No. The Student Health Center is available for testing symptomatic students outside of class hours; it is open 8 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-7 p.m., Mon.-Fri. and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sat.-Sun. In addition, COVID testing can be obtained at many locations in Colorado Springs.

What is the plan for testing when students return from Winter Break?
Students are strongly encouraged to get tested BEFORE traveling back to campus from Winter Break. Check with your local health department for free testing sites. Test as close as possible to departure. Students who receive a positive test result should complete isolation at home. Pre-arrival testing helps to ensure that you are not putting others at risk during transit.

All students will also take a COVID-19 test when they arrive on campus in January, ahead of J-Block, Half Block, or Block 5, based on the student’s schedule. Students will receive an email from covid19@coloradocollege.edu about when to pick up test kits, KN95 masks, and an isolation kit. The isolation kit includes one N95 mask (to be used only during isolation) and isolation instructions to keep with your isolation bag.

  • Residents of Loomis, Mathias, and South halls may pick up their test kits, masks, and isolation kit at their residence hall front desks.
  • All other students may pick up their test kits, masks, and isolation kit at the Worner Desk or Tutt Library.
  • Symptomatic students may not pick up test kits; they must contact the Student Health Center at (719) 389-6384 for testing.

Is the COVID test on campus an antigen test, PCR test, or something else?
The Student Health Center uses the Abbott ID Now test. The test uses technology similar to a PCR test; i.e. it detects viral RNA through an amplification process (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test, NAAT). It has high sensitivity/specificity and short turnaround time (15 minutes). Students receive their test results through the FollowMyHealth app.

How is the college conducting ongoing screening/asymptomatic testing?
The COVID-19 asymptomatic screening testing program is administered by eMed, a telehealth provider. All students, regardless of vaccination status, will test twice weekly via eMed through Block 5. This also includes those who have previously received positive COVID-19 test results. Students must participate in testing to maintain Gold Card access. 

Students can pick up BinaxNow test kits at the Tutt Library circulation desk. You must bring and swipe your Gold Card to pick up test kits. Symptomatic students may not pick up test kits; they must contact the Student Health Center at (719) 389-6384 for testing.

Students will self-administer the test, e.g., in their room, supervised by eMed through a telehealth session. Students, please do not open the test kit before being prompted to do so during the telehealth session to make sure your test is recorded and counts toward the testing requirement. Please watch this short video to learn more about how to start your telehealth session and administer the test.

Twice weekly testing is recommended for all faculty and staff during the Omicron wave. Faculty and staff should register for the CDPHE at-home testing program and order test kits periodically. Additional BinaxNow or FlowFlex at-home test kits (two tests per week per employee) will be available to faculty and staff from the Worner Desk. To help keep track of inventory, please fill out this test kit request form. Make sure to bring your Gold Card when picking up test kits. All positive results must be submitted using this form.

What kind of test does CC use for screening testing? 
The BinaxNow COVID-19 Ag Card is an antigen test. The sample is an anterior nasal swab. Antigen tests (not to be confused with antibody tests) detect COVID-19 infections very reliably during the infectious period, making them an excellent tool for screening testing. Their tendency not to pick up prior infections after recovery will help to reduce isolation needs.

Because some false positive results are to be expected, all positive antigen test results are followed up by a molecular test at the Student Health Center located in the Yalich Student Services Center.  

How is the test administered? 
Students self-administer the test, supervised by a telehealth provider, eMed. 

How will students receive test results? 
Students will receive test results via the Navica app as well as via email.  

What happens if I receive a positive BinaxNow test result through eMed? 
If you’ve received a positive test result, put on your mask (unless you are in your room by yourself with the door closed) and stay away from others. Our COVID-19 response coordinator will call you and discuss next steps. Students will need to schedule a follow-up test at the Student Health Center to confirm the test result. Do NOT go to the Student Health Center before speaking with a COVID-19 response team member. All positive test results will be followed up with a molecular test at the Student Health Center, located in the Yalich Student Services Center. Please stay near your phone.  

  • If the follow-up test is positive, the COVID-19 Response Team will help you with isolation housing needs, prescriptions, and other needs.
  • Students should contact their professor to discuss their needs for support, adaptation, or assistance with class.  
  • If the follow-up test is negative, you have no symptoms, and there’s been no known exposure, you will not need to isolate. 

Is testing still available at Boettcher? 
No. However, the Student Health Center, located in the Yalich Student Services Center, will continue providing tests for symptomatic COVID-19 testing, testing after exposure, and follow-up testing to positive antigen tests.  

What should I do if I have symptoms?
See the Health section of the Risk Mitigation page.

Can I use these test results for travel, attending events, etc.? 
Yes. Simply show your test result on the Navica app. 

Who has access to the test results? 
Each student has access to their own test results via the Navica app; eMed reports the test results to the county health department (required) and CC. At CC, the Testing Team, the Student Health Center, and the COVID-19 Response Team have access to the test results.

Is the Student Health Center staffed enough?
Yes.

Where can I find CC’s written guidelines for how to manage a student who has received a positive COVID-19 test result? 
All COVID protocols and updates are on the college’s COVID-19 Updates & Risk Mitigation webpage, which is linked via a banner on every page of the CC website. Specific information about what happens if a student receives a positive test result is included in the “Isolation” section.

Vaccine information from the State of Colorado

Are vaccinations required for the Colorado College community?
CC requires all students, faculty, and staff who are accessing campus for the 2021-22 academic year to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including a booster dose. We consider requests for vaccine exemptions for medical, religious, and personal reasons. There are no exemptions for booster shots. All members of the campus community are required to provide proof of vaccination or exemption. All vaccines that have received emergency use authorization from the World Health Organization are accepted.

How do students submit proof of vaccination?
Students can submit vaccination paperwork via SUMMIT. The Immunization/Health information website provides links to the Student SUMMIT portals, as well as exemption forms and instructions.  

How do employees submit proof of vaccination?
Follow these instructions to load your documentation to the vaccination portal.

Follow these detailed instructions to upload your booster documentation to the portal.

What does it mean to be fully vaccinated?
People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • Two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 
  • Two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

Am I required to get a COVID-19 booster?
Colorado College students, staff, and faculty who are eligible are required to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster. If not yet eligible, you must receive your booster as soon as you are eligible. You may choose which vaccine you receive as a booster dose. CDC recommendations allow for mixing and matching booster shots. Find a vaccine provider near you. View Colorado resident-specific and CDC guidance and recommendations about boosters.

All members of the CC community are also encouraged to get a flu shot. It is safe to receive a flu shot and your COVID-19 booster dose at the same appointment.

If I have an exemption from receiving the vaccine, do I need to get a booster?
Students and employees with exemptions are not required to get a booster. 

If I have had COVID-19, do I need to get a booster?
Yes. All students and employees who are eligible are required to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster. If not yet eligible, you must receive your booster as soon as you are eligible. 

I am vaccinated and am requesting an exemption from the booster. How do I apply for that exemption?
All vaccinated students and employees who are eligible are required to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster. There are no exemptions for the booster.

Can I come to campus before I get my booster dose?
Yes, you can continue to come to campus before getting your booster; make sure to follow all risk mitigation protocols and upload your booster information as soon as possible.

Will CC pay for boosters?
COVID boosters are paid through the college’s Cigna health plan. If you don’t have health insurance, you should be able to get a free booster at the El Paso County Health Department or a pharmacy like Safeway, King Soopers, Walgreens, CVS, etc.

If a student receives the first dose of the vaccine in another state, can they receive their second dose in Colorado?
Yes. Students should contact covid19@coloradocollege.edu to request information about setting up a second dose with UC Health.

Do I still need to wear a mask, socially distance, wash my hands frequently, and avoid crowds after getting the vaccine?
All people on campus must wear a KN95 mask (or a similar, aerosol-filtering mask such as N95, KF94 or FFP2) while in public spaces indoors, including for recreational use of the Adam F. Press Fitness Center. 

Given CC’s highly vaccinated community and layered mitigation system, physical distancing is not required. People who are vulnerable to severe illness may wish to continue physical distancing.

We encourage everyone to avoid indoor gatherings, wear a KN95 or similar filtration mask indoors when not at home, and prioritize outdoor activities. Coronavirus spreads through the air through breathing, particularly in indoor spaces where aerosols tend to accumulate, and even seemingly healthy people can transmit the virus.

If vaccinations are mandatory, why is the community not 100% vaccinated — including students, professors, and staff? Is it easy to make up an exemption?
All members of the campus community are required to show proof of vaccination or exemption; some people cannot receive the vaccination due to health issues or religious beliefs. This is the same process that we follow for the MMR vaccination. The vast majority of students, faculty, and staff are fully vaccinated. ​

 _CC-COMS-GeneralSafetyMessages-DigitalSigns-2020-IsolationQuaran.png

What does quarantine mean?
Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

What does isolation mean? 
Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.

When will quarantining be required?
CC follows CDC guidance on quarantine for individuals who have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with a person who has COVID-19. Mask wearing does not affect the close contact definition.

If you are up to date with vaccinations (boosted OR within five months of completing Pfizer or Moderna series OR within two months from receiving J&J) and no symptoms are present: 

  • Mask for 10 days*. 
  • Test with an antigen test on day five. 
    • If negative, continue masking until day 10*. 
    • If positive, follow isolation protocol (see ‘Isolation’ section below). 
  • If symptoms develop, test. If positive, follow isolation protocol (see ‘Isolation’ section below). 

If you are not up to date with vaccinations (eligible but haven’t yet received a booster dose OR unvaccinated) and no symptoms are present:  

  • Quarantine for five days. 
  • Test with an antigen test on day five.  
    • If negative, continue masking until day 10*.  
    • If positive, follow isolation protocol (see ‘Isolation’ section below). 
  • If symptoms develop, test. If positive, follow isolation protocol (see ‘Isolation’ section below). 

*Per CDC guidance, this means masking at home and in public when around others indoors. No travel and no visits to restaurants or places where masking is not feasible. 

Students should quarantine in place and continue regular testing.

Students in quarantine should notify their professor and discuss with them the need for support, adaptation, or assistance with the course.

Close contacts of close contacts do not need to quarantine.

When will isolation be required?
CC follows CDC guidance for isolation. Students should quarantine in place and continue regular testing.

For students, faculty, and staff who receive positive COVID-19 test results, if you have no symptoms on day five and are fever-free for 24 hours without medication: 

  • Test with an antigen test on day five.
    • If negative, end isolation period. Mask until day 10*. 
    • If positive, continue isolating until day 10. 

If symptomatic, isolate until symptoms have resolved and fever has resolved for 24 hours without medication. Mask until day 10*. 

*Per CDC guidance, this means masking means at home and in public when around others indoors. No travel and no visits to restaurants or places where masking is not feasible. 

Contact tracers will conduct daily check-ins and refer students to additional support services. Students in isolation should notify their professor and discuss with them the need for support, adaptation, or assistance with the course.

What meals are provided to students in isolation?
Students in isolation can pick up meals at the exterior entrance of Coburn Gallery at the south doors of Worner Campus Center between 1-3 p.m. and must wear an N95 mask when picking up meals. Meals are delivered only to students who are too ill to pick up meals themselves.

Who is checking on students in isolation?
A campus wellness contact is assigned to every student. They check-in on students daily and make sure all student needs are met.

How do students get mail while in isolation?
Students should schedule an appointment and a member of Mail Services will meet them outside the Mail Center, 819 N. Tejon, at the scheduled time. Student will still need a photo ID and they will need to be wearing a mask. If they do not have a mask on, the package or mail will not be delivered to them. In order to accommodate all students, please schedule only one appointment per day. Multiple appointments for the same person in the same day will not be honored. If a student is too sick to walk to the Mail Center, please email mailservices@coloradocollege.edu to make other arrangements.

What are the guidelines for roommates who share space with a student who has received a positive COVID test?
See information above regarding quarantine and isolation. Our contact tracers provide all information to students. 

What programs do you have to support the mental health of the students during an increase in COVID cases?
See our wellness and mental health resources. We provide a broad range of support services: counseling, the Wellness Resource Center, the Chaplain’s Office, Advising Hub, Butler Center, and other support offices.

What is the college doing regarding contact tracing?
We have consistently carried out contact tracing since the beginning of the pandemic, and will continue to do so. Contact tracing will be aided by an electronic intake form. The contact tracing team will send students with positive test results a link to the form. Students are expected to fill in the form with as detailed information as possible. All employees must self-report positive test via Qualtrics.

Who conducts contact tracing?
The COVID Response Team will continue conducting contact tracing of infections among the CC community. Contact tracers reach out to people identified as close contacts of community members with COVID-19. If a student receives a positive test result, the whole class will not be notified — only the students in the most immediate, 6-foot-or-less radius are considered close contacts. All CC community members are expected to cooperate with CC and county contact tracers. Those students who do not cooperate with contact tracers will be referred to the Community Standards & Conduct process.

Community messages regarding positive COVID-19 cases on campus will be distributed only if the individual(s) who received a positive test result attended a large event where contact tracing is not possible. The COVID-19 Data Dashboard continues to serve as a central data repository for testing data, campus exposure metrics, and vaccination rates.

Why are students who are in the same class as someone who tests positive not notified as part of the contact tracing process?
Only people who were within six feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes cumulatively over 24 hours (i.e. fits the CDC definition of a close contact), are notified in contact tracing. So, if someone passed somebody in the hallway, they will not be notified. If a student in a classroom receives a positive test result, only those who interacted with that student in a six-foot-or-less radius are categorized as close contacts.

Why are students who share the same residence hall and bathrooms not notified if someone tests positive in their hall? 
Only close contacts (someone who has been within six feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) are notified.

View the Tuition and Financial Aid FAQs that the Student Accounts Office has developed for more information. 

Student athletes will follow NCAA guidelines for travel and participation requirements. See the CC Tigers website for more information.

What should I do if I can’t get a booster shot in my home country?
International students (and all who don't have access to vaccines at home) can return to campus and get their booster doses in Colorado. Please contact Heather Horton to inform her you when you will be returning to campus and that you will be getting your booster shot here. Find a vaccine provider near campus.

Can I still return to campus if I can’t upload my booster shot documentation by Jan. 3?
Yes, you can return to campus even if you are unable to upload your booster documentation by the Jan. 3 deadline. Please contact Heather Horton to inform her of your plans, and get your booster and upload your documentation as soon as you are able. Students should follow the instructions on Immunization and Health Documentation to upload booster documentation. 

What should I do if I have received a non-FDA authorized vaccine and am not eligible for a booster shot?
Follow CDC guidance for people who have received a COVID-19 vaccination outside of the United States.

CDC-recs-flow-chart-re-non-FDA-vaccines-and-boosters.jpg

How do I know if I'm eligible to board a flight to the U.S.?
Please consult the Centers for Disease Control to determine COVID-19 travel requirements and eligibility to enter the U.S. 

What is required for proof of COVID-19 vaccination for non-U.S. citizen, nonimmigrant passengers air passengers entering the U.S.?
Please see follow CDC guidance to know what is required for non-U.S. citizen, nonimmigrant passengers arriving from a foreign country by air.   

What are accepted COVID-19 vaccines for entry into the U.S.?
See the CDC's list of accepted COVID-19 vaccines. 

What documentation can I show for a negative COVID-19 test or documentation from recovery from COVID-19 in order to enter the U.S. by air?
All air passengers eligible for entry into the United States, regardless of vaccination status, must show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than one day before travel to the United States with limited exceptions or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days.
