Re-entry Protocols

Upon return from travel, members of the campus community must abide by these Enhanced Social Distancing Protocols:
Get tested upon arrival return to campus and adhere to enhanced social distancing protocols for 10 days until receiving a second negative COVID test result. This includes these additional risk mitigation protocols:
  • Reducing your interactions to your roommate(s)/members of your household until you get your test result
  • For students, stay in your room unless you are picking up food on campus.
  • For employees, do not hold in-person meetings or classes; do not interact except with those in your household. Employees are required to isolate for seven days following travel. 
  • Not entering buildings on or off campus other than your residence or to pick up food on campus. Shop for and bring room needs with you, rather than shopping after arrival.
  • Exercising individually and safely outdoors on campus while wearing a mask.
  • Those engaging in local travel should follow standard risk mitigation practices/public health best practices as usual and self quarantine if they think they have been exposed.

Regular Virus Risk Mitigation Protocols

Once receiving a second negative COVID test result, shift to our regular virus risk mitigation protocols, which will be implemented until further notice:

  • Wearing a mask when outside residence hall room or apartment.
  • Maintaining at least six feet of distance from others not also living in residence hall room or apartment.
  • Students approved to be on campus are not allowed to host guests.
  • Once granted access to Colorado College,   whether living on campus, or living off campus and having access to campus , students may not travel out of the state of Colorado at any time. If they do so, they will not be allowed to return to campus and must take classes remotely.
  • Any student who tests positive for COVID-19 must participate in contact tracing so others who have been exposed may be notified and to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to more people.
  • Students who test positive for COVID-19 must  follow isolation and quarantine procedures.
  • On-campus students are expected to check their own temperature before going to areas of campus that are not their residence. Students should stay in their room if sick or experiencing mild symptoms consistent with COVID-19 such as fever or chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. They should immediately contact the Student Health Center, (719) 389-6384, and report any symptoms of COVID-19 to Here’s how to arrange a COVID-19 test.

Emergency Response Fund

For Students

Learn about requesting support from the (COVID-19) Coronavirus Emergency Response Fund

For Others

Because many in the Colorado College community asked how they can help, we have established the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund to meet needs during these uncertain times. Many of our alumni, parents, and friends, as well as members of our Board of Trustees and the president's cabinet, have contributed. The fund also provides the college with resources to respond to unexpected expenses developing during this crisis and for lost revenue.
