Public Health Measures
The CU Boulder campus will become mask-optional at 6 a.m. on Monday, March 7. Note: masks will continue to be required after March 7 at the Wardenburg Health Center.
While masks are becoming optional on campus, we encourage those who prefer to do so to continue wearing them. Properly fitted N95 or KN95 masks remain an effective tool for preventing transmission, especially in conjunction with vaccination.
- CU Boulder is providing up to two N95 or KN95 masks to students, faculty and staff. They can be picked up at various distribution points around campus.
COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters
To comply with CU Boulder’s updated COVID-19 guidance, members of the campus community are required to receive a vaccine booster shot by Feb. 24 or five months after receiving the final dose of the original series, whichever is later.
Students, faculty and staff must upload proof of boosters or file for an exemption based on medical, ethical or moral grounds through the MyCUHealth portal. Individuals who previously submitted an exemption do not need to take further action at this time and will be considered in compliance with current university vaccine requirements.
Once you have submitted all required documentation, you will receive an automated confirmation email. If you have incomplete documentation or if additional information is needed, you will not receive a confirmation email and the immunizations team will contact you directly.
Only vaccines that are approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) will meet the CU vaccine requirements.
Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) is monitoring cases, outbreaks, hospitalization and other metrics and strongly recommends that all individuals 2+ wear masks in all indoor settings regardless of vaccination status during periods of high transmission.

We are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates at Folsom Field after a very challenging couple of years. Veteran journalist Tom Costello of NBC News will be this year’s speaker. Go Buffs!
We know that many of our students, faculty and staff have been affected by the Marshall Fire, and our university will do everything we can to provide support.
