Chancellor DiStefano announces we are welcoming students back to CU Boulder for a COVID-19 ready fall semester with a flexible, in-person experience designed for safety, ensures access and quality for our students and moves the campus forward.
CU Boulder is continuously updating its information and guidance for the university community to address the changing status of COVID-19. This page is intended to provide information about COVID-19 and its impacts to CU Boulder, precautions that are being taken, prevention measures you can take and a compilation of frequently asked questions.
CU Boulder leadership announced a phased approach beginning May 26 for employees to return to work on campus. It’s important that we continue to minimize the number of people coming to campus and research facilities, and that we take actions to prevent opportunities for infection. Depending on their roles and personal circumstances, some employees will continue to work remotely for an extended period. Critical services employees will continue their work schedule in consultation with their supervisors.
Planning for Return to Work
Protocols are being developed for units to follow once employees begin to return to campus. These protocols will address safety, health and wellness precautions in alignment with guidance from the CDC and local public health officials. As employees return to campus, we’ll be looking at modifications to work schedules, changes in the work environment and other measures to keep our community safe. Departments should not develop individual safety, health and wellness protocols in preparation for employees returning to on-campus work.
Daily Health Questionnaire and Illness Reporting Form
All faculty, staff, student employees and unpaid student researchers who are approved to return to campus for work should fill out this form each day before they come to campus.
For information about the measures being taken to keep our buildings safe and minimize the risk of virus transmission, visit the Infrastructure Mitigation Efforts page. A cross-functional campus Facilities Task Force is addressing issues related to ventilation, barriers, physical distancing in classrooms, directional hallways and more.

Help communicate accurate information. Please assist in dispelling misinformation and rumors, particularly on social media.
Show your care for each other. Based on fear of the virus, people can make the mistake of attributing it to entire groups of people, and this can lead to bias and prejudice. The university has received reports of instances where individuals on our campus have felt unwelcome, excluded or targeted. We are stronger as a community when we work together to stand against racism, discrimination and harassment—which has no place on our campus. Don’t Ignore It.
