CU Boulder has returned to REQUIRING MASKS in PUBLIC INDOOR SPACES regardless of vaccination status as of August 13, 2021.

Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) issued Public Health Order 2021-08 requiring mask wearing in all indoor public spaces for all individuals 2 years and older regardless of vaccination status effective September 3, 2021.

We’ve maximized the airflow and filtration of our HVAC systems by utilizing the same measures CU implemented during the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Additionally, we have HEPA filters in the planetarium, so you may notice some minimal ambient noise during shows.

Purchase online tickets in advance for a touchless experience. Practice good hygiene during your visit by washing your hands or using the sanitization stations. No food or drinks are allowed in the planetarium theater (sealable reusable water bottle are allowed). Bring your own reusable water bottle to use at the automatic, contactless water bottle filling station (water fountains have been disabled for your safety).

We’ve increased our cleaning protocols for high-touch surfaces in the lobby and targeted areas in theater. Theater seats will be cleaned between all shows. To reduce risk we’ve removed many of our hands-on exhibits. While the risk from contaminated surfaces is extremely low, we’re doing everything possible to keep you safe.

We're operating at 50% capacity (100 seats) in the planetarium theater to provide a comfortable transition back to our immersive fulldome space. This will ensure more space to physically distance and reduce crowding.
