Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is shifting Boulder County to the more restrictive Safer At Home Level Orange (formerly Safer at Home Level 3) on the state COVID-19 dial, effective Friday, Nov. 6. While the move dictates few operational changes for CU Boulder, based on the projected rise in COVID-19 cases in the Denver metro region, we are taking the following steps to provide additional flexibility for our students and their families:
While the surge of COVID-19 infections in the Denver metro area is concerning and it will take a substantial community-wide effort to bend the curve of infection back down, today’s announcement does not change our plans to offer in-person and hybrid learning experiences in spring 2021.
We will be hosting a virtual town hall for students, faculty, staff and Buff families at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 6, to discuss this announcement and provide a forum for asking questions. We encourage you to join us. Also, please visit the campus COVID-19 page for up-to-date information.
We continue to be grateful for your flexibility, patience and commitment as we’ve adapted together to an ever-evolving pandemic and worked to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. We will get through this as Buffs together.
