CSU has secured a central supply of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies for use during the summer and fall semester:
Protocols and procedures for distributing these supplies as needed will be in place to ensure strategic use to preserve the University’s resources.
When positive COVID-19 cases are discovered, CSU coordinates with Larimer County (or other appropriate counties) on necessary public health steps such as quarantine, self-isolation, etc., as well as disinfecting spaces as needed.
CSU uses contact tracing software that is also used by the Larimer County and other Colorado public health agencies, greatly enhancing speed, coordination and communication about exposures that potentially impact faculty, staff and students.
When an individual on a CSU campus tests positive for COVID-19, they must self-isolate while seeking appropriate medical care. CSU has a plan for those living in university housing who need to self-isolate or quarantine.
CSU is reviewing current guidance as well as public health guidance as it impacts equity issues among our community members, such as the cost and availability of testing. We will provide more information soon.
CSU has surveyed hundreds of spaces for physical distancing capacity and furniture needs to assure best practices in the configuration of those spaces to meet public health guidance.
The University will follow public health orders regarding building occupancy.
All students, faculty and instructors will be required to follow state and county public health orders, guidance, protocols and University policies while on University grounds and in all buildings, including classrooms, laboratories and living, research and service spaces. These include:
Extra precautions, procedures and measures will be necessary to create healthy spaces for in-person learning to take place on campus.
