Staying informed about Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

The Department’s top priority is the health and safety of all students, educators and communities in Colorado. The department has compiled resources about Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) to help provide guidance to Institutions of Higher Education.

Colleges, universities and private occupational schools should work directly with their local public health agency and the Colorado Department of Health and Environment for guidance on COVID-19.

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) is the lead agency on response, working with local agencies. CDPHE’s webpage has up-to-date information on the number of confirmed cases and the everyday actions you can take to protect our communities.

As of July 16, 2020 and until further notice by Governor Jared Polis and CDPHE, masks are required in all indoor spaces in Colorado, including classrooms and all other postsecondary education buildings.
