    Reporting on COVID-19 exposure and testing is essential to our campus community. You must self-report your status if you fall into any of the following groups.

    • You believe you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.
    • You have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
    • You are under quarantine by direction of a public health agency or medical provider, and/or awaiting test results for COVID-19.
    • You have been informed by a public health agency or a medical provider that you have tested positive or are presumptively positive for COVID-19.

    If you fall into any of these groups, please take the following steps.

    1. Let your head of your business unit know immediately or your professor, if you’re a student.
    2. Follow the recommendations of the public health agency or medical provider. You must follow CDPHE guidance and self-quarantine for 2 weeks if you have had prolonged contact of 15 or more minutes, in close proximity of 6 feet or less, with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
    3. Submit your self report
    4. Contact the Auraria Health Center at 303-615-9999, and
    5. Do NOT come to campus

    These last three steps are especially important as we monitor the impact of COVID-19 within the campus community and beyond. Gathering pertinent health information is essential to the well-being of the campus community.
