The following new travel restrictions and guidance are now in place:

University travel is not permitted, except for travel paid through a research contract or by an external source. Any exceptions must be approved by the provost or a vice president. All university travel must follow CDC guidelines.

If you do travel outside of Colorado, you should self-monitor your symptoms for 14 days upon your return to Colorado and the Golden/Denver metro area.

  • You are permitted to work on campus while self-monitoring, but every effort should be made to work remotely during your self-monitoring period.
  • Self-monitoring means to check your health for COVID-19 symptoms twice a day. Symptoms include: Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle aches, sore throat and/or new loss of taste or smell. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should not come to work and/or campus and should follow the health screening procedures for when you can return.
  • All Mines employees working on campus will be required to self-report their health status daily before reporting to work. Online and paper forms are being developed for this purpose. These forms can also be used for twice-daily self-monitoring and reporting after traveling. Both forms will be posted prominently on the following Mines websites: Mines Climbs TogetherEnvironmental Health and Safety and Human Resources.

Anyone who travels to Colorado from another country is required to self-quarantine for 14 days before they are permitted in any university building or on university grounds. This includes international guests.

These expectations apply to both personal and business travel.
