The following message was sent to all Mines students, faculty and staff on 4/22/20:

Dear Mines Community:

Mines has received confirmation of a new positive case of COVID-19 among our campus community.

The individual was last on campus April 15. Those on campus with whom this employee had close contact have been notified and are expected to self-quarantine for 14 days. If you have not been notified, you have not been identified as a person who had close contact with the individual.

As a reminder, a statewide Stay-at-Home Order is still in place that requires all Colorado residents to stay in their homes as much as possible through April 26, with very limited exceptions. While institutions of higher education are identified as critical businesses and allowed to maintain operations, only the minimum number of employees required to keep campus safe and remote learning up-and-running are permitted on campus.

For additional resources, including what you should do if you show symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath) or are asymptomatic but have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has COVID-19 symptoms, go to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s COVID-19 resource site. 

Mines continues to work closely with local health officials and is implementing precautions to keep our community safe as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
