Covid-19 Protocol, Resources and Information

No current Covid-19 requirements

As new Covid-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths remain low in Denver and across the state, Metropolitan State University of Denver has currently suspended all Covid-19 protocols and requirements. The decision to pause the requirements was made in consultation with state and local public health officials and with input from stakeholders across campus, following successful prevention and mitigation efforts including the administration of more than 36,000 vaccine doses at the Health Center at Auraria.

The suspension includes all Covid-19 vaccine requirements for students and employees as well as any related registration holds for student non-compliance. Students and employees will no longer need to show proof of receiving the vaccine or apply for an exemption. No further action is needed from either current students or employees at this time.

If public health conditions demand, requirements may be reinstituted at any time. To safeguard your health, please stay up to date on your Covid-19 vaccinations.

As of June 30:

  • Members of the campus community will no longer be directed to Primary Health for scheduling services. The Health Center at Auraria will now manage all scheduling of on-campus Covid-19 testing and vaccination appointments 
  • Covid-19 vaccines will be provided at no cost to students, employees and immediate family members and/or household members only. 
  • Covid-19 testing for all students, employees and immediate family members and/or household members will no longer be covered at 100% after July 15. Patients are asked to verify their insurance coverage to determine their cost. 
  • Testing and vaccination services will no longer be offered to members of the broader community unless they are family/household members of a campus constituent.
  • All testing and vaccination operations in the 5th Street Garage are closed. 

Roadrunner Expectations

Regardless of these changes, Roadrunners are expected to: 

  • Stay up to date on Covid-19 vaccinations and all immunizations to safeguard both personal and public health  
  • Stay home when feeling ill, whether with COVID-19 or not, to recover and prevent community spread 
  • Report any cases/exposures to the Health Center at Auraria 
  • Remain flexible, as certain protocols may be reinstated as public health conditions necessitate 
  • Be kind and act respectfully around others by continuing to carry a mask and be prepared to wear it when asked
