Health Protocols & Self-Assessment

En Español

Required Health Protocols

These protocols were developed to protect the health and safety of all Roadrunners. Please keep in mind that this is a shared responsibility. Each of us needs to act with a spirit of generosity and do our part to keep our community healthy.   

  • Perform a health assessment daily before coming to campus (see below). 
  • Wear a mask at all times on campus when in the presence of others.
    • Bandanas and buffs are not acceptable face coverings.

    • Face shields may be added with a mask, but cannot be used alone unless medically approved by the Health Center at Auraria.

    • While teaching, faculty may wear face shields if they can maintain a minimum of 12 feet from students during class. Once lecturing has concluded, the faculty member needs to wear a face mask.

  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer on the way in and out of buildings.  
  • Follow signage for designated entrances and exits 
  • Minimize touching of surfaces.  
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least six feet. 
  • No food-based events or gatherings will be allowed. 
  • Comply with posted signage in common areas.  
  • For employees, wipe down work surfaces often, but at least at the start and end of your time on campus with disinfectant and paper towels. Disinfectant will be available in classrooms.  
  • Comply with occupancy limits posted on elevators; maintain physical distancing if using the stairs.
