Yesterday, the chancellor announced an immediate stay-at-home notice for CU Boulder students. This stay-at-home notice is a 14-day quarantine period for students, which limits activity outside of classes, work, getting food, medical care, exercise and other critical functions. CU Boulder will be enforcing this measure, which expires at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

We have seen a spike in positive COVID cases and this message is a reminder of the critical importance for our community to continue to follow health and safety interventions. 

We need your help to stop the spread. Encourage your student to follow this important public health recommendation

Stay-at-home notice
Students are asked to remain at home or in their residence hall for the next two weeks. They may leave to attend in-person classes or work, conduct time-sensitive research, exercise, or to get food, medicine or emergency supplies. Learn more about voluntary quarantine guidelines and expectations

Mental health resources on campus Conduct expectations
The stay-at-home notice is not an emergency order, but requires immediate behavior changes. For students who choose to ignore this recommendation and are caught hosting or attending large gatherings, increased enforcement has already begun. Learn more about student conduct expectations
Mental health resources on campus COVID testing and monitoring
Campus testing options are available for students living on and off campus who are symptomatic, as well as those who may have been exposed. Boulder County is also offering COVID-19 testing to all residents. Students living on campus are also required to participate in the weekly COVID monitoring program

The rules and recommendations of isolation and quarantine can be confusing. Learn more about quarantine, isolation and what your student should do. We also provide steps for isolating and support whether your student lives on- or off-campus. 
Mental health resources on campus On-campus housing
Students living in the residence halls or Bear Creek apartments will continue to be supported during this time. Campus Dining Services will continue to serve residence hall students. Locations and hours are not changing, and we are even adding new options like the new made-to-order salad bar in the C4C! Housing and Residence Life staff will be available for support and assistance.
Mental health resources on campus Off-campus housing
Campus leadership is working closely with city, county and state partners to deploy new testing options for students who live off-campus. Encourage your student to be a good neighbor by following health, firework, trash and other city ordinances. If your student has questions they can reach out to Off-Campus Housing and Neighborhood Relations.

Physical distancing, quarantine and isolation measures can make it harder to stay connected with others. Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) is offering a free virtual COVID-19 workshop series. CAPS is also available for crisis support, brief individual counseling, psychiatry, consultations and other mental health services.
Mental health resources on campus Student involvement
Virtual events are a great opportunity to get involved, meet fellow Buffs and have some fun. Students can participate in a variety of events like painting classes, Netflix watch parties and fitness classes all from home. Remind your student to view the Fall Events website to stay in-the-know
