Students staying on campus over Thanksgiving break will be able to pick up a special Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday (delivered to students in quarantine/isolation rooms) with turkey and trimmings.
And, even though campus will be quiet, we’re still planning lots of virtual activities for students staying in residence halls, from social media competitions and games, to take-and-do activities students can pick up at their front desks.
Student Health Center Operations
The Student Health Center will be closed from Nov. 25-29. Starting on Monday, Nov. 30, the center will open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
View their clinic hours for alternate care providers when the health center is closed or call your insurance carrier for providers in your network.
Community Testing Kiosk
The state is encouraging all Coloradans with symptoms to get tested immediately. COVID-19 testing kiosks that are quick, easy and free to all students, staff and community members.
The largest driver of case growth is small private gatherings. As we approach the holidays, it’s important to think about ways to keep our family, friends and our communities safe.
