COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol

70th Annual School Session | University of Colorado Boulder | July 18-30, 2021

The health and safety of GSBC students and faculty is our top priority. GSBC is working closely with the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) and the City of Boulder, and following official guidance offered by the State of Colorado and Centers for Disease Control to deliver an in-person session where classes, networking and campus living can be executed safely via rigorous health and safety measures.

GSBC constituents (students, faculty and staff) are guests of CU annually, and as such, will be expected to follow university protocol regarding COVID-19 safety and monitoring, regardless of how the pandemic is being handled elsewhere. According to a Jan. 13 statement, university safety measures currently include, “daily check-ins […], required use of face coverings when on campus, reduced density in campus buildings, social distancing in the classroom and proper ventilation.”

Current campus COVID-19 policy includes formalized weekly health monitoring where all students/faculty/staff must show proof of good health and may be required to provide negative COVID-19 test results if necessary. Ongoing public health initiatives will include contact tracing, and required quarantine and isolation periods for individuals affected on campus.

We understand the pandemic environment is ever-evolving, and the presence of vaccines may increase the likelihood for restrictions to change. Regardless of the circumstances, GSBC will ultimately be held to the health and safety standards that are subject to change at anytime based on Boulder County public health orders and CU Boulder response.
