Our CU Boulder testing, contact tracing and Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) collaborations alerted us this morning to a potential increase in positive COVID-19 cases among our on and off-campus students.
We are concerned with this likely increase in positive cases over the past 24 hours, and we anticipate the increase in confirmed positive cases will continue through the remainder of the week.
We expected spikes like this might occur and have planned for this possibility. As we did during the increase in off-campus cases earlier this summer, we are rapidly employing our testing, contact tracing and isolation protocols in partnership with BCPH to contain the potential for community spread.
The next few days will be critical to our ability to maintain our current operating status. It is imperative that we all continue to follow public health orders, avoid large gatherings, wear masks and practice physical distancing.
The measures we have put into place — wastewater monitoring, surveillance and diagnostic testing, contact tracing and isolation — have been working to help us identify potential outbreaks early, minimize the risk of community spread and care for our infected students.

Our proactive monitoring efforts have alerted us of potential new cases, providing an opportunity to take additional measures and prevent spread.
