“This is a temporary situation but it could become permanent if we continue to disregard public health guidelines,” Chancellor Philip DiStefano said.

“Staff will continue to work on campus as currently assigned. On-campus research will continue and is not affected by this shift to remote instruction,” the university said in a tweet on Monday.

Classes will continue as planned today and Tuesday, Sept. 22.

“Even though it’s not the best, when it comes to learning and understanding, I think I like in-person better. But if it’s to keep the campus safe and the students safe that’s a good idea,” student Emma Nayonkah said.

As of Friday, the total number of COVID-19 cases at CU Boulder was 765. The university said 68% of the campus isolation units were being used.  

The school also announced Monday that students who are put in isolation and violate that will be suspended.

“That would be a student within a residence hall who has been ordered to be in isolation which means being in a room rather than out in the common areas,” Interim Executive Vice Chancellor Patrick O’Rourke said.

So far 14 students have been suspended for violating isolation orders.
