COVID Safety Information

As the CDC provides new guidance COVID/FLU/Respiratory Virus, please take care of yourself, and the Pikes Peak community.  With that in mind, please:

Practice Proper Hygiene:
  • Wash your hands regularly.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Face masks are optional, and faculty/instructors and staff may choose to wear masks in the classroom or on campus. 
When you may have a respiratory virus such as COVID/FLU/Respiratory Virus ...

Stay home and away from others (including people you live with who are not sick) if you have respiratory virus symptoms that aren't better explained by another cause. These symptoms can include fever, chills, fatigue, cough, runny nose, and headache, among others.

  • You can go back to your normal activities when, for at least 24 hours, IF both are true:
    • Your symptoms are getting better overall, and
    • You have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication).

  • When you go back to your normal activities, take added precaution over the next 5 days, such as taking additional steps for cleaner air, hygiene, masks, physical distancing, and/or testing when you will be around other people indoors. 
    • Keep in mind that you may still be able to spread the virus that made you sick, even if you are feeling better. You are likely to be less contagious at this time, depending on factors like how long you were sick or how sick you were.
    • If you develop a fever or you start to feel worse after you have gone back to normal activities, stay home and away from others again until, for at least 24 hours, both are true: your symptoms are improving overall, and you have not had a fever (and are not using fever-reducing medication). Then take added precaution for the next 5 days. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate the well-being of those on our Pikes Peak State College campuses.
