Coronavirus Information

Spring 2021 Campus and Course Information

Most spring 2021 classes at the Community College of Aurora are being offered online/remotely. This decision was made for two main reasons: 1) to allow you to be able to start or continue your education in the safest way possible, and 2) to minimize stress and disruption in your lives. 

This page contains information on what the spring semester will look like, what course formats will be offered, CCA’s on-campus health and safety protocols, COVID-19 testing information, and more. It will be updated throughout the spring semester, so please check in when you can for important updates.

March 1, 2021 Update: CCA TO OFFER IN-PERSON SERVICES STARTING MARCH 1 

The Community College of Aurora will once again offer in-person student services starting Monday, March 1.

This decision was made because we know most of you, our students, prefer in-person services over online/remote service delivery. We want to do everything we can to enhance your student experience and set you up for the most success possible… and do so in a safe and healthy way.

Read the CCA TO OFFER IN-PERSON SERVICES STARTING MARCH 1 blog for more info on what services are available in person on both the CentreTech and Lowry campus

If you have questions about anything not addressed below, CCA is hosting informational Zoom sessions every week. You can sign up for one—or more—of those Zoom sessions here. CCA's Academic Affairs team also held a Q&A Zoom session on November 2 to address some frequently asked questions about the spring semester. You can watch a recording of that Zoom session here.

Safety and COVID-19 Response

To see a complete list of testing free COVID-19 testing sites in the Tri-County area, visit the Tri-County Health Department website.

If you’re a CCA student or employee and displaying a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease symptoms, being tested for a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease or self-quarantining at the direction of a medical professional, or have been knowingly exposed to someone with a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease symptoms, please fill out CCA’s “COVID-19 Report” form.

CO Exposure Notifications is a free and voluntary service developed in partnership with Google and Apple that can notify users of possible exposure to COVID-19. By opting in, your Android or iPhone device will share anonymous tokens with other CO Exposure Notifications users using your phone’s Bluetooth. If another user you’ve been near tests positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period, the service will notify you. If you test positive, you can easily and anonymously notify others to stop the spread of COVID-19. Visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website to learn more about the app.

If and when you’re on campus in the spring, please be sure to follow the health and safety protocols outlined below. These requirements are based on guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the Colorado Department of Higher Education, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Tri-County Health Department.

Before coming to campus, do a thorough personal assessment and ask yourself these three questions...

  • “Am I displaying any COVID-19 symptoms?”
    • Symptoms include fever above 100.4, tiredness or fatigue, chills, muscle pain, cough, loss of taste or smell, difficulty breathing, headache, and sore throat. If you’re displaying any of these symptoms, please don’t come to campus and instead contact a healthcare provider or the Tri-County Health Department (303-220-9200) for further information and to inquire about COVID-19 testing. You may return to campus only after you are symptom-free and have had a temperature below 100.4 for at least three consecutive days.
  • “Do I have a family member or household member who is displaying COVID-19 symptoms?”
    • If yes, don’t come to campus and instead contact a healthcare provider or the Tri-County Health Department (303-220-9200). Also, be sure to contact the Dean of Students office (303-360-4771) for information and instructions regarding course options.
  • “Have I been knowingly exposed to anyone with COVID-19?”
    • If yes, don’t come to campus for 14 days after exposure. If you develop symptoms, contact a healthcare provider or the Tri-County Health Department (303-290-9200).

While on campus, you must...  

  • Wear a face covering that covers both your nose and mouth when inside any campus building or when interacting within six feet of another person outside of buildings. If you’re not wearing a face covering, you must have an approved accommodation (see below). Face coverings may include a purchased or homemade mask, scarf, bandana, gaiter, or handkerchief. If you don’t have a face covering, you can get one at either of the Welcome Centers on the CentreTech (Administration Building, main entrance) or Lowry (West Quad, south entrance) campuses.  
  • Practice appropriate social distancing of at least six feet between yourself and others.  
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water and/or use the hand sanitizer available throughout both campuses. 
  • Cover coughs or sneezes using a disposable tissue or your sleeve or elbow.  
  • If you demonstrate COVID-19 symptoms, you must report this to your course instructor, return home, and contact a healthcare provider.  

Taking a break...  

Wearing a face covering for an extended period can be taxing, and you may need to take an occasional break. Before removing your face covering, you must go outside and away from building entrances. Once you’ve removed your face covering, you must continue to practice appropriate social distancing.  

When interacting with others...  

  • If a person isn’t wearing a face covering while on campus, kindly remind them of the requirement to wear one. Students and potential students who can’t wear a face covering due to a disability or health reasons should seek an exemption or accommodation by contacting the Office of Disability and Equity (303-340-7548) while visitors should contact Human Resources (303-360-4934).  
  • Individuals who have received an approved accommodation or exemption from wearing a face covering can refer any questions they receive from others on campus to Human Resources (303-360-4934) or the Dean of Students’ office (303-360-4771).  
  • If someone is refusing to wear a face covering absent a medical reason, please notify the Dean of Students’ office (303-360-4771) if the person is a student or Campus Security (CentreTech 303-360-4727, Lowry 303-419-5557) if the person is a visitor.  
  • A person who is uncomfortable with others’ lack of facial covering or social distancing may excuse themselves from participating in class or another activity.  

Please refer to the Tri-County Health Department website to stay up to date on travel advisories.
