Coronavirus Updates and Important Information

Fort Lewis College is actively monitoring the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Colorado and taking proactive measures to ensure the health and well-being of each member of our community in accordance with the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

  • Masks are required while on the Fort Lewis College campus. This policy applies to all visitors, employees, and students in all indoor spaces, and while traveling through centralized outdoor areas of campus. Face shields may be worn as an additional layer of protection but are not a replacement for masks. Buffs, neck gaiters, and bandanas are not permitted as masks. 

Required COVID-19 testing

All Students need to test between Jan. 16-27 to join in-person engagement on Feb. 1. Whether you are testing at FLC or at a different location, please schedule your COVID-19 test during this time.

A negative test result is required for in-person engagement; students who are symptom-free and have tested negative for COVID-19 will receive a Green Health Pass on the FLC App; this green health pass must be shown when arriving at classes or when using other campus services.

Free testing is available to FLC students at other COVIDCheck Colorado sites. Search for a site option near you.

If you get tested at a site outside of Fort Lewis College—out-of-state sites or other COVIDCheck Colorado sites—you will need to upload your results here.

Take care of yourself and your fellow Skyhawks

In order to stop the spread of COVID-19 on campus and in surrounding communities, we each need to adhere to our pillars of virus mitigation while we are both on and off campus. 

  • Practice physical distancing: Maintain at least six feet distance between yourself and others.
  • Safely cover your face with a mask when in public.
  • Do not gather in groups of more than 10 people.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water. In the absence of soap and water, use hand-sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or bent elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

COVID-19 symptoms may be flu-like, ranging from mild to serious, and include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Individuals with these symptoms and potential exposure to coronavirus are advised to stay home except to get medical care. Call the campus Health Center at 970-247-7355 for guidance.
