Colorado Mountain College (CMC) has announced the emergency closure of all CMC campuses, and offices effective Monday, March 16. The announcement follows the most recent alert from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), which states that individuals who live in or have visited Pitkin, Summit, Eagle, or Gunnison counties should minimize any social contact.
Based upon that, all Colorado Mountain College campuses and Central Services will be closed to students and staff until 6:00 p.m., Monday, March 16.
The college decided on this one-day closure in order to give leadership time to assess the college’s responses to the CDPHE alert, which was released late in the day on Sunday. The closure is precautionary only and not in response to known COVID-19 exposure on any CMC campus.
This applies to all Colorado Mountain College campuses and central administrative offices.
Essential campus staff working in residential halls and dining halls should report to work on Monday. Residence halls reopened on Sunday; those students who choose to return to the halls may do so.
