COVID-19 Update

Western Colorado University is closely monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. University leaders are working closely with government and public health agencies and continue to follow guidelines from Gunnison County Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

The health and safety of your participants and staff continue to be our top priority along with the greater University community. With this, things are rapidly evolving, and while our intention is to operate this summer without change, the University may alter or suspend programs at any point in the future and restrict participants who have traveled to or from affected areas. At this time, the University has not yet determined plans for Conference and Camp events taking place after May 8. If the situation changes and your program is impacted, we will work with you to reschedule your program if possible. Any such decision will be communicated directly to you via email. We encourage you to continue to monitor Gunnison County Public Health Orders for accurate and up-to-date information as the global health situation evolves.

If you decide to suspend or cancel your program, please contact us directly so that we can discuss specifics on the cancellation policy described in our agreement if your group arrangements are at that point in the reservation process.

We ask and encourage you to share this message with your organization. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
