The health and safety of our campus communities continue to be a top priority here at KCU. The university's Health and Safety Committee leads the efforts in mitigating risks associated with COVID-19, and provides this website as a consolidated resource for information about the university's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Current University Status
- Masks are required in all lab and clinical activities.
- Masks are encouraged in all other settings when distancing is not possible.
- We will continue to monitor COVID-19 Community Impact Levels and cases on our campuses and adjust our protocols accordingly.
We strongly encourage our campus community to also observe these additional precautions:
- Please plan to carry a mask with you when you’re on campus.
- Minimize your time unmasked when around other people.
- Schedule meetings and gatherings in rooms large enough to accommodate social distancing.
- Consider wearing a mask while indoors in off-campus settings.
- Remain up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
- Stay home and avoid contact with others if you are sick.
- Keep a supply of at-home COVID tests on hand in your home. You may order up to eight free tests here.
If you have tested positive for COVD-19 regardless of vaccination status:
- Please complete the KCU COVID Intake Form and follow the latest Quarantine and Isolation guidelinesfrom the CDC;
- Stay home for at least five days and isolate from others in your home;
- Wear a well-fitted mask if you must be around others in your home;
- If you were severely ill with COVD-19 you should isolate for at least 10 days. Consult your doctor before ending isolation.
You can find Community-Based Testing Sites in your area using the link here.
- The libraries at each campus have a limited supply of rapid antigen tests that you can sign out.
- Supplies are limited so we ask that you use this resource only if you have not been successful with any of the above testing options.
