CA+P COVID-19 Resources
Dear CA+P Family,
On June 1, 2020 the University of Utah formally announced that it intends to return to campus this fall, with the first day of classes set for August 24. We cannot wait to welcome you back!
To keep the information consistent, our College encourages you to check the University’s website “Return to Campus” frequently as it will get updated as decisions are made. The University is following stage guidelines that state face coverings (e.g. mask, scarf, gaiter, bandana) should be worn in public settings when physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Face coverings must cover both the nose and the mouth. Please note that these steps are being taken as an act of health justice in regard to this pandemic, knowing that our healthcare system has a given capacity and we want to do our part to insure that those at greatest risk receive those services.
We cannot wait to welcome you back and know that we will continue to provide you the best learning experience and workplace environment that we are able.
The following are resources from the University for our entire community:
University of Utah COVID-19 response information – General Information with Updates
Up-to-date COVID – Info from UHealth on the virus itself and how to prepare and respond. Important here is call FIRST before going to a medical provider with suspected symptoms.

Original March 2020 Dean’s Letter:
As you heard on March 12th, the University of Utah is responding as a community leader to the public health threat presented by the Coronavirus in taking the following actions:
- CLASSES ARE CANCELLED on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th
- ALL CLASSES WILL GO ONLINE AS OF WEDNESDAY, March 18th (delayed due to 5.7 earthquake and after shocks)
- STUDENTS WHO ARE CURRENTLY OFF-CAMPUS ARE ASKED TO REMAIN OFF CAMPUS for the remainder of the semester (e.g. STAY AT HOME and do not travel back if you are out of state)
- RESTRICT ALL INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC TRAVEL
- UNIVERSITY COMMENCEMENT AND COLLEGE CONVOCATION ARE POSTPONED
Please note that these steps are being taken as an act of health justice in regard to this pandemic, knowing that our healthcare system has a given capacity and we want to do our part to insure that those at greatest risk receive those services. Hopefully, we can societally change the arc from a tsunami of infection to a subtle wave.
