  • What if a family member or someone employees have been in close contact with has been diagnosed or is presently quarantined because of COVID-19?

    Employees who have been exposed to a family member or a close contact who is presently quarantined or has been diagnosed with COVID-19 must self-quarantine for 14 days following their last exposure to the ill family member or close contact. 

    They should closely monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms appear two to 14 days after exposure and may include fever, cough and shortness of breath. Of course, staff should contact their health care provider directly, and inform their supervisor immediately. We are asking that employees contact if they have a diagnosis or if a family member has a diagnosis and they need to quarantine. 

  • Should supervisors ask employees about their plans if they request vacation time off?

    No, but refer employees to current University policy on travel.

  • Can we book travel?

    The University of Denver restricts all non-essential domestic and international travel for employees and students through Sept 1, 2020.

    For those who receive approval for essential travel:

    • Employees are required to book travel through Pioneer Travel and Expense (log in through Pioneer Web)
    • Any employees who travel internationally must submit a Request in Pioneer Travel and Expense (log in through Pioneer Web)
    • Students are required to register international travel in DU Passport as an experiential learner

    The University also strongly discourages personal out-of-state travel to designated high and escalating incidences of COVID-19 cases and all international travel.

    All approved travelers and any individuals who travel out-of-state or internationally for business or personal travel are required to self-quarantine for 10-days before returning to campus if they are arriving from any other country or if they are arriving from a state designated as having high and escalating incidences of COVID-19 cases. View our list of restricted travel states here; this list is updated weekly. DU Community members returning from travel from a state that does not have widespread outbreaks of the virus may return to campus after travel while monitoring symptoms.

    The University asks that travelers wait until 21 days prior to the date of their travel to determine what the University’s current guidelines are for essential travel.

    In light of the fast-changing travel environment, the University requires that all future University travel for employees be booked through the online travel booking tool (Pioneer Travel and Expense) or by contacting Christopherson Business Travel directly at (800)-285-3603 or This eliminates the personal financial risk of a trip being canceled. If you have questions regarding travel booking or canceling an existing flight, please contact Shared Services at 303-871-7420 or Shared Services. For personal travel, travelers may want to consider purchasing travel insurance from a reputable vendor.

  • Do DU have an agreement with any local law firms to help create wills and other end-of-life documents?
