According to CDC, the COVID-19 transmission level in El Paso County 

The CDC and the El Paso County Department of Public Health recommend indoor masking, regardless of vaccination status, when transmission levels are substantial or high. Additional metrics on county COVID-19 levels are available here.  
The vast majority of exposures of CC community members appear to occur when members of our campus community interact with others outside of the CC community. Common exposure activities include indoor activities such as visiting friends and family, parties and other gatherings, eating in restaurants, and traveling. 
As we prepare to welcome visitors to campus for events this coming weekend, remember to take steps to protect yourself and others:  
  • Wear a mask indoors when off campus; masks are required indoors on campus (unless you are in your personal residence or office) 
  • We recommend KN95 masks or similar (e.g., KF94, N95), surgical, or cloth masks with at least three layers.
  • Make sure your mask fits snugly against your face on all sides and does not leave gaps. A well-fitting mask acts as a filter and catches viral particles that otherwise you would inhale. 
We strongly encourage all members of the CC community to get a flu shot. Attend the on-campus flu shot clinic on Saturday, Oct. 16, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the main space of Cornerstone Arts Center. No appointment necessary. 
Did you know you can view college COVID-19 vaccination rates, testing, and exposure data on the CC COVID-19 dashboard? These data are now being updated weekly.
