COVID-19 Response


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



  • We are seeing moderate increases in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in our surrounding communities presenting an increasing risk to all faculty, staff and students as we begin the semester.
  • Due to the increased infectiousness of the most recent variants, it is critically important that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID that you get tested using any of the resources listed below.
  • Your willingness to continue to play your part in protecting our community is allowing us to continue to stay operational with as little disruption as possible.


Mask Guidance:

  • Masks are only required during Score 1/clinical events and during mock clinical events that include simulated patients.
  • Anyone who wants to wear a mask in addition to the events listed above should feel encouraged to do so.
  • We will continue to track the number of positive cases on campus and impact in our surrounding communities and use that information to adjust policies as necessary.
  • Please be mindful that individuals will be at varying degrees of comfort.

    Vaccinations and Boosters

    • Now is the time to get your COVID booster if you are eligible to do so.
    • If it has been more than 5 months since you completed your two-dose primary series of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, please consider getting a booster.
    • COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. Get answers to frequently asked questions and bust myths about vaccines.
    • The best way of preventing disruptions to your academic journey due to complications of a COVID-19 infection is to get and remain up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters.
