CSU cancels in-person, remote classes Monday for 'extreme cold weather'

The university’s heating systems will likely not be able to keep building temperatures above suitable levels for operations because of the extreme temps, CSU said.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State University (CSU) has canceled all in-person, hybrid and remote classes for Monday, a university spokesperson said Sunday, citing extreme cold weather.

All operations, including meetings and work functions, are canceled and facilities management is asking that individuals avoid coming onto campus and entering buildings, CSU said. 

It will be a frigid start to the day Monday, according to 9NEWS Meteorologist Danielle Grant, after a weekend of record-low temperatures across the Front Range. 

Fort Collins saw a wind chill of -19 degrees Sunday evening and is expecting a low of -15 degrees overnight into Monday.

"COVID-19 public health standards require that increased outdoor air be circulated through buildings," the university said on its Facebook page. "Unfortunately, the university’s heating systems will likely not be able to keep building temperatures above suitable levels for operations because of the extremely cold weather."

CSU on its Facebook page said even though some employees working remotely could work even while in-person operations are closed, the public safety team is formally canceling all operations in the interest of equity.
