The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been spreading undetected for at a minimum of six (6) weeks in the United States [1]. The number of total cases quadrupled in one day, a majority of which are in the Denver area. With results of CU Boulder members pending and students returning from study abroad programs located in outbreak hotspots the University of Colorado Boulder should close until enough testing is done in the Boulder area to determine whether the CU Boulder student body and faculty are at risk. 

Colorado testing states that tests are not being conducted on those whom are not showing symptoms [2], even if he/she has had contact with a known positive.
