COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Utilities announced Monday morning that five of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19.

The company said out of 25 who have been tested, five came back positive, 13 came back negative and seven people have their tests pending.

CSU said 54% of their workers are remote and 7% are absent "due to sick, coronavirus, vacation and normal time off." Their employees have a plan to return on May 4 and that they are developing a re-entry plan to "ensure employee safety and business continuity."

Services are continuing and, as previously announced, CSU said it is not disconnecting customers during this time. If you need financial plans with CSU, be sure to give them a call.
