The following reminders are offered as an uptick of COVID-19 cases are being reported in South Texas and throughout the country.
In the interest of keeping our community safe, students, faculty and staff should not attend in-person classes or events or come to work on campus if ill or have tested positive for COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive should follow the guidelines provided by the CDC and use the isolation and exposure calculator.
The following protocols must be followed by students, faculty and staff who receive a positive result for COVID-19:
• Students Living in the Residence Halls: Must submit a Self-Report Form when diagnosed as COVID positive. They also must notify their professors of their isolation dates calculated with the use of the CDC calculator.
• Athletes: No longer have to submit a Self-Report form when diagnosed with COVID-19 (unless they live in a residence hall); however, they must notify their professors and coaches of their isolation dates calculated with the use of the CDC calculator.
• Commuter Students: Are not required to submit a Self-Report form but must notify their professors of their isolation dates calculated with the use of the CDC calculator.
• Employees: Are not required to submit a Self-Report form but must notify their supervisors of their isolation dates calculated with the use of the CDC calculator.
Student Affairs No Longer Providing Letters
Please Note: The Division of Student Affairs no longer provides letters to faculty when a student tests positive for COVID-19. Students have been directed to communicate directly with their faculty members about absences.
Students who will be absent due to COVID or other illnesses are encouraged to contact the Accessibility Services Office as soon as possible for support and accommodations.
Testing services are no longer available on campus. At-home tests are available at local retailers and pharmacies. Some free services are available to individuals without health insurance. Information is available online at https://www.covid.gov/tests. A community-based testing site locator is available online.
