Protecting Yourself and Others

We’re continuing to put the health and safety of our campus community front and center. Below are some critical Guidelines that - when practiced - will not only protect you but will also ensure our campuses and facilities are habitable for everyone going forward:

  • Self-Screening: Each day, prior to visiting any UTRGV campus/off-campus facilities, university students and employees must review and answer the current version of the UT Health RGV screening questions regarding COVID-19-related symptoms. Do not access the campus/off-campus facilities if:
    • You answered yes to any of the screening questions
    • You have been exposed (within 6 ft. for more than 15 minutes) to someone who tested positive or who is currently being tested for COVID-19 in the prior 14 days.
    • You tested positive for COVID-19 and have not been officially released by a member of the COVID-19 Response Team.
  • Maintain a six feet distance from others
  • Frequently wash your hands and stay home, especially if you are sick or having respiratory symptoms
  • Clean and disinfect your personal space and belongings

The use of cloth face coverings is always recommended and required on campus in all buildings, classrooms, libraries, and laboratories.

Face coverings are also required when you are:

  • In your personal office space with others.
  • Outdoors in a public space near others.
