COVID-19 Update: Campus Operations

Monday, May 4, 2020 :: University Marketing and Communication

Dear Campus Community:

Based on the latest national, state and local guidelines, UTRGV would like to announce safety and health protocol updates for those students and employees who currently access campus or off-campus facilities.

While on campus/off-campus facilities or utilizing university vehicles, it is expected that all students and employees wear some form of covering over their mouth and nose, such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief, when social distancing of six feet is not possible.

The purpose of the facial covering is to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. For this reason, facial coverings remain a wise public health method to prevent transmission.

As always, thank you for your patience during this extremely fluid situation. Our primary concern continues to be the health, safety, and security of our UTRGV community.

If you have questions, please reach out to your supervisor for guidance or email
