The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a rapidly evolving and emerging situation. UTA will provide updated guidance and information, including the actions the University is taking and the latest health, safety and travel recommendations based on information from UT System, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Department of State.

Updated information is available on UTA's official coronavirus information page: www.uta.edu/coronavirus.

Prevention

We always recommend our community members follow CDC and public health guidelines, which include:

  • Stay home if you are sick and seek medical attention.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid contact with others who are sick.
  • Put distance (6 feet) between yourself and other people.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when around others. Face coverings are required when in campus buildings. Please review UTA's face covering protocol for more information.
  • When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands afterwards.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

What to do if experiencing symptoms

If you are experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with a COVID-19 patient, the CDC and local health authorities have advised to call your health care provider to discuss symptoms or contact history. Do not go to a clinic, UTA Health Services or other, if experiencing symptoms without first calling.

In the event of an emergency, call 911 and inform the dispatcher of COVID-19 concerns.

UTA students can contact UTA Health Services with concerns during office hours at 817-272-2771. Outside of normal business hours, students can call the Tarrant County Public Health Hotline at 817-321-5939. Students not residing within Tarrant County can call 211 for resources in their area.

Reporting Close Contact with COVID-19 Patient(s)

If a student, faculty, or staff member comes into close contact (within six feet) with an individual who has been tested and diagnosed with COVID-19, you are required to complete the Close Contact Form.

Individuals who have been in contact with anyone who has been confirmed positive for COVID-19 will be expected to self-isolate at an off-campus location for 14 days and receive clearance by a medical professional before returning to campus for any reason. UTA Health Services will be in contact with further directions related to daily quarantine check-ins and release to return to campus.

Student emergency assistance fund

UTA students with a temporary hardship as a result of the impact and disruption caused by the coronavirus may apply for financial help from the UTA Emergency Assistance Fund.

The Emergency Assistance Fund is possible through the generous contributions of supporters. If you are interested in supporting our students in need, please consider giving to the Emergency Assistance Fund.

Updates

Updated information is available on UTA's official coronavirus information page, www.uta.edu/coronavirus, including information on international and domestric travel for personal and University-sponsored business.
