Face-Covering Protocol

To create the safest possible environment on campus, UTA implemented a face-covering protocol, effective June 10, 2020, and in effect until further notice.

Face-Covering Protocol Details

This protocol will apply to everyone on campus—all students, staff, faculty, contractors, vendors, suppliers, and visitors—and is critical in minimizing risks to others near you.

They must be worn
  • while in campus buildings (except private offices, alone in labs, in residence hall rooms or apartments, or when eating); and
  • elsewhere on campus where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., student shuttle buses, well-attended outdoor events, etc.).
Where to Obtain a Mask

Reusable, washable fabric face masks for individuals are available at Central Library and the information desk at the University Center.

Through UTA’s Environmental Health and Safety Department, reusable, washable fabric face masks are available for UTA departments and disposable, three-ply, pleated, ear-loop face masks are available for research groups.

Protecting our Community

As we continue to learn from and adapt to the pandemic, we will remain nimble and adjust as necessary, while following the recommendations of experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Texas, and The University of Texas System.

We will all do our part to keep our community safe by continuing to practice safe social distancing, follow proper hygiene and sanitation procedures, and wear masks on campus and in public—especially when social distancing cannot be achieved. We are in this together.

Future Communications

As additional details are finalized, more information will be announced and provided at the Coronavirus and Fall 2020 Semester Information page as well through MavWire and Trailblazer.
