- Out of respect for the patient's health privacy rights, we are not sharing any identifying information, except with the appropriate health authorities. The University coordinated with the Tarrant County Health Department on the campus notification.
UTA is committed to protecting our community and the community beyond our campus. The University works closely with the cognizant health officials and agencies in identifying individuals who may have come in contact with the virus. If you were identified as someone who has been in contact with, or in close proximity to, any individual who has tested positive for the virus, you will be notified.
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.
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, call the Tarrant County Public Health hotline at 817-321-5939.
