University Response

UTA is committed to protecting our University community. The University works closely with the cognizant public health officials and agencies in identifying individuals who may have come in contact with the virus, and has conducted precautionary additional cleaning of University buildings that were frequented by diagnosed individuals. 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 (Student) 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. 

UTA Health Services information is available at uta.edu/healthservices.

Student and Employee testing

On-campus testing will be focused on students showing COVID-19 symptoms and will be based on testing strategies implemented in accordance with public health and medical guidance.

Student Health Services and many clinics have very specific protocols when treating possible COVID-19 patients. Students experiencing symptoms should call before going to a clinic or UTA Health Services to receive directions regarding specific protocols. UTA students can contact UTA Health Services with concerns during office hours at 817-272-2771. Students who are identified by Health Services as being in need of testing will not pay out-of-pocket costs, regardless of whether they have insurance.

Employees seeking testing should contact their health care provider or local health department.
