Campus Operations

UTSA is committed to fostering a safe learning, working and living environment for our Roadrunner community. As part of our shared responsibility to do our part, the university developed a robust pandemic management plan designed to limit the spread of COVID-19 and maintain the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. This includes resources and tools for:

  •   A portal for COVID-19 Case Reporting of positive cases and potential exposures
  •   Availability of testing for students, faculty and staff
  •   Contact tracing resources
  •   On-campus vaccine clinics held each month
  •   Dashboard and risk level monitoring
  •   Guidance and case management

Current Campus Operational Status

At this time, UTSA is under standard campus operating procedures, with classes, meetings and events held in-person. In the event local pandemic conditions necessitate changes to campus operations, UTSA Recovery Operations will notify Roadrunner community and this page will be updated.

As always, we strongly encourage all ‘Runners to take the actions below to ensure the health and safety of our campus community.

Mask Up

Face coverings are encouraged on campus. Regardless of your vaccination status, masking up on campus is strongly encouraged, but not required. Recommended face coverings can be medical or non-medical grade and should fully cover both the nose and the mouth.

Indoors, face coverings are encouraged while in all campus buildings, especially in high-traffic areas. If you are working alone and isolated in an enclosed workspace, e.g., laboratory, studio, office, practice room and another person enters the workspace, we encourage you to re-apply your face covering.

Outdoors, face coverings are encouraged when social distancing is not possible. We encourage you to always wear your mask when not able to distance from others. If you are outdoors without your mask, remember to reapply it immediately when you meet with other people.

Get Tested When Needed

If you experience COVID-19 symptoms or have a close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive individual, get tested. Testing is available on campus, at a variety of local testing sites and through at-home testing options.

After you are tested, be sure to submit a COVID Case Report, especially if you test positive.

 

Get Vaxxed and Boosted

Getting fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 is the best way to ensure campus infections remain low and prevent the reinstatement of limitations on in-person classes, campus events, activities, services and housing. If you haven’t done so yet, we strongly urge you to get vaxxed and stay up to date on your boosters so we can all enjoy campus life to its fullest.

A variety of COVID-19 vaccine opportunities are available to the Roadrunner community, including monthly Main Campus vaccine clinics as well as state and local vaccine providers. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and side effects are generally mild and only last a few days.

 

Stay Home When You Are Sick

Always be sure to regularly monitor your health and watch for COVID-19 symptoms. If you experience symptoms, be sure to get tested and stay home from school or work. If you have close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive individual, be sure to follow quarantine protocols as they pertain to you.
