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
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.
If Exposed, Diagnosed or Symptomatic
In the event of COVID-19 exposure, diagnosis or symptoms, please follow the masking guidance, as well as all other guidance, outlined on the Exposed or Diagnosed page.
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, stay home from school or work and get tested right away. Submit a COVID Case Report and follow the guidance you receive from the COVID Response Team.
