Latest information on operational modifications for fall 2021 Roadrunner Roadmap

Confirmed Cases Reported to UTSA

The health and safety of our Roadrunners is paramount. UTSA is closely monitoring active cases on campus to determine the impact on our campus community and to minimize the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible. To keep the Roadrunner community informed about the presence of COVID-19 positive cases on campus, UTSA will provide regular updates regarding the number of positive cases with direct campus impact and the number of students quarantined in student housing.

  • Athletic Cohort: Students and staff tested on a regular basis as part of NCAA guidelines and internal protocols.
  • Direct Campus Impact: Individuals who have received a positive COVID-19 test and: (a) live in UTSA-managed student housing, (b) are part of the Athletic cohort, (c) whose work or study modality is "on-campus," or (d) have been on campus and had a close contact* with a student, staff, or faculty member.
  • Faculty/Staff: Individuals employed by the university. Data for students employed in some capacity by UTSA is reflected in the student sections of this dashboard.
  • Isolation: Refers to the separation of sick people with a contagious disease (such as COVID-19) from people who are not sick.
  • Mandatory Testing: Students who participate in the mandatory Welcome Back Testing Program.
  • Positive: Individuals who received a positive COVID-19 test result.
  • Positivity Rate: The number of positive tests divided by the total number of tests (positive and negative).
  • Proactive Testing: Students who participate in the voluntary proactive testing program.
  • Quarantine: Refers to separating and restricting the movement of people who, while not yet ill, may have been or were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
  • Symptomatic Testing: Individuals who are tested because they experience COVID-19 symptoms or because they were exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Students: Students enrolled for the current semester.

*Close contact is defined by the CDC as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.


See UTSA Housing and Residence Life’s protocols for isolation and quarantine guidelines and procedures. 

Individuals who have been in close contact with a positive case on campus will be contacted by a university representative for contact tracing.

UTSA is committed to protecting the personal health information of our community. All information shared adheres to privacy standards. Data for this website is compiled from Student Health Services, Occupational Health, Athletics, Housing and Residence Life and from self-reporting. Positive case data is also shared with the San Antonio Metropolitan Health Department. Since some of the information is self-reported, confirmation of the results of each test cannot be definitively verified.
