Latest information on vaccines and campus operations 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.

In an effort 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.

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.
