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.
