Health & Shared Responsibility
The wellbeing of our community is vitally important, and our intent is to provide a learning, living and working environment that provides heightened protection of all Roadrunners. The public health safety measures described below are based on direction from UTSA’s Public Health Task Force, along with guidance from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, UT System, and aligned with city, state & federal health directives.
Measures may be adjusted as new information becomes available.
Birds Up, Sleeves Up: Get Vaccinated
Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your friends from COVID-19 and its variants. Vaccines are safe, effective, and available to all Roadrunners.
Face coverings at UTSA
Face coverings/masks are recommended in indoor public and common spaces, especially for those individuals who are high risk and/or not vaccinated. More information about campus face coverings>>
Testing available on campus
UTSA partners with Livingston Med Lab to offer testing to all students, faculty and staff, regardless of whether they are symptomatic. Results are typically received within 24 hours. Learn about testing on campus>>
Contact tracing in place
Those who have symptoms of COVID-19 or who have encountered someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 are being identified and tracked. UTSA is also tracking confirmed cases to help minimize the spread of the disease as much as possible.
Self-monitor your health
UTSA offers a health daily self-assessment tool, accessible from both the UTSA and LiveSafe mobile apps. Everyone is highly encouraged to conduct daily health assessments, wash hands frequently and practice good personal hygiene.
