UT Tyler Health and Safety Guidance

 

The University of Texas at Tyler strongly encourages our campus community to take the necessary preventative measures to ensure health and safety. In addition to wearing a mask when appropriate, social distancing when possible, covering coughs and sneezes, and practicing good hand hygiene, the COVID-19 vaccine is a protective measure to prevent severe illness due to COVID-19. You can contact your health care provider or local pharmacy to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine.

Stay home and contact your professors or supervisors if you do not feel well or have symptoms so that you do not risk exposing others.
