COVID-19 Update

July 6, 2020

In an attempt to comply with Governor Abbott's most recent executive order, I am requiring all students, faculty, staff and visitors to wear face coverings in University buildings, classrooms/labs, meeting spaces, athletic and recreational events and other areas where multiple people are gathered. Face coverings are not required when alone in an office or in assigned residence hall rooms.

Accommodations will be available for individuals with religious, medical or other concerns. These accommodations will be processed through the Office of Human Resources for employees and the Office of Student Accessibility and Resources for students.

Student athletes who are planning to practice for their sport should check with the Athletics Department for specific details on best practices for good hygiene (e.g. frequently washing hands).

UT Tyler-branded cloth face masks can be obtained at the following locations at the specified days and times:

8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
University Police Station Parking Services Desk
Robert R. Muntz Library Help Desk

1 - 4 p.m. Monday and Wednesday
Herrington Patriot Center

1 - 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday
One Stop Service Center: Station 8
