Our Mission

Coog Strong, Mask On is the University of Houston’s rallying cry to defeat COVID-19. It is a recognition that our UH Community must unite on a common mission to prevent the pandemic from disrupting our individual goals and our University’s Tier One academic and research pursuits.

To be successful as a University, individually we must commit to protect ourselves, and each other, from contracting and spreading this virus using a strategy that starts with our first line of defense:

Mask On. Together, we are Coog Strong.

  • Avoid touching your face
  • Avoid sharing food, cups and utensils
  • Sneeze/cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow
  • Wipe down and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

Stay Home

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and avoid contact with others.


Report Exposure, Diagnosis or Symptoms

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, display symptoms, or have been potentially exposed to a person with COVID-19, report it through the proper UH channels so that necessary precautions can be taken to protect others and follow outlined protocols to minimize the spread and take care of your health.


Health Assessment

Conduct a health self-assessment each morning.

The University has developed signs to remind you of prevention protocols to follow. The signs are available to download and print in the Download Zone.
