What you do while you are off campus during this pandemic can impact our University community as much as your behavior on campus. You can bring COVID-19 to campus if you do not follow the preventive measures recommended by the CDC and the State of Texas both on and off campus. Social distancing and hand washingneed to be the new normal to keep our campus community safe and healthy. It is the expectation of the University that it is a shared responsibility of each and every student, faculty and staff member to practice COVID-19 preventive measures wherever you are, whether on or off campus. It is each person's responsibility to take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our campus community, including staying away from parties and social gatherings where social distancing practices are not followed. University-affiliated groups, academic units, and business units are required to ensure that COVID-19 prevention srequirements are followed for both on and off campus gatherings.
