The protocols below are in line with University of Houston COVID-19 Guidelines and are mandatory for all on-campus residents. Additional information can be found at https://uh.edu/covid-19/.
Note: As with all the guidance and protocols related to COVID-19, the University will adjust its guidance as necessary to reflect new information and findings.
Limiting face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19:
- Put distance between yourself and other people. Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
- Avoid gathering in groups. However, if a group is meeting, meet in a public place where 6 feet of social distancing can be maintained. Wearing masks is mandatory unless a resident has accommodation on file.
- Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.
- Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
