10.7 COVID-19 Student Resources

UTA continues to monitor official sources as we plan course instruction and safe, phased return to campus in preparation for the fall 2020 semester. The UTA Repopulation Executive Planning Task Force, working in close coordination with the Fall Academic & Course Planning Task Force, has been developing a phased approach to safely resume increased activity on campus.


Face covering protocol

The University implemented a face-covering protocol, effective June 10, 2020. Everyone on campus is required to follow this protocol.

Committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all members of the University Community can persevere academically, personally, and professionally in an equitable and safe manner, devoid of sexual and relationship violence.


Daily health screenings

To keep one another safe, Mavericks must self-monitor daily for COVID-19 symptoms

Mavericks who plan to come to campus to work or learn in the fall semester must follow a simple rule first.

Before reporting to campus each day, all faculty, staff and students must perform a daily health screening, which includes a daily temperature check and self-monitoring for the following COVID-19 symptoms:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills or repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Feverishness, or a temperature greater than or equal to 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit


On-campus testing

Under UTA plan, students identified as needing testing will pay no out-of-pocket costs.

In accordance with public health and medical guidance, on-campus testing will be focused on students showing COVID-19 symptoms

UTA students can contact UTA Health Services with concerns during office hours at 817-272-2771
