If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please get tested, self-isolate, or self-quarantine as appropriate. See guidelines in this exposure action chart.

- UHS Appointment Line – (512) 471-4955

Proactive Community Testing
Getting tested, even when you feel healthy, helps UT monitor and respond to COVID-19 and contributes significantly to slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We encourage faculty and students, particularly those that are on campus, to participate in proactive community testing on campus. To qualify for this test, you must not have any symptoms of COVID-19. CLICK HERE to learn more and to schedule an appointment.
Reporting a Positive Test Result
If you test positive for COVID-19, please contact UT Austin’s Behavior Concerns Advice Line by calling 512-232-5050 to report your test result. Students will not get in trouble for testing positive.
If you are in F-1 status and will miss classes, please send a copy of your test results to us at email@example.com. We will keep your diagnosis private, but will keep this documentation on file to help ensure that you maintain your immigration status.
According to the CDC, if you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic. Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required.
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. It is recommended that you continue taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.
Masks are optional inside university buildings and outdoors. For individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have weakened immune systems, masking and social distancing are optional but recommended.
