We are happy you are studying with us for the Spring 2022 session. The university has continued to update their COVID-19 safety protocols; please read on for details:
Masks strongly recommended: Masks are strongly recommended in all buildings, regardless of your vaccination status. See this chart for additional mask guidance. To protect yourself and others from COVID-19, CDC continues to recommend that you wear the most protective mask you can that fits well and that you will wear consistently
COVID testing: The university offers free COVID testing, and we encourage all students to get tested regularly. Visit this website to see testing options and schedule an appointment. Learn more about Proactive Community Testing: Proactive Community Testing (PCT) provides a quick and painless saliva or painless nasal-swab COVID-19 test for asymptomatic UT Austin students and employees. Testing helps the campus community monitor and respond to COVID-19 cases, contributes significantly to slowing the spread of the virus and is provided at no cost by the university.
Protect Texas Together app: Please download this smartphone app to complete daily symptom checks before reporting to campus. This app also provides contract tracing and helpful links to testing locations on campus.
Vaccinations: If you have not yet been fully vaccinated, free COVID vaccines are available on the UT campus. Visit this website to request a vaccination appointment at UT Health Austin. The vaccine is also offered free of charge at multiple clinics and pharmacies in the Austin area. Additionally, a booster dose of an mRNA vaccine is recommended for individuals who completed their primary series of the Pfizer vaccine 5 or more months ago, the Moderna vaccine 5 or more months ago, or the initial dose of Johnson & Johnson 2 or more months ago.
- In order to make vaccination as accessible as possible for the university community, COVID-19 vaccine distribution will take place at different sites across campus.

Authorized COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe illness and death. As a way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19, we encourage all UT community members to get vaccinated.
The university continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and may change operations with the health and safety of the community in mind. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
