- On May 11, 2023, the COVID-19 public health emergency expired. Accordingly, there are no further COVID-19 face mask or vaccination requirements for TTUHSC’s facilities. However, non-TTUHSC clinical facilities may still have related protocols in place. Please work with your program director and/or supervisor in the event you work or learn at a non-TTUHSC facility that may implement COVID-19 vaccination or related mitigation requirements to understand processes you may need to follow at those sites.
- Please continue to reference TTUHSC SAFE page for current safety protocols, balancing increased campus operations with appropriate safety measures.
- As a scientific community, we respect the data supporting that being fully vaccinated is the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We highly encourage everyone eligible to stay up to date on vaccinations. To find COVID-19 vaccine locations search vaccines.gov, text your zip code to 438829, or call 800-232-0233.
The priority of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is to provide and maintain a welcoming and safe environment for all official university operations, clinical settings, academic instruction and managed care units.
