  • Effective Monday, January 23, 2023, until further notification, based on the stated COVID-19 infection rate, TTUHSC students and team members in Lubbock will no longer be required to wear face masks in our clinics under the temporary face mask requirement. There continues to be no face mask requirement in TTUHSC's Amarillo, Abilene, Midland, and Odessa clinics.
  • Over the past few weeks, there has been a surge in cases of COVID, the flu, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).  Please consider ways to reduce risk of infection, such as by wearing masks and being vaccinated. 
  • All team members and students who test positive for COVID-19 will need to report such to the Office of Institutional Health through the positive COVID-19 test reporting form. This replaces the previous self-attestation form.
  • Please continue to reference TTUHSC SAFE page for current safety protocols, balancing increased campus operations with appropriate safety measures.

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.
