Current Situation

  • Special Covid Edition TOWN HALL HUDDLE  video - July 20, 2021
  • Although FACIAL COVERINGS ARE not mandated FOR TTUHSC TEAM MEMBERS, STUDENTS, PATIENTS AND GUESTS, TTUHSC highly recommends that facial coverings be worn when individuals are indoors among groups of people
  • Effective August 1, 2021, TTUHSC is at 100% capacity and normal operations on our campuses for clinical services, academics, and all other campus-based operations.
  • Please continue to reference TTUHSC SAFE page for current safety protocols, balancing increased campus operations with appropriate safety measures.
  • TTUHSC will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC and local public health experts.  If circumstances change, we will pivot to reduce on-campus operations as appropriate.
