Please consider that we are all at risk for getting COVID-19 if exposed to the virus, with some more likely than others to become severely ill. But, we are not defenseless. Facial coverings can help slow the spread of respiratory viruses, including COVID-19, by minimizing the airborne droplets via sneezes, coughs, or even talking. Since people can carry and spread the virus without showing any symptoms - or with very mild symptoms - wearing a facial covering can help protect those around you and the community at large.

Facial Coverings 

TTUHSC team members and students are highly recommended to wear facial coverings on campus and are required to wear them in patient care areas, regardless of vaccination status. For those who are not able to wear a mask, we will work to make arrangements to provide care in a way that also keeps others safe.
