Facial Coverings | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

Although TTUHSC is not currently mandating facial coverings, we highly recommend you wear a facial covering when you are indoors among groups of people. Facial coverings have been an effective part of the COVID-19 management strategy. This safety precaution supports our efforts to continue operations without disruptions and provide as traditional of an educational experience as possible.

Additionally, in line with TTUHSC’s standard practices to keep patients safe in all circumstances, we will continue to ask patients who may risk spreading infection to wear a mask within our clinics. Patients may be asked to wear a mask if they have a known or suspected risk for transmission of infectious agents. 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.
