Face Coverings Required on Campus

June 25, 2020

Dear Warriors,

Texas A&M University-Central Texas will comply with Bell County Directive #7 issued June 24, 2020. Face coverings must be worn by all individuals in A&M-Central Texas facilities and within 50 feet of building entrances effective June 29, 2020. This includes lobbies, restrooms, hallways, elevators, classrooms, laboratories, conference rooms, break rooms, non-private office spaces and other common spaces. Face coverings are also to be worn while outdoors on campus when social distancing of six (6) feet or more cannot be maintained. Face coverings are not required when alone in a private office. Employees or visitors may request an exception to the policy which will be considered on a case-by-case basis by Human Resources. Students may request an exception through Access and Inclusion.

As stated in the directive and best practices published by the Centers for Disease Control, "face coverings are not a replacement for social distancing, frequent hand washing, and self-isolation when sick." By practicing healthy habits, we can continue our progress toward returning to campus and providing high quality educational experiences in a safe learning environment. Please monitor your email, the university website, and the university’s official social media channels for additional updates. Stay healthy Warriors!
