Update on Mask Use
Thursday, May 20, 2021
In accordance with the Executive Order issued by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott this week, face coverings will no longer be required on the UTEP campus. This is effective immediately and applies to indoor and outdoor spaces.
For employees and students who have not been vaccinated, face coverings are highly recommended to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We strongly encourage vaccination for anyone able to be vaccinated. You can find information about where to get a vaccine here: www.epcovidvaccine.com/#locations
UTEP summer classes are set up to allow social distancing. We won’t change summer classroom capacity, though CDC and local health guidance is relaxing the six-foot social distancing requirement.
Campus signs related to face masks and social distancing will be removed soon.
Please continue to wash or sanitize your hands regularly.
Information about UTEP’s guidelines for the summer and fall on our website will be updated soon. Please visit www.utep.edu/resuming-campus-operations/guidance/index.html for more information.
