Welcome to the Spring 2021 semester! Mask, social distancing, and remote work requirements continue to be in effect. Now that UTEP is an approved vaccine provider, there will likely come a point during the spring semester when more meaningful campus activities may occur.
In the meantime, faculty and staff are reminded of the safety guidelines and resources available to those who will be working on campus.
It is important for you, as a leader, to gather your team members to talk through how to continue implementing safety rules and guidelines in your workspace. You can do that virtually or socially distanced on campus.
At a minimum, every employee working on campus should receive training on:
- Symptoms of COVID-19
- Required check-in with screening.utep.edu
- How to protect yourself and others
- Cleaning and disinfection
- UTEP’s COVID-19 testing and vaccination programs
A PowerPoint was created for you to use with your team to cover these topics, which can be accessed at this link. Please consider sharing the PowerPoint with your team in advance of doing your own in-person training so that your team can think about their questions in advance.

The campus will continue to be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. Classrooms and common areas remain reconfigured to enable social distance. There will continue to be a significantly reduced number of people on campus at any one time.
The little decisions by thousands of us collectively will really make a difference. As a leader, you set the tone so that we get the basics right – stay home if you are sick, wear a face covering, stay six feet apart, and wash your hands frequently. Please help reinforce these best practices and model them with your team, even as some begin to receive vaccines.
