From Pandemic to Endemic
With COVID-19 shifting into a more controlled phase, UNT Dallas is shifting gears from pandemic to endemic in relations to COVID-19 contact tracing. The University will continue to monitor community spread of the virus and may shift back to contact tracing protocols for the entire university community if a need arises. However, effective immediately, the following changes will take place:
- UNT Dallas will no longer offer contact tracing for positive test cases or for exposure cases. Individuals who test positive for the virus should follow current CDC guidelines for quarantine/isolation and follow the treatment advice of their primary care physician. Individuals who are exposed should also follow CDC guidelines and consult with their primary care physician to discuss their best course of action. CDC Guidelines
- Students, faculty and staff should handle COVID-19-related absences the same way they handle any other health-related absence.
- The Student Health Clinic will continue to provide COVID-19 tests, vaccinations and booster shots. Please follow the guidelines posted on the Student Health Clinic website for further instructions.
