UNT Dallas is happy to welcome Trailblazers back to campus. The health and safety of our university community is a top priority. Please help keep yourself and those around you safe by doing your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 on campus.
COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to keep you, your family, and your community safe. Medical experts tell us that vaccination is essential to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
There are multiple locations throughout the metroplex to obtain a vaccine. Please refer to your county’s website for details on where vaccines are available in your area.
Wear a mask, even if you’re vaccinated.
The CDC announced on May 13 that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not have to wear masks in most public spaces anymore. On May 18, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order prohibiting government entities from mandating masks -- effective immediately. While UNT Dallas does not require masks on campus, the university strongly encourages all students, employees, and campus visitors to wear masks while on campus. Here are the top 5 reasons you should keep wearing a mask – weather your vaccinated or not. (Source: Cleveland Clinic)
Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. To practice social or physical distancing, try to stay at least 3 feet from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Putting some space between you and others will help prevent droplets from coughing/sneezing or simply speaking from landing on you (or those around you).
Practice hand hygiene.
Keeping hands clean with soap and water is one of the most important things everyone can do to stay healthy. Studies have shown that handwashing can prevent 1 in 5 respiratory infections, such as a cold or the flu, and helps stop the spread of COVID-19.
