Updated March 4, 2022
Texas Wesleyan University is dedicated to supporting the health and safety of our RAMily. Throughout the pandemic, TXWES has continued to follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Based on the CDC's recent updates to their guidelines, Texas Wesleyan will update its mask policy beginning March 7, 2022:
- Indoor and outdoor mask wearing will no longer be required, but employees and students are welcome to wear a mask if they choose to do so.
- People with symptoms or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
- If you are at high risk for severe illness or immunocompromised, you are encouraged to talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask.
Texas Wesleyan will provide additional information as necessary and will begin updating its COVID-19 guidebooks and signage around campus to reflect the new mask policy.
Other important prevention tools include getting tested if you have symptoms, following university COVID-19 protocols and staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.
Star Wellness will be onsite providing COVID-19 vaccinations on Tuesday, March 8 from noon-1 p.m. in the Martin Center, Andrews Hall, Section A. Registration is required.
The new guidelines center on an updated measure of COVID-19 community levels and a new tool, the COVID-19 County Check. Based on these updated measures, Tarrant County currently has transmission levels of "medium."
Any changes in the current mask policy will be evaluated and communicated if the county changes to "high" community spread. Everyone is encouraged to monitor the COVID-19 County Check and wear a mask should the level change to "high."
Working together as a RAMily
Our close-knit community and respect for each other are an integral part of what it means to be Smaller. Smarter. Thank you for continuing to be respectful and courteous when interacting with each other, scheduling meetings and sharing working spaces.
We appreciate your flexibility and support as Texas Wesleyan continues to navigate the changes and challenges caused by the pandemic.
