UT Continuing to Monitor Coronavirus Situation

Although UT has received no reports of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, staff from UT Emergency Management, the Student Health Center, Student Life, the Center for Global Engagement, and other campus offices are closely monitoring the outbreak and working with partners at the local, state, and federal levels.

As the outbreak continues, we will monitor developments and adjust our procedures to ensure the safety and well-being of our campus community.

To date, we have taken the following measures:

How you can help

Even though we have not had a COVID-19 case, we want faculty and staff to understand what to do if for any reason they are asked to isolate themselves by their health care provider or health officials. If you are under self-isolation with no symptoms per CDC recommendations, contact your supervisor. If you are under self-isolation with symptoms, contact both your supervisor and your health care provider. Supervisors in either case are asked to contact Director of Emergency Management Brian Gard at 865-974-3061. Faculty and staff may return to their normal activities on campus after completing the CDC’s self-isolation protocol.

Students who might be affected will work with the Student Health Center and follow the Office of the Dean of Students’ absence notification process.

Many members of the Volunteer community have family and friends who may be affected by the outbreak. Please encourage them to access support by calling 865-974-HELP (students) or 865-946-CARE (faculty and staff).
