From The University of Texas at Arlington: 

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

We care deeply about the health and well-being of our Maverick family, especially as we address the emerging challenges posed by the spread of the coronavirus. I am writing to inform the UTA campus that we have learned that a UTA student has been confirmed to have COVID-19 infection.

The University is working closely with Tarrant County health officials and assisting in identifying individuals who may have had contact with the individual.

As a reminder, if you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a COVID-19 patient, the CDC and local health authorities have advised to call your health care provider before visiting a clinic. This is important as it will protect yourself and our university community.

We also encourage all members of the Maverick family to follow the basic CDC recommendations of covering your cough and sneezes, wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based sanitizer especially after coughing and sneezing, and stay at home if you are sick.

Please continue to use these personal measures to protect yourself and those around you, and continue to monitor for the latest information.
