COVID-19 Emergency Notification

To all Members of the Texas A&M University-Texarkana Community:

The welfare and safety of our community during this time is our primary concern. We are writing to inform you of recent developments relating to COVID-19. Over the past weeks, President Cutrer and other university leaders have communicated warnings and developments daily via mass emails, social media alerts, and a university COVID-19 central website dedicated to our response to COVID-19. We continue to work in concert with the guidance and response efforts of the federal government, the state of Texas and local authorities. This one-time communication provides the required warning related to these events. Ongoing updates regarding A&M-Texarkana actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be posted on https://www.tamut.edu/covid-19.

A student from TAMUT has tested positive for COVID-19. The student has not been on campus since late February and there has been no known exposure to students or campus from this individual. For additional COVID-19 information visit TAMUT’s COVID-19 resource page at www.tamut.edu/covid-19.

We take this opportunity to remind our community of important information regarding COVID-19. In an effort to slow the spread of the virus, we are requesting your immediate attention to and compliance with the following health-authority-recommended practices – not only to ensure your own well-being, but the well-being of others:

  • Engage in social distancing of six or more feet.
  • Stay home when ill or if other family members are ill.
  • Leverage telework options.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Get a flu vaccine.
